Challenges with securing your critical internet and cloud applications

Here are the top challenges faced by organizations to secure internet and cloud applications:
  • Dealing with Shadow IT

    How are you identifying, assessing and protecting the cloud applications, internal websites and web services your organization publishes and uses every day? Even if these currently run without your blessing, you will be responsible in case of a breach. You need to gain visibility and control of shadow IT to securely enable your business.

  • SaaS attacks

    Internet-facing sites and cloud-based applications like Office 365 and Google Docs represent great opportunities for hackers. SQL injections are one of the highest risks in SaaS applications, giving attackers potential access to backend databases, the ability to remotely execute commands, or in some circumstances the means to take control of the server hosting your applications.

  • Bot mitigation

    50% of global traffic originates from robots and approximately another 50% of that traffic comes from bad bots. While search engines crawling your websites is good for business, you need to prevent vulnerability scanners, automated exploit kits and other malicious bots from consuming your bandwidth, bringing your servers down or stealing your data.

  • Prevent identity theft

    Identities are the new perimeter in this mobile and open world. Stealing the key is often much easier than breaking the lock. And so hackers focus on users’ credentials, which are very easy to grab from unprotected web applications. Internet-facing sites and cloud applications are the first place they go looking for them.

  • User access control

    According to a Microsoft survey, employees use 17 cloud apps on average and workers in 91% of organizations use their personal accounts to access their company’s cloud storage services. To protect your assets and the Personally Identifiable Information of your users, it is a good idea to enforce your authentication policy while making security easier for people via a single sign on facility.

  • Security policy industrialization

    With the cloud growing four times faster than IT overall, industrializing security policies is a growing requirement, the only way to improve agility and reduce total cost of ownership. Your security strategy needs to mitigate the most significant risks and to ensure that the business value of your digital initiatives is realized quickly.

Benefits gained from using DenyAll to secure your internet & cloud applications

DenyAll’s Next Generation Web Application Firewall helps organizations control their environment, reduce their attack surface, block application-layer attacks and prevent legitimate users from misusing the rights granted to them. Here’s how:
  • Prevent application-layer attacks

    DenyAll Web Application Firewall is shared policy enforcement point for all access requests to your Internet-facing web sites and cloud applications. It will block attacks originating from malicious bots, hackers manually testing your organization’s defense and legal users misbehaving.

  • Malicious bot mitigation

    DenyAll Web Application Firewall  can detect and respond to legal yet malicious requests targeting the business logic of your websites, aiming at bringing them down or leaking data. Combined with DenyAll IP Reputation Service, it will focus on the traffic that really matters to your digital business.

  • Enforce authentication policy

    DenyAll Web Access Manager, an add-on to DenyAll WAF, is a central authentication service for all web applications, ensuring internal and external users authenticate using the appropriate method for each application, be it simple passwords or two factor authentication, as required.

  • Simplify security for users

    DenyAll Web Access Manager makes security easier for users by providing a single sign on mechanism for all Internet-facing and cloud applications. It learns and replays the authentication mechanism used by each application on behalf of users.

  • Adjust to user behavior

    DenyAll Web Application Firewall monitors user behavior in context to prevent attacks targeting the application logic. Combined with DenyAll WAM, it can ensure people are indeed who they pretend to be, by adjusting the authentication method, or denying access if the risk is too high.
