Breach Security's ModSecurity(TM) Open Source Web Application Firewall Software Selected as Top Application Security Tool at App

CARLSBAD, Calif., Dec. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Breach Security, Inc., the leader in web application security, today announced that the ModSecurity open source web application firewall was awarded the top application security-specific tool at the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) & Web Application Security Consortium (WASC) AppSec 2007 in San Jose, California, November 12-15, 2007.

Additionally, ModSecurity was selected as the number two open source security tool from the results of an AppSec 2007 conference attendee survey. ModSecurity is the most widely deployed web application firewall in the world with over 10,000 deployments.

"OWASP members share a vision of a software market where people have reason to trust the software they use. We're happy to provide a little support to the dedicated open source researchers that are making positive contributions in that direction," said Jeff Williams, CEO of Aspect Security, Inc. and volunteer Chair of the OWASP Foundation.

As an open source application, ModSecurity is 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 commercial version available from Breach Security can also provide all-important compliance with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS).

"It is a testimonial to the functionality and flexibility of ModSecurity to be selected by the user community at AppSec 2007 as a top open source and security specific tool for web application protection," said Marc Shinbrood, CEO of Breach Security. "Being the largest deployed web application firewall in the world speaks to the power and effectiveness of this open source product. The established ModSecurity web application firewall protects against a wide range of application-layer attacks. Our commercial version helps with PCI compliance and regulatory standards for organizations worldwide."

Capabilities of the open source ModSecurity software include: -- Session Management: ModSecurity can track and monitor user sessions providing protection against session hijacking and support for session-based anomaly detection. -- Events correlation: enables detection of attacks spanning multiple requests such as brute force and Denial-of-Service attacks, as well as attack reconnaissance. This enables ModSecurity to block hackers before they can launch a significant attack. -- Enhanced Analysis Engine: more granular rules facilities provide focused analysis of specific HTTP components, such as only searching for a signature in response headers. -- XML Content Analysis: ModSecurity supports analyzing XML and can be configured to protect Web Services. -- Community console: collects logs and alerts from any number of remote sensors in real time. The user interface provides support for sensor, alert, and transaction management.

Open source ModSecurity can be used embedded into the Apache(TM) web server, or standalone, with the ability to protect multiple web servers of any type.

Breach Security also offers the award-winning ModSecurity open source firewall as a commercial product, the ModSecurity Pro M1100 web application firewall appliance. Providing out-of-the-box security for web applications, the ModSecurity Pro M1100 features pre-packaged rule sets that prevent information leakage and assist organizations with compliance efforts such as the PCI DSS. The standard sets 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. The commercial version also includes a Management Console that allows for the consolidation, management and viewing of application security events across multiple ModSecurity instances.
