JSON based web services supported by Profense application firewall

Armorlogic : 29 September, 2009  (New Product)
Armorlogic's web application firewall, Profense, now provides support to JSON as used by an increasing number of web 2.0 application programs for social networking sites
Armorlogic, the makers of the Profense web application firewall, have added support for JSON, after adding XML support last year. Profense is the first web application firewall to support JSON based web services. The use of JSON has exploded as developers of social networking sites and Web 2.0 applications select it for its low overhead.

Social networking sites were the most attacked vertical in the first half of 2009 with hackers exploiting Web 2.0 features such as user generated content including Twitter posts to launch their attacks, according to the Web Hacking Incidents Database (WHID) 2009 Bi-Annual Report. The stakes have never been higher with sites like Facebook trying to introduce new business models. Facebook surpassed 300 million users this year.

'With the movement of online social networking towards sustainable business models, they are now being targeted by hackers' said Jakob Gercke, CEO and co-founder of Armorlogic. 'We introduced XML support last year and have added JSON this year to ensure web application and web site protection is available for everyone.'

Added Armorlogic CTO, Srebrenko Sehic, 'our initial customer requests for JSON support came from online payment service providers needing to deploy our Profense web application firewall to maintain PCI DSS compliance for JSON based web applications and services'.

Armorlogic's Profense web application firewall is used by thousands of businesses and agencies around the world to secure their websites, web applications and web services from hackers. By being the first web application firewall to support JSON based web applications and services, it confirms Profense's status as a web application firewall of choice for social networking sites and Web 2.0 applications.
