Applicure Technologies had announced dotDefender 2.7 for IIS. 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.
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.
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.
