Gartner®: Hype Cycle for Application Security, 2023

In the ever-changing field of application security, it's important for security and risk management leaders to stay updated about new innovations that modernize their security programs and enhance their efficiency.

As organizations create and deploy applications using agile methods, the job of securing the code falls more on developers. New ways of creating applications with cloud-native architectures are making conventional enterprise security methods less useful. And there's also an increase in real-world attacks on applications.

Thankfully, in the next five years, there will be new solutions that can change how we do application security. These encompass using artificial intelligence, automating security workflows, and integrating controls that merge infrastructure and application security. We're sharing this Gartner guide to help your teams navigate these changes and make the most of them.

The Application Security Journey: From Challenges to Innovations

This year’s Hype cycle introduces seven transformative innovations that are reshaping the security landscape. This report guides you through these innovations and their challenges, helping you navigate the evolving landscape of application security.

This report covers the following topics:

  • The maturation of DevSecOps as a critical practice and its ongoing challenges.
  • Innovations like Application Security Posture Management (ASPM) and Policy as Code (PaC).
  • The growing recognition of the importance of secure code training.
  • Tools such as Cloud-Native Application Protection Platforms (CNAPPs) that span development to runtime and API threat protection.
  • The focus on Cloud-Native approaches and the rise of Software Supply Chain Security (SSCS).
  • The dual role of Generative AI in security tasks.
  • Addressing the security of third-party and SaaS applications through SaaS Security Posture Management (SSPM).

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

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.
