Application Security Trend Report

In August 2021, DZone surveyed software developers, architects, and other IT professionals in order to understand the state of application security.

Major research targets were:

  1. Security-aimed development and testing techniques used well and poorly
  2. Where responsibility for application security is located
  3. The role of application security in the SDLC


We created a survey and distributed it to a global audience of software professionals. Question formats included multiple choice, free response, and ranking. Survey links were distributed via email to an opt-in subscriber list and popups on DZone. com. The survey was opened on July 28th and closed on August 13th. The survey recorded 515 responses.

In this report, we review some of our key research findings.
