INetU Enhances Managed Security Suite With Application Traffic Firewall

Critical Layer of Defense Simplifies PCI Compliance and Strengthens Application Protection

ALLENTOWN, PA--(Marketwired - Jun 27, 2013) -  INetU, the industry's experts in complex hosting and a global provider of business-centric managed cloud and application hosting, announced today that the INetU Application Traffic Firewall has been added to its Managed Security Suite. The Application Traffic Firewall joins the existing INetU Security Suite managed by a dedicated, always-on team of security professionals with over 15 years of experience in safeguarding business data.

The public availability of today's business applications opens the door for attacks. Classic Web Application Firewalls (WAFs) are critical to maintaining a safe, successful and compliant online presence. The INetU Application Traffic Firewall goes beyond classic WAFs by providing an additional layer of critical protection for businesses in that it thwarts attacks targeting application vulnerabilities; which is never addressed by standard firewalls. Upon detection of threat profiles that could be troublesome, The INetU Application Traffic Firewall can be configured to handle the situation based on the specific needs of the customer.

Core benefits of the INetU Application Traffic Firewall include:

  • Compliance Augmentation: INetU Application Traffic Firewall assists clients in meeting the requirements for SOX regulatory compliance, healthcare HIPAA/HITECH and payment processing PCI DSS standards.
  • Behavioral defense: The INetU Application Traffic Firewall automatically learns and adapts to the way applications work normally, and then blocks abnormal behavior.
  • Reporting dashboard: All activity is monitored and logged so businesses have a clear understanding of suspicious activity through the INetU Client Center.
  • Attacker Path Identification: The INetU Application Traffic Firewall is constantly collecting updates covering known attackers and new threat patterns, always adjusting to provide up-to-date protection.
  • Defense: Addresses SQL injection attacks, cross-site scripting and data theft
  • Fully Managed / Cost Effective: INetU manages the Application Traffic Firewall, along with all of its Managed Security Suite offerings and has priced these products to show a clear customer ROI and to promote adoption.

"The world needs to access your applications, but your business needs to ensure that users and data are safe," said Andrew Hodes, director of technology at INetU. "The INetU Application Traffic Firewall is the lock at your front door protecting this information against would-be attackers looking to exploit your applications as a way in."

Adding depth of defense to a security plan is common practice to help mitigate attack concerns. The INetU Application Traffic Firewall is the perfect way to achieve this depth, without any downtime or application reconfiguration. 

In addition to the INetU Application Traffic Firewall, the INetU Managed Security Suite offering includes:

  • Managed firewalls with VPN
