2017 Application Security Statistics Report

The Case for DevSecOps

Read The Report

There are still too many vulnerabilities in applications and it’s still taking too long to fix those vulnerabilities. But this 12th annual web application security report from WhiteHat provides glimmers of hope that things are getting better!


DevSecOps offers light at the end of the tunnel, and we’re starting to see real evidence of the value of security and development working together to secure the applications that drive digital business.


For the first time, our stats report includes a case study of a WhiteHat customer that has taken a DevSecOps approach to securing their applications, and with dramatic results. Critical DAST vulnerabilities have been cut in half. SAST vulnerabilities are remediated in less than half the time of the overall industry.


Read more to learn how to achieve similar results. Besides this compelling case study, the 2017 Application Security Statistics Report provides sections on:



 – DAST & SAST together

 – Mobile application security*


You’ll gain a comprehensive understanding of the state of application security across the whole SDLC, and a helpful blueprint for how to create your own DevSecOps Center of Excellence.
