Containerized, “bring-your-own security” solution consists of an Apache Tomcat app server with the Waratek Locker
by John K.Waters
Waratek Locker, a new security tool for Java developers deploying apps in Microsoft’s Azure cloud environment, was unveiled this week at the Microsoft TechEd Europe conference in Barcelona. The solution is described by the company as a containerized Runtime Application Self-Protection (RASP) product that provides security monitoring, policy enforcement, and attack blocking from within the Java Virtual Machine (JVM).
Dublin-based Waratek, which specializes in Java security, is billing Locker as an all-in-one, Microsoft Azure Certified solution that combines the Apache Tomcat app server (version 7) with Waratek’s Application Security for Java product. The company coined “BYOS” to describe what the RASP solution provides.
