Qualys today announced that it will release the beta of its new cloud WAF solution as an Amazon Machine Image (AMI) and as a VMware virtual image for on-premise deployments starting August 1. Qualys’ new WAF service is delivered through the multitenant, highly scalable QualysGuard Cloud Platform, designed to provide:
- Real-time application defense, blocking attacks against websites in real-time.
- Application hardening, minimizing application attack surfaces by providing a shield around coding defects, application framework flaws, web server bugs and loose configurations.
- Low-cost, automated service maintained and updated by Qualys’ security experts providing new defenses and features transparently to users and site visitors.
- A multitude of deployment options for distributed WAF protection points managed through a common, central policy administration and reporting interface with APIs for integration.
Qualys will showcase these new capabilities this week at Black Hat USA 2013 Briefings – booth #401 – on July 31-August 1. Read the full announcement.
