Applications are the blind spot of cyber security with most resources directed at securing the perimeter. Runtime Application Self Protection – RASP – is the next generation of application security associated with an application’s runtime environment. Waratek’s RASP solution detects and prevents real-time attacks, such as SQL Injection or Remote Code Execution, with no false positives, doesn’t slow your applications’ performance, and increases the visibility into your apps’ operations – benefits not possible with traditional approaches to today’s threats.

Using the Just-in-Time Compiler of Java and .NET platforms, Waratek’s RASP solutions also give you the ability to instantly remediate known vulnerabilities with runtime virtual patches as well as virtually upgrade out-of-support Java-based applications.

“A week after we installed the Waratek solution we got hit with more deserialization attacks,” the CISO says. “Because of Waratek’s solution, the attacks were immediately stopped, and the solution automatically alerted us to the attempt. All of the hacker’s malicious scripts failed, which took us to a new level of confidence — the Waratek virtual patch is providing the protection we need, better and faster than we ever thought possible.”

Find out how Waratek Enterprise works

Heuristic-based approaches to app security such as WAF and IPS Solutions make it very difficult to operate your protection tools in unconditional blocking mode because there are too many false positives and other issues that have the potential to affect the operation of your apps. Waratek’s unique and patented protection allows customers to confidently run their apps in full blocking mode from the start. Providing protection from known and unknown vulnerabilities (0-day) with no false positives, no tuning, no code changes and ultra-low performance overhead.
