Snyk Named a Visionary in 2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing

BOSTON – June 1, 2021 Snyk today announced its placement as a Visionary in the 2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing (AST). In our opinion, Snyk’s position within this report recognizes the value of the company’s unique developer-centric approach to cybersecurity and validates its vision for application security for global enterprises currently undergoing digital transformation. 

“In our Magic Quadrant debut, we believe our acknowledgement as a Visionary is the direct result of our distinct developer-centric approach,” said Guy Podjarny, President and Founder, Snyk. “By selecting Snyk’s developer-first security solutions, disruptor enterprises can feel confident that they’re investing in technology that will support them both today and into the future.”

“To be successful today, developers crucially need solutions that empower them to both own and build security into the entire application – from code and open source to containers and cloud infrastructure,” added Aner Mazur, Chief Product Officer, Snyk. “We intend to continue our relentless pace of product innovation, continuing to add feature releases and security depth to our Cloud Native Application Security platform.”

Snyk’s market-leading Cloud Native Application Security Platform is the only solution to provide security visibility and remediation for every critical component of the modern application, including the application code, open source libraries, container infrastructure and infrastructure as code. The company’s AST offering includes Software Composition Analysis (SCA) with Snyk Open Source and Snyk Container as well as Static Application Security Testing (SAST) with Snyk Code and Snyk Infrastructure as Code

Snyk recently joined forces with FossID, its third acquisition within the last six months, following the successful purchases of Manifold and DeepCode. These latest corporate developments come on the heels of the company’s $300 million Series E investment and resulting expansion into Asia Pacific Japan earlier this year.
