In the recent years, web applications are the number one source of vulnerabilities targeted by Hackers. The fact is, hackers are constantly probing the Web for vulnerabilities. Although traditionally companies have used intrusion detection and prevention systems which monitor the network in general, there is now a widespread use of Web Application Firewalls as a security solution that monitors and protects only web applications. A web application is a software application that is accessed over the Internet using HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP). In a typical web application a client, such as a browser, interacts with a web server by exchanging a series of messages that are made up of HTTP requests and responses. An attacker often exploits vulnerabilities that exist in a web application to launch attacks. DotDefender is a web application security solution (a Web Application Firewall, or WAF) that offers strong, proactive security for websites and web applications. DotDefender can handle .NET Security issues. DotDefender provides great application security, flexible integration & management tools, automatic deployment and simple maintenance - which saves everyone valuable time.
