Enterprise-grade load balancer and web application firewall in one software instance
San Francisco, California (PRWEB) October 29, 2015
Wallarm, Inc., a leading provider of cutting-edge web application security solutions, today released a new version of the Wallarm platform focused on extended support for NGINX Plus, the commercial version of NGINX’s open source-based application delivery platform. By working with NGINX Plus, Wallarm allows enterprises to be more secure against sophisticated attacks on their web assets — even when application code is shipped several times a day. This is accomplished by use of sophisticated machine learning techniques applied to massive data sets to learn application structure from traffic and adapt security rules to each version of it.
26% of data breaches in 2014 targeted Web apps which represents the most common type of security incident for companies. The problem is getting even worse for those dynamic companies who use continuous integration and deploy new code almost every day, dramatically increasing the risk of introducing new vulnerabilities within that code. This is where traditional security solutions often fail, requiring cumbersome manual reconfiguration with each update.
“We are not just protecting web applications — we are eager to provide every company with the most effective web application security possible,” said Ivan Novikov, CEO at Wallarm Inc. “The advantages provided by the Wallarm will allow all the NGINX users not only to keep hackers at bay, but also to simplify security management and to ensure business continuity even for large enterprises.”
Wallarm’s newest version seamlessly integrates with customer’s IT infrastructure like a regular NGINX reverse-proxy server. Its implementation allows enterprises to enhance the security level of any business using NGINX without the need for additional software installation. Wallarm’s SaaS-based NGINX Plus solution is available as a virtual appliance (VMware image) or as package for Debian, Ubuntu or CentOS starting at $1000 for a single filtering node per month.
“NGINX provides leading-edge developers, system admins and IT architects with the control, performance and security tools to make the modern Web work for every digital business. In line with that objective, this joint solution with Wallarm provides organizations with highly effective enterprise-grade load balancers and web application firewalls in one scalable software instance,” said Paul Oh, Head of Business Development at NGINX Inc.
NGINX Plus provides customers with additional features such as; a range of load-balancing instruments, methods that allow upholding session persistence, health-checking mechanisms and an advanced monitoring interface. New and extended features in NGINX Plus R7, which was just released in September 2015, help improve the security and reliability of enterprise applications.
NGINX and NGINX Plus together power 140 million sites worldwide, including web 2.0 and ecommerce companies that demand high performance such as CloudFlare, Airbnb, Pinterest, GitHub, Hulu, WordPress and Zappos.com.
