Web Application Firewall Delivers Comprehensive Security Dashboard, Protection for Web Services and Support for Multiple Platforms
KaVaDo, the technology leader in Web Application Protection, today announced the release of InterDo 3.0. Built on the KaVaDo patent-pending Protected Path? technology, InterDo 3.0 is the most advanced Web application firewall available, designed to automatically and accurately block both known and unknown threats before they can reach critical back-end infrastructure.
"KaVaDo takes a holistic approach to Web application security by integrating complementary security and assessment products in an easy to manage solution," explained Eric Ogren, senior analyst for the Yankee Group. "The Yankee Group forecasts the Web application security market, led by companies like KaVaDo, to exceed $1.8 billion by 2006 as enterprises rely more on Internet accessible applications."
InterDo 3.0 plays a key role in the KaVaDo integrated suite of Web Application Protection products. By intercepting incoming and outgoing Internet traffic, InterDo 3.0 defines acceptable behaviour with respect to Web application use. This is a significant advantage compared to negative-security models that rely upon specific patterns and signatures that require continuous updates.
Among a number of key new features and enhancements, the InterDo Security Dashboard revolutionises the way administrators define and manage end-to-end application security by further integrating functions into a centralised console. With the Dashboard?s unparalleled ease-of-use, administrators can manage their security policies with greater efficiency and control, making InterDo an ideal solution for both small and large enterprises with Web application environments of any size.
"InterDo is an important part of our layered approach to security, blocking attacks that are not recognised by other security devices like intrusion detection systems and network firewalls," said Steven Zimmerman, Assistant Director, Technology Risk Management, Regions Financial Corporation. "We are pleased by the new enhancements in InterDo 3.0, especially the Security Dashboard, which provides a very manageable, straightforward process for us to secure our expanding Web applications. KaVaDo continues to be very accommodating to our security needs, allowing us to address emerging technologies and threats."
KaVaDo provides what is needed to effectively round out Web application and IT security by protecting against application-layer security breaches. InterDo 3.0 includes a variety of new features that provide greater scalability, efficiency and technology.
- AutoPolicy ? increases the precision of application security based on the structure and attributes identified by assessment scanners and other trusted sources.
- Security Dashboard ? revolutionises the way administrators define and manage end-to-end application security by further integrating functions into a centralised console.
- Virtual hosting policies ? secures multiple hosts residing on a single Web server with separate policies that exactly fit the requirements of each Web application.
- Multi-platform ? supports any Web application running on any server automatically, including Linux, Solaris and Windows platforms.
- SOAP and WebServices ? supports protocols and addresses their unique vulnerabilities both at the XML structure and data levels.
"We work very closely with our customers to meet their growing needs and have received great feedback on the new InterDo 3.0 features. Companies should be confident that they can leverage Web application technology while still maintaining a high level of security, which does not have to be a difficult or time-consuming process," said Yuval Ben-Itzhak, CTO and co-founder of KaVaDo. "InterDo 3.0 addresses the security requirements of existing IT environments without straining corporate resources, and our unique AutoPolicy technology can immediately set optimised, positive security policies to protect any application. InterDo users consistently see benefits right away, eliminating the Web application attacks that relentlessly threaten their information systems."
InterDo 3.0 is available immediately and can also be purchased as an appliance.
