eEye Digital Security Releases Attack Prevention Solution for Microsoft IIS Web Servers
Enterprise-level Functionality and Centralized Policy Management added to eEye’s SecureIISÃ¢â€ž? Application Firewall
(Aliso Viejo, CA; Geneva, Switzerland) – eEye Digital Security, a leading provider of network security software products, has released SecureIIS Application Firewall version 2.0. Developed as the first-ever application specific protection software, SecureIIS operates within Microsoft’s Internet Information Services (IIS) architecture to actively inspect all incoming and outgoing web server traffic. SecureIIS 2.0 has been configured to support the enterprise market with enhanced features and capabilities including centralized policy and events management.
SecureIIS 2.0 is the only product that integrates with IIS to truly protect customers with web servers using Microsoft® Windows NT® 4.0, Windows® 2000, or Windows XP. Because of eEye’s extensive knowledge of the many ways in which IIS servers can be attacked or compromised, SecureIIS has built-in artificial intelligence capabilities to completely shield IIS servers from malicious hacker attacks.
The product enhancements found in SecureIIS 2.0, allow for better deployment at the enterprise level. Specifically, central policy management has been added to manage settings for any number of machines from a single, central location. Once a policy is configured and exported from the central machine, other machines can be set to automatically import the policy and any future changes made to it.
“We at eEye came to the conclusion last year that there has to be a better way to manage the security of IIS other than the current approach of reactive patch management,” stated Firas Raouf, Chief Operating Officer at eEye Digital Security. “With SecureIIS the Microsoft IIS platform becomes the most secure platform on the market.”
SecureIIS is the only IIS specific application firewall which protects against entire classes of attacks, including: buffer overflow; parser evasion; directory traversal; general exploitation; high-bit shellcode; RFC compliancy, and others.
