Why SAST? Better ROI since DAST works only after a build is reached. Wider Coverage. DAST can’t find non-reflective flaws (XSS). More effective in Agile, DevOps and CICD scenarios. Helps automate the security process and create a secure SDLC. Uses the only advantage the org has over hackers – access to source code. Why DAST?
Why SAST? Cost of Ownership. Requires fewer resources and manpower/staff. Offers better ROI since vulnerabilities are detected early. Even False Positives (FP) don’t affect application performance. Implementation is not limited to web applications. Helps educate developers and promotes secure coding practices. Why WAF? Blocks attacks in real-time and stops data leakage. Some WAF solutions
Why SAST? Better ROI since Penetration Testing can’t work till the app is up and running. Has a higher detection rate. Pen Testing needs many cycles. Offers faster scan results and non-dependent on the human factor. Requires less manpower and resources to analyze results. Doubles as a QA solution and locates dead code / logic
