Empower applications to automatically and accurately self-report vulnerabilities and attacks, and defend themselves
Software vulnerabilities have led to high-impact, high-profile data breaches around the world, making applications the leading source of successful data breaches. Contrast Enterprise automatically infuses security expertise into applications. So development, test and operations teams get secure applications that are protected from attacks.
Traditional approaches like manual code reviews, Static Application Security Testing (SAST), Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST) and Web Application Firewalls (WAF) require teams of experts and are woefully inaccurate. Contrast Enterprise instantly and accurately identifies vulnerabilities during development and attacks in production, enabling businesses to deploy secure, self-protecting applications at the speed of DevOps.
The same Contrast agent that detects vulnerabilities in development automatically blocks attacks targeting production applications. Contrast Enterprise stops the most common attacks, and newly emergent attacks, and provides CVE shields that harden open-source libraries against known attack vectors.
Contrast Enterprise leverages patented Deep Security Instrumentation to capture application security context, and act on it, to identify vulnerabilities and block attacks with unparalleled accuracy. Accuracy dramatically reduces the need for experts and enables Contrast Enterprise to be the leader when run on the OWASP Benchmark Project. Learn more >>
Scalable, automated and accurate, Contrast Enterprise distributes application security testing to all applications in the organization, both internal and external. Contrast Enterprise is built for modern application architectures (APIs, cloud, hybrid, containers) and high-speed development (agile, DevOps, continuous).
Deployed onto an application server, the Contrast agent embeds application security expertise into all applications on the server using patented Deep Security Instrumentation. This approach enables applications to instantly report precisely where they are vulnerable and to defend themselves against attacks. Contrast Enterprise:
Leveraging Deep Security Instrumentation makes Contrast Enterprise the most accurate, fastest and scalable application security solution in the market.
“Information security is a team sport... and in a silo alone, cannot win the battle. We must work with our teammates, whether we're a product owner, dev, test, or ops. We must work with them in order to achieve the goal.
Contrast makes accurately finding and fixing vulnerabilities easy, without the need for application security experts. Applications instrumented with the Contrast agent automatically and accurately self-diagnose where they are vulnerable, down to the line of code. This happens in real-time, as software runs in development and test environments, without the need for separate security scans or any changes to the way software is built, tested, or deployed. Gartner calls this approach Interactive Application Security Testing, or IAST.
Contrast Enterprise accurately detects and blocks application attacks without interrupting legitimate traffic. Contrast instrumentation infuses applications with attack detection and prevention, stays with applications wherever they are hosted, and requires no network architecture changes. In contrast to a Web Application Firewall that operates outside of an application, Contrast works inside applications – after traffic has already been decrypted – delivering real-time protection with sub-millisecond latency. Gartner calls this approach Runtime Application Self-Protection, or RASP.
