SAN JOSE, Calif., May 5, 2020WhiteHat Security, an independent subsidiary of NTT Ltd. and a leading application security provider, today announced it has been named a Leader in the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing (AST). This Leader position is based on the ability to execute and completeness of vision. This is WhiteHat’s fifth time being named a Leader in this report.

WhiteHat’s Sentinel application security platform offers a complete set of capabilities for dynamic, static, API, mobile and software composition analysis. The Sentinel platform delivers cloud and managed services, enabling businesses to quickly deploy an application security program across the entire software lifecycle (SLC). By combining both human and artificial intelligence with comprehensive attack and vulnerability research conducted by its Threat Research Center (TRC), WhiteHat helps customers identify and remediate vulnerabilities within all their applications.

The recognitions for WhiteHat Security come at a momentous time for the company. In July of 2019, WhiteHat was acquired by NTT Ltd., a leading global technology services company. This immediately enabled WhiteHat to bring solutions and professional services to clients in over 100 countries where NTT Ltd. operates. With major wins in 2019 across the Americas, Europe, Australia and Japan, WhiteHat Security continues to leverage channel partners, direct sales teams, and the global presence of NTT Ltd. to service customers worldwide.

In the companion Research Note to the “Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing” (April 2020) —  the “Critical Capabilities for Application Security Testing” (April 2020) – WhiteHat Security has been named number one for application security testing for “Public-Facing Web Application” and number two for “Enterprise” testing  and “Mobile and Client” testing. We think our positions in these reports underscore WhiteHat Security’s ability to deliver its technologies and services in the areas most critical to modern enterprises.

We’re honored that a company like ours can be recognized.”
