Allendale, NJ (PRWEB) October 6, 2009
STIGroup announced today that it is now offering dotDefender, the Web application security solution from Applicure Technologies, as a managed service to its diverse and expanding customer base. The addition of the dotDefender Managed Service offering expands STIGroup's capability to effectively deliver Web Application Firewall to businesses while minimizing the impact on their current systems and operations.
Web application flaws are being exploited to compromise sensitive information at an unprecedented frequency. Current network and host-based Intrusion Prevention Systems simply do not provide adequate defense against this increasingly prevalent threat -- in many cases such activity goes undetected. dotDefender provides effective protection against web application attacks such as SQL Injection and Cross-Site Scripting as well as other common network-based attacks against Web servers. The managed service offering quickly provides customers with a powerful solution with no disruption to their infrastructure, and more importantly, their business:
- Installed and protecting valuable Web assets in 8 business hours or less
- No design changes to existing networks
- No burden on IT resources
- Monthly charge with no minimum contract
"AppliCure's dotDefender has become a strategic product for us because it provides protection for Web applications that is superior to that provided by Intrusion Detection and Prevention systems", stated Dominic Genzano, Senior Partner with Secure Technology Integration Group, Ltd. "This has been borne out by the fact that the PCI DSS [Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard] now emphasizes the use of a Web Application Firewall in addition to other measures. dotDefender stands out for its ability to provide active protection while effectively minimizing false positives; this is important because it is not uncommon for businesses to disable active protection in some security products due to the business interruption and management burden that false positives can represent."
Yaacov Sherban, CEO of Applicure Technologies, commented, "Web applications have rapidly become the hacker's target of choice. STIGroup has wisely recognized this and put together a compelling offering that can be implemented quickly and painlessly, and immediately provide enterprise-class website defense. We are delighted to expand our partnership with STIGroup via the addition of the dotDefender Managed Service."
Web application security is a new challenge for many businesses, and some prefer to put technology in service without committing to a long term contract or re-architecting networks to suit the tool. Other businesses may need to implement quickly to deal with regulatory requirements or critical security concerns. Regardless of the situation, it is STIGroup's culture to work with clients in the way that best meets their needs. The Managed Web Application Firewall offering provides additional flexibility in adapting the dotDefender technology to solve security challenges.
