|SecureSphere 9.5 Automates Profile Optimization to Minimize Complexity of Emerging Web Application Frameworks|
The emergence of Web 2.0 has resulted in widespread adoption of complex Web application frameworks, which can be difficult to efficiently secure. Imperva's patented Dynamic Profiling capability helps to improve security accuracy by recognizing unusual Web requests and by validating input. Dynamic Profiling also can be used to detect attacks that evade by signature-based protection, including parameter tampering and cookie injection. With this release, the Dynamic Profiling has been updated with experience across numerous enterprises, and is now optimized for contemporary methods of application deployments.
"A great challenge that IT departments face today is staying abreast with the rapid pace of relevant new Web application technologies and understanding how they fit into the enterprise security model," said Amichai Shulman, CTO, Imperva. "With the latest version of SecureSphere, Imperva is supporting these new application frameworks and automating management of modern, dynamic applications, helping IT departments to stay ahead of this complexity."
SecureSphere Web Application Firewall (WAF) protects applications from security threats by combining multiple security engines into a cohesive Web defense. Certified by ICSA Labs, SecureSphere provides protection against the OWASP Top Ten, including SQL Injection, XSS and CSRF, and it addresses PCI 6.6. New SecureSphere 9.5 capabilities include:
Automated Profile Optimization - SecureSphere WAF can automatically detect and suggest profile adjustments to accommodate dynamic, Web 2.0 and RESTful Web applications without a need for manual trouble-shooting.
Streamlined Profile Management - SecureSphere simplifies the management of thousands of Web pages by focusing on Web pages with form fields and parameters, reducing the size of the application profile while still helping to secure the entire Web application.
JSON Support - SecureSphere augments its JSON support with enhanced validation of user input and identification of unusual application behavior to stop hackers who abuse Web 2.0 applications.
SecureSphere version 9.5 is expected to be available in June 2012. For more information please visit www.imperva.com
