Application Security only takes a minute to add the agent to your application, and there is no need to change your application code. When the application starts, the Application Security agent discover the components making up the application, and inserts hooks at strategic location enabling the agent to inspect data and run security algorithms. This approach simplifies how security is delivered and is a significant shift for application developers who need immediate, real-time protection for their apps and customers.

The steps for integrating an agent into your application depend on your supported framework. The supported platforms are:

We will continue to add new frameworks to our supported list based on market demand.
