Application security needs to work with developers – or get left behind. To facilitate this alignment, AppSec solutions today must support applications written in languages developers are actually using.

When evaluating RASP solutions, you should ask yourself the following: Does this RASP solution cover the programming languages my applications are written in today? And does it cover additional programming languages that my developers are exploring for tomorrow?

As mentioned in our blog, “RASP Value Is Security Coverage”, if you can’t support all of the applications that are in use in the enterprise, the deployment value of a RASP decreases drastically. That is the biggest drawback to current RASP technologies on the market. Oftentimes, RASP works only on certain languages and runtimes and does not provide the breadth of security coverage that practitioners require.
