New Albany, OH (PRWEB) December 04, 2012
Privacyware, developer of the leading software–based Web Application Firewall and Host IPS for Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS), announced today an update to its ThreatSentry Web Application Firewall and Intrusion Prevention solution that is fully compatible with the newly released Windows Server 2012, Internet Information Services 8.0 and Windows 8.
ThreatSentry Web Application Firewall features three distinct and fully integrated Web application security technologies including an IIS Filtering Module, Behavior-based Intrusion Prevention Engine and a proprietary network firewall that reliably and effectively identify and block web application threats such as Structured Query Language (SQL) Injection, DDoS, Cross Site Request Forgery (CSRF/XSRF), Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) and other types of attacks. ThreatSentry defense capabilities are based on the OWASP Top Ten Project and helps system administrators comply with regulatory demands such as Section 6.6 of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).
“Meeting client demand for Microsoft operating system support is an ongoing strategic imperative for Privacyware,” said Privacyware CEO Greg Salvato. “Early feedback from Privacyware customers indicated strong interest in Server 2012 and IIS8 and we are pleased to deliver on our commitment of timely support for this exciting and dynamic OS update. The combination of ThreatSentry and Server 2012 with IIS8 offers customers an exceptionally feature-rich and secure platform for web application hosting.”
ThreatSentry delivers proactive defense to secure IIS and prevents attacks from exploiting web application vulnerabilities through a complementary set of integrated components.
- 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.
