dWAF as SaaS available through AWS
Posted by hyperguard on November 10, 2009
Today we announced hyperguard SaaS—the industry’s first dWAF as a SaaS through Amazon Web Services (AWS). AWS customers or solution providers can protect applications by applying hyperguard SaaS either as software plug-in to an existing web server Amazon Machine Image (AMI), or by using AoD’s custom AMI. The solution solves the limitations of traditional WAFs being forced to secure cloud applications, which they weren’t specifically designed for.
It is highly scalable and ideal for virtualized resources—AoD hosts the resource-heavy pieces of the dWAF on Amazon EC2 and leaves just a small footprint on the customer’s AMI. Therefore, hyperguard scales simply with the number of web server AMIs that run the customer’s application being protected without a need to purchase additional AMIs. This allows customers to pay on a use-case basis and avoid investing in intensive solutions.
hyperguard SaaS provides web application security monitoring, detection-only and protection modes. For additional information or to test the service for free go to http://aws.artofdefence.com
