ServerDefender VPís availability on AWS addresses security concerns when using cloud hosting for sites and applications. Unlike traditional hardware Web application firewalls, ServerDefender VP is a host-based software Web application firewall. This makes it ideal for installation directly on a cloud instance to analyze traffic before requests can hit a site. As a Web application firewall, ServerDefender VP can help address PCI-DSS compliance and HIPAA compliance.
KEY SECURITY FEATURES
Advanced Security Policy - ServerDefender VP does not rely on a list of attack signatures to identify and block attacks. Rather, it uses rules-based policies and a combination of black and white lists to detect and stop known and unknown zero day threats.
Configurable Security Settings - Granular controls allow for a highly-customizable security profile. ServerDefender VP provides protection from the OWASP Top 10 Web Threats, as well as controls for input validation, IP blocking, error throttling, bot policy, resource management, and more.
Traffic monitoring and interrogation - Monitors all requests and interrogates them for malicious activity. ServerDefender VPís sessionization tracks and scores usersí behavior as they traverse the site. Serious offenses are weighted more heavily than less serious offenses.
Interactive Log Viewer - The LogViewer is the monitoring hub for investigating, taking action against, and visualizing threats hitting your site. With the LogViewer tool, users can easily sort, filter, and interact with threats in real-time to determine their authenticity and block IPs to prevent further attacks, or create exceptions to allow legitimate users to pass.
