Radware Introduces APSolute Immunity Security Initiative

Radware, a provider of integrated application delivery solutions for business-smart networking, has introduced its APSolute Immunity security initiative, a new strategic approach that maintains business continuity by protecting the applications infrastructure against existing and emerging network based threats that cannot be detected by traditional IPS such as: application misuse threats, SSL attacks and VoIP service misuse.

The company said that, coupled with its DefensePro security solution, this umbrella security strategy allows organizations to move beyond static intrusion prevention systems by mitigating attacks that use legitimate application services for malicious activity.

With the introduction of the APSolute Immunity initiative, Radware also offers an upgraded DefensePro solution, version 4.10. This enhanced offering is expected 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.

Avi Chesla, vice-president of security at Radware, said: "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."
