April 21

Watch Now

As government organizations quickly embraced hybrid and multi-cloud technologies at the onset of the pandemic, they also faced an unprecedented rise in malicious security threats, testing the limits of existing monitoring practices. Now that the initial stages of the emergency have passed, organizations need a better way to monitor increasingly complex applications, understand potential security impacts and strategically prioritize response.

Join Government Technology and experts from AppDynamics on April 21 at 11:00am PT/2:00pm ET as we explore how a new approach to application security can protect business-critical applications continuously from the inside out.

We’ll discuss how a comprehensive application monitoring strategy can enable you to:

  • Provide real-time visibility into vulnerabilities and threats so you can mitigate them at the application level and reduce organizational risk
  • Embed security into the application runtime without adding performance overhead to unlock security insights without friction
  • Catch threats in moments, not months
