Hertzlia, Israel, 2006/09/26 - The new dotDefender™ version for IIS features a Log Viewer, enhanced User Experience and Advanced Customization Possibilities. TASE: APCR
Applicure Technologies Ltd. announces dotDefender™ version 2.7 for IIS, a new release of its leading web application firewall. dotDefender is a software-based web application firewall deployed as a web server plug-in to identify and stop attacks attempting to exploit vulnerabilities in web applications to commit fraud or gain access to confidential information. This unmatched application firewall is now enhanced with friendly user experience and customization possibilities.
dotDefender™ Version 2.7 for IIS features friendlier GUI, a Log Viewer, and a new installation process. For seamless integration with IIS, dotDefender 2.7 now supports IIS Web Site Description. Additionally, the new version provides sophisticated customization options, such as redirection to honeypot, flexible rule settings, and improved security rules. dotDefender 2.7 supports IIS 5 and IIS 6.
David Allouch, CTO, commented: “Our aim in this version was to support a broader range of deployment scenarios and further improve the functionality and intuitiveness of the dotDefender™ user interface. The Log Viewer and other useful features help our users protect their websites from application attacks in an effortless and simple manner.”
As security products such as network firewalls and anti-virus become commonplace, hackers are turning to application vulnerabilities to attack websites. While network security concerns are widely known and protected against, application vulnerabilities are often ignored and websites are exposed to malicious use. The unique advantage of dotDefender is in providing a software-based solution that is flexible and cost-effective.
Yaacov Sherban, VP Marketing and Business Development, added: “We would like to thank our clients for their feedback and suggestions that were incorporated in this version. We are committed to learn from their experience and improve our products for their success.”
dotDefender is a software-based web application firewall deployed as a web server plug-in to identify and stop attacks that attempt to exploit vulnerabilities in web applications. dotDefender complements the network firewall and other network security products by intercepting seemingly legitimate users attempting to use the web application to commit fraud, or gain access to valuable and confidential information.
