Mend.io Named a Visionary in the 2023 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Application Security Testing

Mend.io delivers complete automated remediation workflows for both open source and custom code

TEL AVIV, Israel and BOSTON – May 23, 2023 – Mend.io announced today that the company has been positioned by Gartner as a Visionary in the 2023 Magic Quadrant for Application Security Testing.* The evaluation was based on specific criteria that analyzed the company’s overall completeness of vision and ability to execute. 

“This is an important time for application security as the consequences of insecure and vulnerable applications are being felt by businesses and consumers around the world. The threat environment facing the supply chain is rapidly worsening, and those developing software are increasingly being held accountable for its security. Yet enterprises still struggle to deliver secure code into production and fix critical vulnerabilities or respond to new attacks in a timely way. We believe the best and most effective way for organizations to improve their application posture is through automation,” said Rami Saas, Mend.io founder and CEO.

Mend.io, an innovator of open-source security, has expanded its product portfolio to encompass SAST, containers, IAC, and supply chain detection. The company also manages Renovate, the industry’s best source of data on trusted fixes, with more than one billion downloads to date. This intelligence is baked into Mend.io workflows, enabling developers to upgrade with confidence.  Today, Mend.io has hundreds of enterprise customers that rely on this data for automated fix suggestions. 

 Mend.io’s vision for application security

We solve the toughest problems in application security for the largest and most demanding organizations in the world, and we do it with automation. Mend.io was the first application security vendor to provide automated remediation workflows for both open source and custom code.
