VIRTUAL PATCH

Feature Value
Type Protection
Risk -
Covered by Agent

A security policy enforcement layer which prevents and reports the exploitation attempt of a known vulnerability.

The virtual patch works when the security enforcement layer analyzes transactions and intercepts attacks in transit, so malicious traffic never reaches the web application. The resulting impact of virtual patching is that, while the actual source code of the application itself has not been modified, the exploitation attempt does not succeed.
