When talking about app security, the use of RAST tool,  substitute any other security control, is a valuable add-on, or it is not valuable at all?

By RAST are you referring to Regression or Risk? There are a couple of RASTs in this space.

To clarify, it seems you are referring to RASP (Runtime Application Self-Protection) tools. RASP tools should be viewed as complementary to other security controls rather than replacements. Typically, they are integrated into the application during the development or deployment phases. The decision to use a RASP tool should be based on a thorough assessment of the application's specific requirements and risk profile.

Always remember about Risk Assessment. Conduct a thorough risk assessment to identify potential data loss risks and vulnerabilities. Use this assessment to prioritize DLP efforts.
