Developers rely on languages like Python, Node.js, and Java to write and release complex web applications, but their rapid development cycles make securing these applications a challenge. Enter RASP (run-time application self-protection), which incorporates vulnerability protection directly into the application to block threats as they appear.

Applications use RASP to self-protect against internal and external attacks by including the security controls into the application runtime engine, such as the JVM. Since the controls are part of the runtime engine, RASP has a comprehensive view of the application’s logic flow, data flow, and configuration.
