Advanced server health check in Profense Web application firewall

Armorlogic : 09 September, 2009  (New Product)
Automated web application protection and improved reporting and monitoring feature in the latest version of Profense from Armorlogic
Armorlogic, makers of Profense, the web application firewall, has announced the release of a new version that brings further automation to protecting web applications and services, and the reporting, monitoring and alerts to better assess and manage web security. New features and benefits include:


* New automated network level blocking that prevents attackers from identifying and exploiting potential vulnerabilities at the application level. Web application protection now extends beyond the standard denial of service (DoS) mitigation blocking IP addresses based on request numbers and frequency thresholds to now provide the ability to automatically block IP addresses from which hostile requests have been logged. This new form of blocking will be triggered by hostile requests across websites based on risk levels of request or number of requests with predetermined risk levels.

* New health checking of web servers improves website and web application availability ensuring a safe, consistent and uninterrupted experience for website visitors. Profense proactively checks web server availability and allows programmed event based disabling of failed or overburdened web servers with immediate alerting of the event via email or Syslog. HTTP response code and response body checksum methods are supported.

* Expanded support for Web 2.0 applications by adding support for JSON and SOAP web services request format

* Enhanced reporting and monitoring features and functionality give greater visibility to threatening activity and allow for aggregate and individual website deny log viewing, highly specific policy building and highly configurable event reporting. The new Profense Dashboard allows for individual and cross website analysis.


'In these times when every expenditure is questioned, it is important that we not only offer the best value but that we reduce IT admin time through enhanced reporting and management tools,' said Jakob Gercke, Vice President of Armorlogic. 'With our new Dashboard and enhanced, and infinitely configurable, reporting features, we give IT staff the tools they need to quickly and efficiency assess the threats and effectiveness of the protection they receive by deploying Profense across all their websites'.


The full featured, complete and powerful standalone Profense Web Application Firewall which provides full PCI DSS compliance is priced at $5950, and in addition to installation in the production environment additional nodes are also allowed in the development and staging environment allowing for integrating the WAF all the way through the development process without having to short circuit the environments to avoid having to buy an extra WAF.
