Forrester: The State Of Application Security 2023

Applications are like intricate ecosystems. They consist of legacy code, interconnected microservices, public APIs, and third-party services, all tangled up with open-source and third-party dependencies.

You need to be aware of the security vulnerabilities lurking within this web as they can seriously jeopardize businesses. That's why Security, Development, and Operations teams need to work together to ensure the security of your applications and the sensitive data they handle. This report serves as your compass, enabling you to benchmark your application security program, grasp the latest attack vectors, and stay ahead of emerging security trends.

Shift-Everywhere Is Taking Hold

In the past year, the shift-everywhere movement has gained momentum, revolutionizing application security. Organizations are now embracing complete automation of security across the CI/CD pipeline, creating seamless feedback loops that span from code development to production. This transformative approach enables continuous assessment and response to security issues.

Notably, enterprises have seen increased adoption of tools such as SCA and DAST during the pre-release stage, while web application firewalls, API security, and container security have witnessed a surge in adoption in production environments.

This report covers the following topics:

  • Led by the software supply chain, application security issues dominate
  • SCA emerges as a boon for application security programs
  • Despite the economic downturn, application security budgets are increasing
  • Shift-everywhere gains momentum
  • Act on shift everywhere now while conditions are in your favor

GitGuardian helps these companies bring Dev. Sec. and Ops. together

#1 Security app on GitHub marketplace

Here’s how we are helping developers to secure their code

GitGuardian is a great tool to improve security starting from the development. I greatly appreciated the pre-commit integration that allows developers to very easily prevent accidental commits.

What I like the most about GitGuardian is the ability to automatically scan source code and detect leaked secrets. It has enabled us to add additional security control to our CI/CD pipeline, and enabled us to shift further left in the SDLC by implementing pre-commit hooks for developers to test their code before it is committed.

The perfect GitHub companion! It helps you track any sensitive data you may have shared in the repos, either public or private. Its algorithm is pretty advanced and I've never had any false positives.

We have definitely seen a return on investment when it finds things that are real. We have caught a couple of things before they made it to production, and had they made it to production, that would have been dangerous. For example, AWS secrets, if that ever got leaked, would have allowed people full access to our environment. Just catching two or three of those a year is our return on investment.

Overall, GitGuardian has also helped us develop a security-minded culture. We're serious about shift-left and getting better about code security. I think a lot of people in the organization are getting more mindful about what a hardcoded secret is.

Time to remediation is now in minutes or hours, whereas it used to take days or weeks previously. That's the biggest improvement. Because it is automated and visible to the author, someone from the security team doesn't have to remind them or recheck it. That means the slowdown in the deployment process has definitely been improved by an order of magnitude. There is easily a 30-hour improvement on time to remediation, which is about an 85 percent decrease.

The solution has reduced our mean time to remediation. We are down to less than a day. In the past, without context, knowing who made the commit, or kind of secret it was, sometimes it was taking us a lot longer to determine the impact and what actions needed to be taken.

I can say that tracking down a hardcoded secret, getting it migrated out of source code, getting the secret rotated, and cleaning the Git history took much longer from commit until the full resolution before GitGuardian. We weren't notified until it was too late, but with GitGuardian, we know almost instantly.
