NEW YORK -- Web application firewall vendor, Applicure Technologies Ltd, is gearing up to sign new partners as it announces its official channel launch. Highlighted in the recent SANS Institute Top-20 Security Risks report the security industry benchmark for prioritizing IT security threats Applicures technology protects against external and internal attacks on web applications.
For the first time ever, attacks on Web applications have been identified by the SANS Institute as the number one security threat. Applicure, which has been operating since 2004, recently established its North American operations and is now keen to build a strong relationship with the channel.
Applicures flagship software product - dotDefender - provides dedicated web application security that complements network protection (firewall, IPS/ IDS). This innovative website security software provides strong protection against SQL Injection, Cross-site scripting, Path Traversal, Defacement and many other application attacks. dotDefender is multi-platform, working on Apache, IIS, and ISA Server, with central management and reporting. Implemented as a software plug-in, it is rapidly deployed, and requires minimal maintenance, providing the best TCO in the industry.
Applicure also provides a free downloadable security monitor that identifies attempts to hack the website or application in real time. It allows companies to assess their exposure based on actual attacks, and prioritize their investment accordingly.
Applicures technology is well suited for any size of company and is a particularly strong fit for the mid-market sector which has the same security issues as larger enterprises but without the resources and budget to deal with them effectively. This means channel partners can target all their clients with the comprehensive, low TCO, high ROI web application security that Applicure offers and are likely to see significant opportunities with their mid-sized customers.
Carl Hartman, Director of North American Operations said, Applicure will select partners based on track record, years in business, industry expertise and proven commitment to their customers success. Business partners can work with Applicure to create a partnership that fits their business needs and goals, ranging from referrals to a full VAR relationship.
