Introducing SAST into the development process

SAST (Static Application Security Testing) is a method of analyzing application security by checking source code. During the analysis, the SAST tool (a static analyzer) detects code fragments that contain potential vulnerabilities. The main advantage of this method is that developers can use it in the early development stages, and suspicious fragments can be detected even in rarely used code fragments.

SAST solutions are designed to help developers and security specialists find vulnerabilities in source code. SAST also bridges the gap between security and development, making developers more accountable for their product. For SSDLC, the use of SAST tools has been reinforced at the development stage.

In this article you will find out myths about SAST and how to choose the correct one.
