Contrast Security Protect Valuable Features
Senior Customer Success Manager at a tech company with 201-500 employees
The Protect solution allows applications to continue to run, even with known vulnerabilities, but will report or block attempts to exploit the vulnerabilities.
The product can be configured to either notify or block activity that attempts to exploit a vulnerability. If it blocks the attack, but permits the application to run, blocking only the attacking transactions. Attack details are sent to the customer SIEM in real-time.
This company used Contrast products (Protect and Assess) as a way to reduce the cost of penetration testing and accelerate release cycles.
