What is RASP - Runtime Application Self-Protection?

Runtime application self-protection (RASP) is a term popularized by Gartner to describe an emerging application security technology.


With RASP, specific functionality is built right into an application, or added into an application's runtime environment or underlying operating system. By instrumenting an application's code from this position, RASP is capable of monitoring application behavior while it's running and can take real-time actions to minimize malicious exploits.
