The number of applications being developed and deployed to meet business needs continues to increase, while agile development methodologies drives the shortening of development cycles and testing time. These factors are driving increases in application-level vulnerabilities that are quickly detected and exploited by adversaries. Traditional approaches for dynamic and stations application security testing are often too slow to meet the accelerated pace of today's business environment and don't provide any way to protect vulnerable applications until they can be patched.

During this SANS WhatWorks webcast, Josh Bentley, Application Security Manager at Liberty Mutual, will provide details of his selection and deployment of Contrast Security to enable discovery and inventory of application vulnerabilities and the use of Runtime Application Self Protection (RASP) to shield business critical applications awaiting patching. Join SANS Director of Emerging Security Trends John Pescatore and Josh to hear details on the selection, deployment and experience using Contrast Security. The webcast will contain a discussion of lessons learned and best practices as well as detail the metrics used to demonstrate the value of improved application security and faster security response.
