hyperguard to Integrate With the McAfee Web Gateway for Complete Inbound and Outbound Protection at the Web Layer

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/15/11 -- art of defence, a leading distributed Web application firewall (dWAF) provider, today announced that it has joined the McAfee® Security Innovation Alliance™ (SIA) partner program. The McAfee SIA program promotes the world's leading security innovations and provides customers with comprehensive solutions that extend beyond the core McAfee offerings. art of defence works with McAfee to integrate its Web application firewall (dWAF) solution, hyperguard™, with the market-leading McAfee® Web Gateway, enabling customers to protect clients and servers against inbound and outbound attacks at the application layer.

This alliance will bring together McAfee Web Gateway's content scanning and malware detection features with hyperguard's comprehensive web application attack detection and protection capabilities. Existing McAfee customers will benefit from a complete -- inbound and outbound --security solution for their web infrastructure to protect their web applications. Common customer deployments include the protection of e-commerce and online banking websites to facilitate PCI compliance, and the protection of web portals such as Microsoft SharePoint, Outlook Web Access (OWA), and SAP among others.

Key Facts:

  • Existing McAfee customers will be able to install the hyperguard software plug-in to activate web application attack detection and protection features. The joint solution will expand Web security from the network to the application layer. Mutual customers will also be able to take advantage of virtual patching, and as a result, will be able to mitigate website vulnerabilities quickly, limiting exposure to exploits.

  • Customers will be able to add security features beyond traditional WAF protection, including high-level proactive security features. For instance, customers will be able to implement session-specific encrypted URLs, and as a result, users will only be able to access the entry point pages or the main page directly.

  • The McAfee Web Gateway is the leading anti-malware solution for Web 2.0 threats, capable of analyzing the nature and intent of all content and code entering the network via requested Web pages, providing immediate protection against malware and other hidden threats.

Supporting Quotes:

  • "Our customers face growing challenges to secure their networks and data and maintain compliance," said Ed Barry, vice president of the McAfee Security Innovation Alliance. "We are pleased to be working with art of defence and their hyperguard solution. When coupled with McAfee Web Gateway, the dWAF solution will help extend optimal security to our mutual customers."

  • "Comprehensive security at the web layer -- inbound and outbound -- is a major concern for companies," said Georg Hess, CEO and co-founder, art of defence. "When our WAF solution is integrated with the McAfee Web Gateway, it will provide joint customers with the technology to detect and protect against application layer attacks. This allows for complete inbound and outbound protection at the Web layer, defending applications such as Web portals and services."
