*Each application portfolio to be analyzed requires its own discreet subscription and subscriptions cannot be shared across multiple portfolios supporting different companies and/or belonging to different owners. Applications within a portfolio are defined as "named applications" in the CAST Highlight SaaS portal. Applications can be defined in several ways and according to different boundaries. A typical application is a set of custom code-based software components that support a particular business function, such as an order management system, a website to make a reservation, or a software product, packaged or embedded into a large system or hardware. Actual statistics across hundreds of CAST customers show that the average number of “applications” that constantly evolve and carry most of the software risk and cost per organization varies from 10 to 1000, from small IT departments to very large ones. Applications must be owned or licensed to the company client and support its own business processes or products.

Annual subscriptions are automatically renewed unless cancelled with a 60-day notice.

CAST Highlight is a highly secured SaaS platform that is ISO 27001 certified. Analysis results are stored in a client reserved cloud, hosted on AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google Cloud, but the process never requires the upload of source code or database scripts to the cloud. [See How It Works]
