Threat Stack Announces Python Support for Application Security Monitoring

Threat Stack, the leader in cloud security and compliance for infrastructure and applications, today announced Python support for Threat Stack Application Security Monitoring. Included with no additional cost as part of the Threat Stack Cloud Security Platform®, Threat Stack Application Security Monitoring extends security observability throughout the entire software development life cycle.

With support for both Python and Node.js, Threat Stack Application Security Monitoring identifies risk throughout the entire software development life cycle for both third-party and native code while helping developers learn secure coding practices with built-in eLearning capabilities. After an application is put into production, Threat Stack Application Security Monitoring identifies and blocks attacks such as cross-site scripting (XSS) and SQL injection in real time. Unlike other runtime application security solutions, Threat Stack Application Security Monitoring puts the application in context with the rest of the stack, allowing users to navigate in a single click from application to the container or host where it is deployed for deeper forensics in the case of an attack.

When combining Threat Stack Application Security Monitoring with the rest of the Threat Stack Cloud Security Platform, customers can achieve full stack security observability with contextual insights pulled from the cloud management console, host, containers, orchestration, and applications presented in a single, unified platform. Full stack security observability provides Security and DevOps teams with the actionable intelligence needed to proactively reduce risk within their cloud environment and effectively respond to attacks in real time.

“Meeting the pace of innovation in modern application development is at the core of Threat Stack's mission," said Brian M. Ahern, CEO, Threat Stack. "The addition of Python language support to the Threat Stack Application Security Monitoring functionality within the Threat Stack Cloud Security Platform is the latest in our efforts to innovate and meet the growing needs of security and development professionals alike.”
