Securing Your Web Applications
The daily discovery of new web vulnerabilities and attacks confirms that web applications are not secure. Even with expensive audits and time-consuming fixes, an organization’s security team may not be aware of all the holes in the company’s applications.
Vulnerabilities in the web infrastructure can appear when new features are introduced to applications. Even if applications written by a company’s Information Systems team are almost perfect, one must still consider the security issues which can occur when running third-party applications. And since building security into application code requires constant revisions, breaches can creep in when security fixes are implemented by programmers.
In addition, Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS) -- a standard developed by the major credit card companies as a guideline to help organizations that process card payments prevent credit card fraud, hacking and various other security issues -- is now a mandatory compliance which a Web application firewall addresses.

Comprehensive Web Application Threat Mitigation
Companies are searching for a single solution that has comprehensive protection abilities, does not cause costly redesign of applications, does not require time-consuming manual configuration or disrupt availability of applications to users. The solution must also provide regulatory compliance in reporting and must always be “on” to accommodate today’s 24 x7 society.
Radware’s AppWallis an advanced Web application firewall securing Web applications and enabling PCI compliance. AppWall incorporates advanced, patent-protected Web application security filtering technologies to seamlessly detect threats, block attacks and report events.
Maximum Web Application Threat Mitigation through Negative and Positive Security Models
AppWall supports a negative security model, ensuring that all risky Web traffic is blocked, including inspection of sensitive fields that can be defined using custom patterns such as Social Security numbers or credit card numbers. AppWall also employs a positive security model, guaranteeing that only Web traffic that complies with Web application behavior is passed through while all other traffic is blocked, without requiring continuous updates of new attack signatures.
Instant Protection with Out-of-the-Box Security Policies
AppWall’s out-of-the-box security policies address major threat categories and provide instant protection, allowing the enterprise to deploy and secure new Web applications within hours. AppWall policies are defined based on the unique structure, characteristics, and vulnerabilities of third-party or internally developed applications. Policies developed for one deployment can be quickly replicated for other AppWall instances in other locations.
Fine Grain Security Policies Enable Flexible Deployment
AppWall enables the user to define highly granular policies and to easily refine security policies for each application, down to the page or the parameter level. This provides the flexibility to tailor the level of security based on both the needs of the business and the level of risk. This allows for precise security coverage and full enforcement while minimizing false positives.
