“The outcome of this latest effort enables ThreatSentry to not only deliver deeper request inspection and filtering, but do so more efficiently and flexibly than ever before.”

Privacyware, an innovative provider of pc security, web application firewall and security data analytics software, today announced the availability of an updated version of its IIS Web Application Firewall and Intrusion Prevention solution, ThreatSentry. The new version features enhanced analysis and filtering of IIS traffic that improves stability, flexibility and performance and new archiving capabilities that simplify management and administration of the ThreatSentry Security Alert Log database.

ThreatSentry is a Web Application Firewall that protects Microsoft IIS Web servers, Windows operating systems, backend databases and popular Web application platforms including ASP.NET, PHP, JavaScript and more from known and new threats and helps customers comply with specific industry regulations such as section 6.6 of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and is the Network Products Guide 2010 Product Innovation Award winner in the Web Application Firewall category.

“The increasing complexity of our customers’ enterprise-class Web applications demands regular re-assessment and periodic refactoring of ThreatSentry’s request decoding/preprocessing procedures and core analytic engine,” said Privacyware CEO Greg Salvato. “The outcome of this latest effort enables ThreatSentry to not only deliver deeper request inspection and filtering, but do so more efficiently and flexibly than ever before.”

The ThreatSentry product update also offers new log management features that allow administrators to easily archive the entire Security Alert Log database and reduce the number of Security Alerts displayed in the ThreatSentry Admin Console view. Natively integrating these capabilities simplifies the maintenance and management of ThreatSentry deployments in support of compliance and general IT Security directives.

ThreatSentry delivers deep, multi-layered defense for IIS through a complementary set of integrated components which include:

● State-of-the-art Web Application Firewall – Provides configurable rules-based control over HTTP/HTTPS request methods (OPTIONS, GET, POST, HEAD), URL Paths, URL Query String length, and HTTP Request Headers, rule-specific URL/s exclusion capabilities, URI Encoding support, Regular Expression support for parameter rules/filtering, etc.

● Fully integrated Firewall – Proprietary NDIS driver delivers flexible network IP blocking (featuring white list, black list and duration control) at TCP/IP and UDP layers for all ports.

● Behavior-based Intrusion Prevention – Adaptive, behavior-based engine (with sensitivity control) analyzes Web traffic patterns to detect new threats and behavioral anomalies and deviations.

● Anti-DoS/DDoS - Configurable request frequency monitor blocks successive requests to individual or all site pages to reduce the risk of DoS and DDoS attacks.
