Recommendations for Protecting Applications in Production From Known and Unknown Attacks by Contrast Security published on 2021-04-22T22:32:35Z Traditional perimeter-defense solutions sit outside of applications in production and lack deep insights about applications to more precisely identify potential attacks. The resulting "guessing game" produces high numbers of alerts. Contrast Security's Vikas Phonsa and Blake Connell are experts when it comes to application production runtime protection. In this Inside AppSec podcast, they discuss how perimeter-defense approaches are ineffective in blocking many types of threats and are highly inefficient to deploy and manage—often stretching SecOps teams to breaking points. Contrast Protect supplements traditional perimeter-defense architectures that improve the efficacy of protecting applications while significantly improving the efficiencies of SecOps teams.
