DevOps is another trend impacting the future of application security. DevOps techniques provide developers more control over decision-making, and they frequently choose their own programming languages, software libraries, and dependencies. It is nearly hard for AppSec teams to maintain centralized control over this diverse and quickly evolving software stack. 

Recent studies indicate that future systems will be sophisticated, smarter and able to deal with large populations and data. Further, these systems are also able to self-update themselves. 

These trends would gain supremacy over others in terms of the future of application security.
