Hackers target web applications to get around firewall defences.

Applicure Technologies : 06 December, 2007  (New Product)
Applicure offers web application protection services to prevent hosting companies from being targetted by hackers.
Today's Times story on the shut down of many small websites in a crucial retailing period before Christmas is a further blow to the web hosting community.

Web hosting companies are an easy target to hit multiple businesses in one fell swoop. "Firewalls have improved significantly, so it is now difficult to perform attacks on a network level, therefore hackers are now aiming at the web application level", said Yaacov Sherban, CEO of Applicure. "Unfortunately, web application developers are writing pretty awful code. This is a major issue, and most web applications are vulnerable at some level."

Applicure is an expert in application security products for websites and web-based applications, and offers dotDefender Monitor as a free download. It is the only product on the market that can provide IT professionals with real time alerts on application attacks, sources of attack, and which application vulnerabilities they target. The dotDefender Monitor detects attacks using a database of hundreds of advanced security rules, while an intuitive log viewer allows users to quickly receive information about who is attacking their application.

Applicure Technologies' dotDefender Monitor is based on the technology of dotDefender, Applicure's plug & play web application firewall. It is available free from www.applicure.com.

Applicure monitors and also protects organisations against web application threats. Applicure's dotDefender v3.2 is a security software for web applications which provides advanced protection against external and internal hacking.

dotDefender provides high strength protection against SQL Injection, Cross-site scripting, Path Traversal, and many other application attacks. It is deployed as a web server security plug-in that inspects incoming requests as they are processed by the server. This allows dotDefender to deliver excellent performance and support all types of encryption.

A rules based security engine, dotDefender monitors, blocks and manages attacks against websites and online web applications. An automatic live update ensures continuous protection against emerging threats and 0-day attacks. The plug-in is multiplatform and can be used on Apache, Microsoft ISA and IIS and is geared at the enterprise and SME markets.
