“High-quality Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST) that is relatively easy to deploy has been a dream for many of us AppSec folks who understand the enormous value and potential such a solution could offer. Unfortunately to date no DAST solution stands out, but I believe a change is coming. I joined Bright Security’s advisory board as I saw a unique group of individuals who are committed to solving this problem once and for all – build a DAST that works and is easy to deploy. Their developer-centric DAST solution enables companies to deploy quickly across the SDLC and engage developers and AppSec teams to find and remediate vulnerabilities across WebApps and APIs early.” – Oz Avenstein
