RASP - 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 is running and can take real-time actions to minimize malicious exploits.
