Yes, Developers are good Security testers. As they know how the data is handled in code, how the authentication for a particular screen is done, how the UI is maintained in hiding any sensitive information. But yet a security tester is required, as developers do not reveal any potential bugs known to them (This is a common human behavioral). But if a developer turns out to be a Security Tester in later point of time, chances are more bugs could be found.
