Security – Web Application Gateways – Beyond IPS

Direct attacks on your network and websites have come a long way in the last few years and the traditional Perimeter protection scenarios have since been overwhelmed by the sheer sophistication of perimeter threats.

The threats that traditional IPS cannot detect or prevent to any large extent include:

Web, HTTPS (SSL) and XML vulnerabilities, Large scale SQL Injection, Session Hijacking, Cross Site Scripting (XSS), Form Field Tampering, Buffer Overflow, Cookie Poisoning, Denial of Service, Malicious Robots, Parameter Tampering, Brute Force Logins, Malicious and Illegal Encoding, Directory Traversal, OS Command Injection, Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF), Google Hacking, Remote File Inclusion Attacks, Phishing, Data Leakage, Data Destruction and Anonymous Proxy Vulnerabilities.

All of the above are included in our Web Application and Gateway product, it is automatically set up in hours and self learning in the case of web applications and network configurations with no change to the network or web servers.

Threats have evolved and become industrialized. Attackers are targeting Web applications to get data. The criticality of data has evolved. Data drives businesses more today than at any other time in history. In order to protect the business organizations need to protect the Web applications and the data. This protection requires the next generation of WAF.
