Radware Introduces Industry’s First Hybrid Cloud Based Web Application Firewall Service

Radware’s new Hybrid Cloud WAF Service is an industry first that provides a fully managed enterprise grade WAF that protects both on-premise and cloud-based applications, using a single technology solution. Unlike existing WAF solutions that integrate dual technologies, which results in a gap between protection coverage and quality, Radware’s single technology approach makes migrating applications to the cloud safer and secure.    

“It’s not uncommon for enterprises to distribute their applications both on-premise and in-the-cloud. In addition, we see enterprises employ multiple cloud vendors to host various aspects of their infrastructure. However, having a disparate network infrastructure adds a level of complexity when trying to protect your web applications,” says Carl Herberger, vice president of security solutions for Radware. “We have taken actionable steps to provide enterprise with a unified hybrid solution against web-based attacks regardless if protection is needed on-premise or in the cloud and provide better security when moving applications to the cloud as well as ease of security policy orchestration and automation.”

In addition to protection from various web attacks, Radware’s Hybrid Cloud WAF can also defend and mitigate a wide range of DDoS attacks through its always-on DDoS attack protection, and provide comprehensive detection and mitigation of attacks with minimal false positives and no impact on legitimate traffic.

“When there is no technical integration between on-premise and cloud WAF technologies, organisations are faced with poor quality of detection resulting in poor mitigation options,” says Jon Oltsik, senior principal analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group. “Radware’s Hybrid Cloud WAF Service can help bridge this gap by integrating its on-premise devices and WAF technologies with cloud-based coverage to deliver a comprehensive detection and mitigation solution.”

The Hybrid Cloud WAF Service also provides full coverage from all of OWASP’s Top 10 security risks and is backed by Radware’s Emergency Response Team – a dedicated group of security experts that can actively monitor and mitigate attacks in real time.

New Tool Launched to Improve Security Analytics and Accelerate Incident Response

Lancope, Inc., a leader in network visibility and security intelligence, today unveiled its new ProxyWatch™ solution for enhanced security context at RSA Conference 2015. A key component of the StealthWatch® System 6.7 release, the ProxyWatch solution extends network visibility and provides more in-depth insight for enhanced threat detection, incident response and forensics. 

“Traditionally, traffic on either side of a web proxy is not tied together, and communications that traverse a proxy server appear as two separate conversations,” said Kerry Armistead, vice president of product management for Lancope. “This hinders network and security troubleshooting by associating an incident with the proxy address instead of the actual address causing the issue. In our continuous efforts to improve the way enterprises visualise and defend their networks, Lancope’s new ProxyWatch solution provides a key new layer of security awareness for faster, more precise threat protection.”

When deployed with the StealthWatch System, the ProxyWatch solution enables organisations to see the translated address associated with the other side of a proxy conversation, enhancing organisations’ ability to effectively pinpoint the source of threats and expedite Mean Time to Know (MTTK). The solution ingests proxy records and associates them with flow records, delivering the user, application and URL information for each flow to enable powerful, context-aware security analytics.

With the ProxyWatch solution, security analysts can see exactly who within their organisation went to a specific web site, and can also evaluate the URL data against Lancope’s StealthWatch Labs Intelligence Center (SLIC) Threat Feed to determine whether the site was malicious. ProxyWatch users can also see when a session began and ended and how much data was transferred between the host and destination address.

“Network visibility is a critical piece of the security puzzle, but it is even more effective when combined with contextual data,” added Armistead. “By providing visibility into proxy conversations, and also delivering important details such as user data, the ProxyWatch solution can greatly enhance an organisation’s ability to thwart sophisticated attacks and avoid damaging data breaches.”

Lancope has long been dedicated to providing in-depth network insight and security intelligence for large, distributed networks. Hundreds of enterprises around the world rely on Lancope and the StealthWatch System to collect and analyse massive amounts of security data for faster, more informed threat detection and investigation. By continuously monitoring communications inside the network, Lancope can detect both sophisticated external attacks that bypass perimeter defenses as well as stealthy insider threats.

The Lancope ProxyWatch solution will be available in May 2015 for Blue Coat, Squid, Cisco and McAfee proxy servers as part of the StealthWatch System 6.7 release.* Lancope is showcasing the solution this week at RSA Conference Booth #N4211. Those interested should stop by the booth or contact

Digital Forensics Magazine Survey on International Standards

Digital Forensics Magazine Conduct Survey on International Standards
Digital Forensics Magazine, one of the most comprehensive sources of IT forensics news and articles, today announced it published an online survey to explore training within the digital forensics sector...

As part of the Training & Education theme for Issue 5 Digital Forensics Magazine is carrying out a global survey. The survey asks digital forensic practitioners around the world to complete the survey with a view to ascertain the level of qualifications held.

The survey investigates the thoughts of practitioners on what they believe are the core competencies required of a digital forensics practitioner. They are also asking what knowledge would be required if there were practitioners graded at basic, intermediate and advanced levels.

Tony Campbell, one of the DFM publishing team said, “By asking the practitioners opinions with regard to international standards on training we hope to inform the debate going on in a number of forums on this topic.

The survey will be open over the next 3 months and we are encouraging all parties with a vested interest in the subject to take the survey to help us all understand the current status of training and education in Digital Forensics and shape the future. This is your profession, help us inform and guide those that are setting standards and making decisions about our profession. “

Readers are urged to take the 3 minute survey today at www.surveymonkey.com/s/dfm to make sure their thoughts and opinions are captured.

A summary of the results will be released in forthcoming monthly newsletters available to Digital Forensics Magazine newsletter subscribers, and the main findings will form the basis of an article in the main magazine published later this year.
