Contrast Protect

Monitoring and Protection
for Cloud Applications

Contrast Security Review: CSO MAGAZINE – "One of the most elegant solutions out there for application security." Read the review.

Real-time monitoring. Intelligent Response. Security anywhere.

See into your application and protect it like never before.

Real-time Monitoring

Monitor Security like Performance

By being within the application itself, Contrast gives you visibility into the application like never before. Contrast Protect provides actionable and timely application layer threat intelligence across the entire application portfolio. Once instrumented with Contrast Protect, applications will self-report the following about an attack at a minimum – the attacker, method of attack, which applications, frequency, volume, and level of compromise. In addition, Contrast Protect also provides specific guidance to engineering teams on where applications were attacked and how threats can be remediated.

Application Intelligence

Monitor Anything in your Application Stack from Anywhere

Contrast Protect standard attack and event logging provides unprecedented clarity. And, Contrast Protect Log Enhancement extends this capability into the inner workings of application and user behavior. Log Enhancers enable users to log anything in an application and send that data to your log management or SIEM system of choice.

Contrast seamlessly integrates into any existing monitoring infrastructure.

Rapid Zero Day Protection

Rapid Zero-Day Protection

In the event of zero day attacks, Contrast Protect virtual patching capabilities enable a rapid response to all affected applications. Administrators can quickly create and deploy patches within seconds. In addition, Contrast Labs provides instant guidance and quick product updates that can be effortlessly scaled to the entire application portfolio.

Smart Blocking

Smart Blocking

Contrast can discern the efficacy of an attack and the impact it could have on applications.  Effective attacks are blocked and ineffective attacks are logged. Contrast only intervenes when required, thereby minimizing the impact on baseline application behavior.

Cloud Security Anywhere

Scalable Protection for your Cloud Applications

With Contrast Protect, applications are protected regardless of where they reside. Contrast is embedded within the application, enabling the security measures to follow the application wherever it is deployed. No additional work is required to move or scale Contrast along with the application. And, no network configuration changes or new solutions are needed when migrating applications to the cloud or within the cloud.

What you get with Contrast Protect

Leveraging patented deep security instrumentation makes Contrast the most accurate, fastest and scalable application security solution. Protect works well with legacy, containerized or cloud-based applications, ensuring:



Unlike WAF and IPS solutions, no network configuration is necessary. Contrast Protect (with RASP) doesn’t need to “learn” applications – instead it becomes part of them. And, unlike other RASP solutions, Contrast does not require any changes to applications or the runtime environment.


Regardless of whether applications are accessed via browsers, mobile clients, thick clients or desktop applications, Contrast Protect ensures attacks are detected, stopped and logged. Contrast works perfectly with web applications, in containers, frameworks, in the cloud, web services, and APIs.


As Contrast Protect becomes part of the application, it scales as your application scales. Every application now protects itself constantly and therefore removes the bottlenecks caused by legacy security appliances.


Even under the heaviest attack load, Contrast Protect provides sub-millisecond protection. Because protection is infused directly into the applications themselves, there is no faster way to enforce security policy.

Here’s what our clients are saying

"It is absolutely essential. If you don’t do it continuously (application security) you are always running behind." READ STORY >>
Tim Chase
Director of Application Security, Nielsen
You have to introduce security at the beginning (SDLC). It is a waste of money to introduce security as a last minute 'kicking of the tires.' Security has to be from the bottom up."

Self-protecting applications. Protect your company.

Speed Up Development, Don't Hold it Up. Application security has long been split between development, where testing is crucial, and operations, where protection is paramount. Contrast Protect monitors and protects in real-time from inside the application, so developers get actionable, code-level details about attacks.
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.
Application Security Visibility, Protection and Automation. Contrast Protect adds missing security controls into applications to monitor and protect applications continuously in production. Contrast integrates into your toolchain, putting security insights into your hands via SIEM integration, chatops and other channels.

Assessing applications is complex, but Contrast makes it easy.
