Mykonos Brings Web App Security To Cloud

Mykonos Web Security now supports Websites and applications hosted on Amazon Web Services

BURLINGAME, Calif.– December 14, 2011 – Mykonos Software, the leading provider of Web Intrusion Prevention Systems (WIPS), today announced that its flagship product, Mykonos Web Security, now supports Websites and applications hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Mykonos support for AWS enables a company to extend its enterprise security capabilities to the cloud.

“Today’s enterprises are rushing to the cloud without understanding the security implications that come with it,” said David Koretz, president and CEO of Mykonos Software. “Mykonos is the first company to bring enterprise-class Web application security to the cloud.”

Mykonos Web Security uses deception to detect, confuse, slow down and prevent attackers in real-time—helping to keep Websites safe. Today’s announcement expands Mykonos Web Security deployment options from existing software and virtualized models that protect Web applications hosted within internal networks to a wider audience of cloud-based Web properties. Companies looking to protect their Web applications hosted within the Amazon EC2 environment can simply evaluate and deploy the Mykonos Web Security product using the Amazon Machine Image (AMI), which is available directly from Mykonos Software. For more information on Mykonos’ cloud security offering, please visit www.mykonossoftware.com.

Mykonos Software was recently awarded the 2011 Technology Innovation Award from The Wall Street Journal in the Information Security category and has been named a finalist for Rookie Company of the Year by SC Magazine.

About Mykonos Software

Mykonos is the smartest way to secure Websites and Web applications against hackers, fraud and theft. Its Web Intrusion Prevention System uses deception to detect, track, profile and prevent hackers in real-time. Unlike legacy signature-based approaches, Mykonos is the first technology that inserts thousands of detection points to proactively identify attackers before they do damage – without any false positives. Mykonos goes beyond the IP address to track the individual attacker, profile their behavior and deploy counter measures. With the Mykonos Web Security, administrators are liberated from writing rules, analyzing massive log files or monitoring another console. Mykonos neutralizes threats as they occur preventing the loss of data and saving companies millions of dollars from fraud or lost revenue.
