Dynatrace Application Security enables you to detect, visualize, analyze, monitor, and remediate open-source and third-party vulnerabilities in production and pre-production environments at runtime.
Dynatrace Application Security is licensed based on the consumption of Application Security units. If you’re already a Dynatrace customer and you want to activate Application Security, contact a Dynatrace product specialist via in-product chat or speak to your account executive. Our DevOps team will evaluate your environment and then activate Application Security.
To monitor the security issues of third-party libraries in your environment, you need to enable the Application Security and OneAgent features. See Application Security monitoring for instructions.
With Application Security you can:
- Get an overview of each vulnerability supported by detailed information that provides additional context, enabling you to dig deeper and examine exposed or affected processes, data storages, libraries, and entities.
- Automatically and continuously identify changes, prioritize problems, and get precise answers about the source, nature, and severity of vulnerabilities.
- Get Davis AI insights into security problems.
To understand how Application Security identifies vulnerabilities and how it determines their priorities, see Security problem management.
