This article features the ScanDo Web application scanner and InterDo Web application firewall products from Kavado. The solutions are for creating an integrated security process throughout the development, deployment, and maintenance of Web applications. The integrated security suite detects and protects privileged or regulated data from both internal and external threats. One uses the application scanner to perform risk assessments by identifying vulnerabilities in applications and the exposure of privileged information. Kavado's technology uses the intelligence derived from the scanning process to generate optimized, application-specific security policies for the InterDo Web application firewall. InterDo validates and secures inbound and outbound traffic to prevent transmission of privileged information or exploitation of the vulnerabilities to steal, delete, or modify critical data. The new versions combine to provide out-of-the-box detection and protection of things like major credit cards and Social Security numbers, while InterDo supports customer-defined patterns to secure additional data such as account numbers and patient record numbers. A new feature ensures that all traffic to the Web server must go through the InterDo Web application firewall. This provides added protection against economic attacks by hackers inside an organization, who may have direct network access to the Web server. Enterprises can now consolidate all scan results and InterDo logs to a centralized database for forensic analysis and compliance reporting.
