Profense's ability to offer powerful PCI DSS compliant protection for web applications and website in all languages makes it almost unique in the web application firewall market.
Victoria, BC and Copenhagen, Denmark (PRWEB) April 12, 2011
Armorlogic, a leading developer of web application firewall and load balancing software, offers powerful, affordable protection for web applications and websites written in any language, including double byte languages such as Japanese, Korean and Chinese.
“Our web application firewalls protect web applications and web sites written in any language, including double byte languages,” explained Armorlogic Vice President, Jakob Gercke. “Many web applications and websites are multi-language and Profense's ability to offer powerful PCI DSS compliant protection for web applications and website in all languages makes it almost unique in the web application firewall market.” With some of the most serious and high profile attacks coming in Asia this past year, including the South Korean government sites, it is more important than ever for business and governments to ensure they have a web application firewall protecting their web applications and websites or the portions of websites written in double byte languages such as Japanese, Korean and Chinese.
As indicated in the 2010 Web Hacking Incident Database (WHID) report, hackers know no borders and target global businesses with multi-language sites. The recent attack on Epsilon - the largest distributor of permission-based email in the world – demonstrated the far reaching and international nature of these attacks. While Epsilon gave little information on the nature of the attack, Randy Abrams, director of technical education at ESET, says "I have not yet seen details of how the breach occurred. An SQL injection attack would be a decent guess, but it is only a guess. How it happened will only be important to lawyers trying to sue for negligence." This incident demonstrates the need for Profense Web Application Firewall which protects against all the OWASP Top Ten threats including SQL Injection which remains the most common form of attack.
Profense is priced at only $2995 for its full featured, powerful standalone web application firewall so there is no reason for any business or government agency to go without web application security protection against the OWASP Top Ten and PCI DSS section 6.6 compliance. In addition, while web application firewalls in the past have been tied to expensive proprietary hardware, Profense is instead an easy to use, easy to install “soft appliance” that runs on any common server and virtual platforms like VMWare. This independence from hardware leads to easier redundancy and more flexibility around multi-node setup.
