Detect and block run-time attacks on known and unknown code vulnerabilities with greater precision


Contrast Protect with Runtime Application Self Protection (RASP) is production application and API protection that blocks attacks and reduces false positives, helping developer teams prioritize vulnerability backlogs


Block attacks against vulnerabilities not yet fixed or patched

Unlike perimeter defenses, instrumentation and sensors accurately detect and block runtime application attacks. Get a firm yes or no on whether the exploit reached its target. Protects against many zero-day attacks without tuning or reconfiguration.



Give AppSec, SecOps & Dev accurate, detailed information: the lines of code, queries executed, files accessed, and more. Faster remediation.



Whether it’s large scale enterprise IT environments, or mid-market growth companies, you get the application protection you need. Harden your applications against zero-day attacks and other vulnerabilities from the inside.

Contrast Protect for Log4j

Contrast Protect can stop the Log4j vulnerability today, in your application production systems, without requiring software upgrades. In addition, Contrast Protect defended the applications against the underlying vulnerability. This means, Contrast was protecting you against log injections long before it was disclosed as a CVE.

eBook: State-of-the-Art Protection and Observability Is AppSec Exactly Where It Is Needed--In Production Runtimes

This eBook examines how runtime application protection and observability delivers a state-of-the-art approach to application security. Readers will gain the information needed to evaluate runtime application protection and observability solutions and how they augment perimeter defenses (such as WAFs).


Podcast: Protecting Apps from Known and Unknown Attacks

Contrast Security's Vikas Phonsa and Blake Connell are experts when it comes to application production runtime protection. In this Inside AppSec podcast, they discuss how perimeter-defense approaches are ineffective in blocking many types of threats and are highly inefficient to deploy and manage—often stretching SecOps teams to breaking points.
