The Kiuwan Buyer’s Guide for Developers

We don’t need to convince you that Kiuwan is the only static application security testing (SAST) solution you need to write code that’s secure and impervious to hackers. However, we understand that you may need to make a case to someone else who decides how to spend the budget.

Don’t worry, we put together a buyer’s guide so developers like you can present decision-makers with the compelling information they need to see the value of using Kiuwan.


Competitors In Your Industry Already Use Kiuwan

For nearly 20 years, Kiuwan has been recognized as the premier application security solution that serves high-value organizations across the world.

“Can We Afford This Solution?”

You Can’t Afford Not to Use Kiuwan

According to the IBM Security report, this year the average worldwide cost of a data breach is $4.45 million. In the United States, it’s even higher — $9.48 million. That means that the risk of not securing your applications could cost your business a literal fortune.

And it’s not just the direct cost of having to remediate the attack — your brand may never recover from the damage. If your applications acquire a reputation for poor security, overcoming and reestablishing credibility can be impossible.
