By ensuring parallel functioning of the development, security testing and remediation phases, Prevoty expedites product delivery and time-to-market. “At this stage, if the application is found vulnerable to threats, it can be released without schedule delays, as the application is embedded with Prevoty’s scrutinized monitoring,” explains Bellanger. Venturing deeper into their application security portfolio, highlights the features of Prevoty Application Security Monitoring & Protection—the vendor’s flagship product.
Prevoty Application Security Monitoring & Protection is a bundled package incorporating two elementary components— instrumentation and security agent. The instrumentation agent essentially captures data from the limited entry points, including browser input, database queries, and uploading systems. The actual security agent comprises an inlaid language security engine, which supports various frameworks like Java and .NET, and programming languages from Ruby on Rails to PHP and Python. Unlike the traditional pattern-matching approach, which hampers application performance drastically, Prevoty perceives input data in its actual form instead of making guesses.
Prevoty’s LANGSEC-based RASP (Runtime Application Self-Protection) solution— resides inside the app and communicates with the security engine to safeguard the application against malicious input.
Application security needs contribution from both application builders and defenders. Prevoty begins by embedding security within the application
Featured in two different models—network model either offered via API or cloud integration with the security engine itself encased within the application. Prevoty’s partnership with Amazon offers enterprise AWS (Amazon Web Services) users exclusive and easy integration of runtime security from their Amazon accounts.
Prevoty’s high-performance solutions consume less memory and are affordable and lightweight, which encourages organizations to more efficiently allocate their security resources. Bellanger cites the example of a major global payments processing institution, which found unwieldy vulnerabilities in the production environment of their legacy applications. Given limited choices, they began comparing investment strategies of hiring resources to fix the security threats versus finding a viable product-based solution, and finally decided to go with Prevoty’s offerings. By implementing Prevoty’s runtime security technology into the organization’s applications, they were able to alleviate the vulnerabilities without additional expenditure on critical resources—time, money and people.
Bellanger values the language security engine to be their USP, which sets their service apart from other security solution providers. “The ability to monitor application security complements legacy firewall solutions and only paves way for added security,” adds Bellanger.
With a three-forked expansion roadmap— geographical, product line and partnership— Prevoty has plans to rollout to European and APAC markets by securing alliances with partner systems. “We are just around the corner of launching innovative additions to our product line of application security monitoring and protection with newer and better flavors of RASP,” assures Bellanger.
