Dynatrace Enhances Application Security Module
February 14, 2022

Dynatrace 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 – Providing teams with a clear understanding of the most important vulnerabilities to address and eliminating the time they spend chasing false positives.

- Proactive remediation of vulnerabilities – Achieved through integration into DevOps toolchains, including offerings such as Atlassian, Slack, and ServiceNow.

- Automatic attack detection and blocking – Delivering runtime application self-protection for key Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) threats, including SQL injections and command injections.

“Organizations are working to improve security posture through application security testing and DevSecOps processes, but it's not enough for highly dynamic cloud-native environments,” said Steve Tack, SVP of Product Management, Dynatrace. “To enable our customers to be proactive, innovative, and secure, we are thrilled to add the ability to automatically block attacks in real time to our existing strengths – identifying and prioritizing vulnerabilities. With Dynatrace’s intelligence and automation, organizations can reduce risk across the software development lifecycle, accelerate throughput, and secure modern cloud workloads and applications.”

These enhancements will be generally available within 120 days.
