Software intelligence company Dynatrace has enhanced its Application Security Module to provide real-time, automatic attack detection and blocking to protect against injection attacks that exploit critical vulnerabilities, such as Log4Shell.
This builds on existing capabilities, which include automatic detection of runtime vulnerabilities in cloud-native applications and container workloads. As a result, organizations can protect their applications in real time and increase DevSecOps automation, allowing them to strengthen the security of their digital services and accelerate throughput.
Dynatrace Smartscape provides a continuously and automatically updated topology, and Davis, the Dynatrace platform’s AI engine, provides real-time visibility and prioritization of vulnerabilities.
This combination enables Dynatrace to strengthen the security of applications with: precise identification and prioritization of vulnerabilities; proactive remediation of vulnerabilities – achieved through integration into DevOps toolchains, including offerings such as Atlassian, Slack, and ServiceNow; and automatic attack detection and blocking – delivering runtime application self-protection for key Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) threats.
These enhancements will be generally available within 120 days.
