Dynatrace has extended its Application Security Module to detect and protect against vulnerabilities in runtime environments, including the Java Virtual Machine (JVM), Node.js runtime, and .NET CLR. In addition, Dynatrace has extended its support to applications running in Go, one of the fastest-growing programming languages, with adoption increasing by 23 percent last year.
With these enhancements, the Dynatrace platform provides real-time visibility and vulnerability analytics across the entire application stack, which includes custom code, open-source and third-party libraries, language runtimes, container runtimes, and container orchestrators. Dynatrace not only identifies vulnerabilities across each of these layers automatically but also analyzes them to provide actionable and precise answers out-of-the-box. This empowers development and security teams to assess risk better, prioritize and remediate threats more effectively, and innovate faster and with increased security.
Language runtimes are a critical layer of the application stack as they ensure apps are available and well-executed on any platform without having to be rewritten or recompiled. By extending its Application Security Module to support runtimes in the most widely adopted programming languages, Dynatrace delivers the industry’s most comprehensive application vulnerability analysis, spanning all potential entry points in pre-production and production environments.
Dynatrace plans to make these enhancements available within the next 90 days.
