Web Application Protection
With the volume of infrastructure patches issued, the regularity of updates to applications and the increasing complexity of application components, maintaining a secure Web application through programming and system administration alone is nearly impossible.
The best way to secure the application environment is with Web application security products that are designed to monitor and secure traffic before it can reach the critical back-end infrastructure. By authorizing messages to assure their validity, these products prevent hackers from manipulating the application to cause damage or steal information. As Web application attacks have become by far the most common and typically most damaging threats, this level of protection is now a critical element to comprehensive enterprise security.
