Breach Security announced the general availability of the ModSecurity version 2.0 open source web application firewall on a security appliance delivering the lowest cost commercial web application firewall available. Easy to deploy and manage, the ModSecurity Pro M1000 appliance includes the ModSecurity open source web application firewall, the most popular web application firewall with more than 10,000 organizations deployments worldwide. The M1000 is available now with a risk-free 30-day trial.
The M1000 provides security to meet the September 2006 update to the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Security Standards Council Data Security Standard which set a deadline of June 2008 for any organization gathering or storing credit card numbers to implement regular code scans or deploy a web application firewall. Web application firewalls deliver real-time visibility into the security of web applications, ensuring consistent security levels beyond code scanning and secure coding initiatives.
The M1000 includes the open source ModSecurity v2.0.4, a highly flexible web application firewall that can be used for a wide range of functions including web application monitoring, web intrusion detection and prevention, as well as “just in time” patching of known vulnerabilities. The appliance also includes a certified rule set for PCI compliance.
