About BreachGate WebDefend

Organizations using only network firewalls and intrusion detection appliances, which have restricted their existing network security at the perimeter, are not adequately protected against new Web-based threats.

The BreachGate WebDefend appliance is engineered to protect the next-generation of Web applications. BreachGate WebDefend automatically builds and maintains targeted application security that is used to validate all communication with the Web application. Traffic that does not match the application’s profile is routed through collaborative detection engines that provide the security context for anomalous traffic to determine if a real attack is taking place, and to take appropriate actions.

WebDefend’s ExitControlâ„? technology monitors outgoing responses from Web applications and employs BreachMarksâ„?, or patterns used to detect content-critical data, such as credit cards and social security numbers, from leaving the corporate network. The BreachGate WebDefend appliance is an ideal addition to B2B and B2C Internet security.
