RASP products enable applications to protect themselves against attack. By defending from within the application itself, RASP has an inherent information advantage over legacy Web Application Firewalls (WAF), Intrusion Protection Systems (IPS) and Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) products.
Traditionally, Web Application Firewalls have attempted to block attacks at the perimeter, without any knowledge about the applications they are protecting.
Contrast Protect (RASP) uses deep security instrumentation to gain insight into exactly how attacks behave. The better the insight, the more effective at protecting applications.
Application Security at the Speed of DevOps.
Contrast Protect operates within the application, moving and scaling with it, always aware of application context to provide accurate attack visiblity. And, it's more accurate than legacy solutions, blocking cyberattacks without accidentally stopping legitimate business.
