Contrast Assess and Contrast Protect

About technology

Contrast Security brings the era of scanning and firewalls to an end, introducing an era of self-protecting software that leverages the power of instrumentation. Contrast's patented deep security instrumentation is the breakthrough technology that enables highly accurate assessment and always-on protection of an entire application portfolio, without disruptive scanning or expensive security experts. Only Contrast has sensors that work actively inside applications to uncover vulnerabilities, prevent data breaches, and secure the entire enterprise from development, to operations, to production. Contrast Security’s Interactive Application Security Testing (IAST) product, Contrast Assess, makes application security an automated, continuous and seamless part of software development. Contrast Assess focuses on vulnerabilities and instantly alerts development teams so they can fix code without disrupting software development. Contrast Protect identifies and blocks attacks, rendering them ineffective. Once instrumented with Contrast Protect, Contrast Security’s runtime application self-protection (RASP) product, 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. Together, Contrast Assess and Protect provide organizations with a comprehensive self-protecting software solution that works in data-center, cloud, and container, throughout an application’s development and deployment. Organizations using Contrast solutions receive continuous, always-on visibility into the security of their applications. By knowing what’s happening across the entire application portfolio, organizations can prioritize their development and operations teams to remedy the most critical risks immediately, and reduce friction throughout the entire software lifecycle.
