Radware (News - Alert), a company that offers integrated application delivery solutions for business-smart networking, announced today that it’s launched its “APSolute Immunity” security initiative.
The company also said it’s released an enhanced version 4.10 of its DefensePro security solution.
Radware officials say the company’s DefensePro is a real-time Intrusion (News - Alert) Prevention System that maintains business continuity by protecting the IP
infrastructure against existing and emerging network-based threats that’s difficult to detect by traditional IPSs such as application misuse threats, SSL attacks and VoIP
Under the APSolute Immunity umbrella strategy, Radware officials say, the company offers organizations the opportunity to reduce operation expenditures through seamless integration of its transparent security solutions into the network environment. That happens by requiring zero modifications to network settings, they say. Coupled with Radware’s DefensePro security solution, APSolute Immunity strategy allows organizations to move beyond static intrusion prevention systems by mitigating attacks that use legitimate application services for malicious activity, according to the company.
Radware’s APSolute Immunity strategy provides the required “immunity” to ensure real-time protection against many of the attacks that require more than simple, signature-based detection. This includes threats that behave like legitimate user transactions and cannot be detected through a standard signature-based IPS, according to the company.
“Hackers no longer receive thrills from just hacking into an IT system” said Rob Ayoub, an analyst at Frost & Sullivan (News - Alert).
Ayoub said Radware is the only provider with an IPS solution that uses real-time signatures relying on behavioral analysis technology for identifying and blocking new types of attacks.
The upgraded DefensePro solution, version 4.10, is designed to provide greater network visibility, generating detailed reports as to the nature of a network threat or attack, and drawing on client behavioral, network-behavioral and server-behavioral analysis to solve the “lag” associated with non-vulnerability and zero-minute attacks, company officials say.
“Our enhanced APSolute Immunity security approach identifies Layer-7 server resource misuse, abnormal user activity and can block abnormal users’ access to the specific server resources such as web pages or service login under attack,” said Avi Chesla, a vice president at Radware.
