Innovative products such as ThreatSentry are bringing urgently needed improvements in web application security to network administrators within organizations large and small, says Rake Narang, editor-in-chief at Network Products Guide.

Privacyware announced today that Network Products Guide, the industry’s leading information technology research and advisory guide has named ThreatSentry a winner of the 2010 Product Innovation Awards. This annually venerated award recognizes and honors vendors, large and small, from all over the world with innovative and ground-breaking products that are bringing essential and incremental changes and are setting the bar higher for others in all areas of information technology.

ThreatSentry is a multi-layered Web Application Firewall that protects Microsoft Windows Web servers from a broad range of web application threats including Cross Site Request Forgery (CSRF/XSRF), Structured Query Language (SQL) Injection, Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) and other attacks. ThreatSentry combines an advanced web application firewall, a proprietary NDIS driver, and an AI-based intrusion prevention engine to identify and take action against known and new threats. ThreatSentry also fulfills the web application layer firewall (WAF) requirement in PCI DSS 6.6 and aids in the web application code review process by revealing vulnerabilities embedded within software code.

“Innovation is not just about new products alone," says Rake Narang, editor-in-chief at Network Products Guide. “To succeed companies need to see innovation not as a one time errand but as something that has to be continuously evolved and improved upon over and over again. This requires putting greater focus on customer needs and making innovation the center of company's way of developing better solutions. Innovative products such as ThreatSentry are bringing urgently needed improvements in web application security to network administrators within organizations large and small.

ThreatSentry’s pre-configured attack filters and optimized out-of-box application settings ensure immediate server and web application protection. Extensive customization options enable systems administrators and other IT and compliance staff to easily implement custom-tailored solutions relative to their specific business needs. Priced at $649 per server, no other IIS Web Application Firewall offers greater defense capabilities and ease-of-use at a more affordable price.
