Protect your legacy and modern applications using a single solution

ShiftLeft adds support for Java Server Pages (JSP) and Java 11

ShiftLeft Inspect, Protect, and Ocular now support Java 11 and JSP. Organizations can now scan, interrogate, and protect their legacy and modern applications using a single solution.

Large enterprises seldom use a single programming language across all their applications. The age of the organization, the mergers and acquisitions they have done over time, the changes in technology leadership, and the evolution of programming languages all result in enterprises using different programming languages for different needs.

In our conversations with enterprises, Java is the language that comes up the most. Java has held the top spot since 2004 in the TIOBE index of programming languages. With the latest release from ShiftLeft, customers can do next-gen code analysis for vulnerabilities, interrogate source code for business logic flaws, and enable runtime protection against exploits across legacy and new Java applications.

Support for non-compiled and pre-compiled JSP

JSP, released in 1999, enabled developers to create dynamically generated web pages. JSP was wildly popular in the 2000s and is still widely used in enterprise applications in conjunction with Java. Our runtime agent can now instrument your JSP code and protect your dynamic web pages. We also support both deployment methods of JSP — precompiled class files and runtime compilation.

Support for Java 11

Java 11 was released a few months ago and is the second long-term support (LTS) release after Java 8. ShiftLeft Inspect, Protect, and Ocular now support applications written in Java 11 all the way back to Java 7 which was released in 2011. That covers applications developed in the last eight years!

ShiftLeft Approach to Java Security

At ShiftLeft, we have created a novel and innovative platform that performs continuous analysis of application bytecode and its dependencies. Also, ShiftLeft monitors and protects the application at runtime depending on actual workloads. ShiftLeft improves Java application security in multiple ways:

  • ShiftLeft detects weaknesses in your source code, such as sensitive data leakage so that coding mistakes are identified during development
  • Based on the code analysis results, ShiftLeft provides run time protection in a highly performant fashion, offering live monitoring and alerting against common attack vectors such as SQL injection (SQLi) and Cross-site scripting (XSS).
