Risk eliminated, runtime protected

Quit playing whack-a-mole with your CVEs. With Runtime Protection, security teams can filter out and pinpoint vulnerabilities within the application’s execution path and help dev teams cut out 60-90% of unnecessary patching.

Get crystal clarity in runtime

Deploy Runtime Protection in minutes and immediately receive scan results on all of your running containers. See the big picture, zoom in on what’s critical, and ignore the CVEs that don’t matter.

See your runtime execution path

Stuck endlessly scanning and remediating your entire registry? Get a clear view of your runtime environment and your application’s execution path so you can stop worrying about the unnecessary CVE’s hanging out in unused code.

Prioritize with precision

Now that you know what vulnerabilities are actually in your execution path, Runtime Protection will automatically prioritize them by severity. You’ll also get access to any known fixes, CVE and CVSS scoring, published POCs, and Rapid Risk Scoring.

Attack Surface Reduction

Baseline activity with runtime intelligence

Runtime Protection composes a baseline of container activity that will inform your optimization and remediation strategy. It'll also immediately detect unusual software usage and protect your production infrastructure with meaningful, actionable alerts.

Less than 1% compute overhead

Watch and protect your applications in high traffic production environments without incurring compute overhead. Take it a step further and compare your application’s behavior in test vs production environments and ensure your tests are complete.

Remediation on your terms

You don’t have to remediate automatically if you don’t want to. Gather baseline data over time that shows consistent software usage, and comfortably remediate unused packages when you’re ready.

Shift the conversation from CVEs to code quality

Show your dev teams what components are completely unused and ready to be removed – then, give them the tools to do it all automatically.

Secure and harden workloads

Remove 60-90% of your total vulnerabilities in a day. Automatically secure all of your unused components and shrink your software attack surface – without burdening dev teams. RapidFort will immediately detect unusual software usage and protect your production infrastructure with meaningful, actionable alerts.

Sit back and watch your backlog burn

Devs, you are now free. Celebrate the instant elimination of up to 90% of your backlog and carve out a new (work) life for yourself – one that focuses on meaningful projects.

Harden your containers instantly

Generate optimized containers based on real world usage of your applications. Remove unused components, cut size and storage costs, and get a full night’s rest.

Future-proof your CVEs

Reducing your attack surface today doesn’t just impact your posture now – reduce zero day vulnerabilities in the future by having 60-90% less packages to worry about tomorrow.

Secure third party software

Reduce mitigation requests to your vendors by up to 90%. Scan and monitor your vendor software, find the vulnerabilities within the execution path, and help inform their vulnerability prioritization.
