To Support Rapid Scaling, Threat Stack Application Security Monitoring Now Available in Ruby Gems and NPM

BOSTON, Mass. — Threat Stack, the leader in cloud security and compliance for infrastructure and applications, today announced Threat Stack Application Security Monitoring has been added to Ruby Gems and NPM, further increasing deployment flexibility for Threat Stack customers. With Threat Stack Application Security Monitoring available in Ruby Gems and NPM, Threat Stack customers can seamlessly scale and maintain their application security environment. 

This new flexibility comes as Threat Stack Application Security Monitoring continues to scale rapidly with nearly 1 million application security microagents deployed. Since the beginning of 2020, the deployment of Application Security Monitoring microagents has increased by 240% as customers continue to grow and develop their DevSecOps programs. 

When combining Threat Stack Application Security Monitoring with the rest of the Threat Stack Cloud Security Platform®, customers can achieve in-depth security telemetry from the cloud management console, host, containers, orchestration, managed container services, and applications in a single, unified platform. Threat Stack combines this unparalleled telemetry with rules-based threat detection and machine-learned powered anomaly detection from ThreatML™ to detect, assess, and respond to both known and unknown threats in real-time.
