Imperva announced the availability of SecureSphere 9.0 and introduced ThreatRadar Fraud Prevention Services and defined a new Web security architecture that not only encompasses Web applications, Web server infrastructure and application data in databases, but also extends to Web application users.
ThreatRadar Fraud Prevention empowers organizations to quickly and easily mitigate malware-driven fraud. It integrates with Trusteer Pinpoint, a transparent solution that detects client devices infected with malware.
The new ThreatRadar service for the SecureSphere Web Application Firewall:
- Helps businesses reduce fraud mitigation costs and customer turnover, and satisfy regulatory requirements such as FFIEC compliance.
- Accelerates time-to-security by adding fraud detection without requiring Web application changes.
- Enhances security efficacy by supporting correlation of fraud detection with Web application firewall policies.
- Decouples fraud prevention from Web application business logic; adjusts fraud policies and actions from the SecureSphere Web user interface.
- Provides detailed security alerts and graphical reports that allow fraud analysts to investigate suspicious activity.
“Organizations with high-risk applications and sensitive customer data must look for vendors and technology that can fend off increasingly sophisticated and unpredictable attacks,” explained Avivah Litan, Gartner VP Distinguished Analyst.
“The marriage of Web application firewalls with advanced fraud prevention is an important step towards increasing the integrity of online transactions,” said Mickey Boodaei, CEO of Trusteer. “As attack sophistication increases, we believe that security teams will need the ability to detect and correlate malware activity with Web application traffic to bolster their defenses, and that’s where Trusteer’s partnership with Imperva will play a significant role.”
With version 9.0 of the SecureSphere Web Application Firewall, Imperva has introduced new defenses that help stop bots and automated attacks. SecureSphere anti-automation technology differentiates between bots and legitimate users, making it easy to block undesirable activity.
Advanced application DDoS policies use innovative detection techniques to stop DDoS attacks, and customizable DDoS policy templates simplify administration. Finally, new site scraping policies help safeguard intellectual property and thwart competitive espionage.
