As Enterprises Churn Out Applications, Prevoty Offers Monitoring Solution to Protect Them

With more and more enterprises relying on customized applications to run their businesses, Prevoty, Inc. today announced the availability of Prevoty ASM, a new application security monitoring technology designed to protect business critical applications from security threats.

Prevoty is an enterprise security leader providing monitoring and protection technology specifically for production applications. Its new monitoring software will give enterprises unparalleled insight into security attacks actually waged against their applications. ASM offers software and security leaders clear visibility into which applications to prioritize for remediation.

Applications and the databases they use to store valuable user and performance information have become the number one target for hackers. Enterprises already invest in programs to determine potential application vulnerabilities but, until now, there has been little, if any, intelligence available about the actual attacks encountered by those applications at runtime or insight into which applications have already been compromised.

In a model similar to how application performance management (APM) tools are deployed, applications are instrumented with Prevoty plug-ins without any changes in the application code itself. At runtime, Prevoty ASM then identifies the “who, what, where and when” of an attack, providing two major new benefits to the enterprise:

  • Accurate application threat intelligence that alerts in real-time via SIEMs and can be used to block hackers automatically by blacklisting IP addresses in network security equipment
  • The ability to prioritize expensive vulnerability remediation efforts by identifying which applications in an enterprise portfolio are actually being exploited

“Enterprises have made great strides in identifying vulnerabilities in their applications using testing tools and penetration testing, but the big challenge is remediation at scale,” said Julien Bellanger, co-founder and CEO of Prevoty. “Prevoty ASM’s application threat intelligence allows application builders and defenders to confidently prioritize remediation efforts and assign valuable resources to the places they are needed most.”

The new application security monitoring technology is available in two editions:

  • Prevoty ASM Basic, available free of charge for Java applications, using Prevoty’s cloud-based service
  • Prevoty ASM Pro, available through annual subscription for Java, .NET, Ruby on Rails and Node.js applications, delivered on-premise or by using private or public cloud
