Static application security testing

Automate testing for your application source code and identify security risks early in software development with full DevOps integration

Release with speed and confidence

Secure coding is essential for software development to eliminate security vulnerabilities before they can get to your applications. Powered by DefenseCode ThunderScan, our Static Application Security Testing (SAST) solution works hand in hand with your DevOps workflow ensuring security risks in source code are identified early in the software development process.


Automated static analysis helps educate developers and verify application source code compliance standards at scale without the need for security domain knowledge. With a powerful REST API and SaaS integration we deliver fast, accurate and actionable results ensuring seamless security introduction to any CI/CD DevOps environment.

File Manipulation
Cross-Site Scripting
DOM Based Cross-Site Scripting
HTTP Header Injection
HTTP Response Splitting

Error Messages Information Exposure
Log Forging
Detect source code vulnerabilities 

Identify programming errors, unsanitized input processing, and vulnerable constructs in static code to detect bugs, improve code integrity or enforce coding standards early on in development

Prevent late security diagnostics

Ensure your application source code is free of security vulnerabilities e.g. SQL Injections, XSS to prevent coding flaws and reduce cost of remediation before release

Automate code reviews at scale

Scan millions of source code lines and automate complex code inspection at speed with easy REST API integrations into your CI/CD pipeline

Multiple language & framework support

Support for all major development languages and frameworks from C#, Java, PHP, Python, Ruby, C/C++ to ASP.Net MVP, Django, Angular, React and much more! 

High confidence, low noise

Scored highly in the OWASP benchmark project in terms of accuracy for vulnerability detection, with less than 5% false positive

Software composition analysis

Dependency Check component included to detect publicly disclosed vulnerabilities contained within a project’s dependencies with associated CVE entries

Save bug fixing cost and effort

Notify Developers about coding flaws and the exact code segment so they can spend less time finding the root cause and more time on remediation

Ease of security compliance

Ensure continuous compliance checking for PCI-DSS, SANS/CWE Top 25, OWASP Top 10 and NIST so your codebase is always protected with minimal effort

ThunderScan performance scores 52% better in detection than ALL other tested commercial SAST solutions in OWASP Benchmark Results. 

Benefits of static application security testing
Developer & Code Confidence

Provides security tools your developers need to improve code security with speed and confidence

Enhanced DevSecOps

Easy to set up and run scalable tests on the source code on the go with easy integration into your CI/CD pipeline

Vulnerability Elimination

In-depth analysis for identification of software defects, vulnerabilities, and compliance issues in the codebase

SAST vs DAST: difference and use cases

SAST (Static Application Security Testing)

  • Whitebox security testing
  • Requires source code and access to underlying framework, design and implementation
  • Scan codebase and identify errors and security vulnerabilities as it's being written.
  • Cannot detect run-time and environment-related issues
  • Used by DevOps early in the SDLC to reduce technical debt
  • Early security defect detection, less expensive to fix vulnerabilities
  • Best for software developed in-house

DAST (Dynamic Application Security Testing)

  • Blackbox security testing
  • Requires a running application to analyze the full system environments and execution logic
  • Crawl the pages and identify security vulnerabilities as it runs by simulating pen test-like attacks
  • Used by SecOps at the end of development cycle
  • Vulnerability detection in later stage, more expensive to fix once in production
  • Best for security assurance or outsourced development
