Challenges with securing your critical corporate applications

Here are the 6 key challenges faced by organizations to secure corporate applications:
  • Exposed and in the dark

    Being complex systems, corporate applications are inherently vulnerable. While platform vendors regularly release security patches, these are not systematically applied, for fear of impacting customized, business critical applications.

  • Web-enabled applications under attack

    Users conveniently access legacy applications via web browsers. That creates opportunities for hackers to identify and target backend servers, using SQL injections and cross-site scripting techniques, typically.

  • Man-in-the-browser

    The very same browser used to access corporate applications is more often used to surf vulnerable Web sites on the Internet. Hackers leverage server-side vulnerabilities to plant malware, steal identities and leak sensitive data.

  • Inside or outside the network?

    Even if your users are not supposed to connect from outside the corporate network, the challenge of configuring such complex applications often means they can. And so can attackers. Even internally, segregation of access is a must have for critical applications.

  • Measuring compliance, adjusting investments

    Demonstrating compliance with policy and regulations is a challenge. And it’s not enough, in spite of your best efforts, some attacks will go through. The ability to look back and perform a forensics analysis on successful attacks will help improve your defense strategy.

  • Scalable administration

    The ability to centrally enforce secure access to all your corporate applications is essential. You will need that if your organization decides to improve its ability to control how critical apps are used, enhance its ability to respond to new threats and changing user behaviors.

Benefits gained from using DenyAll to secure your corporate applications

DenyAll’s Next Generation Web Application Firewall and Vulnerability Scanners 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 are the most common benefits:
  • Reduce the attack surface

    DenyAll Vulnerability Manager helps identify assets, prioritize vulnerabilities, distribute remediation tasks to various team members and report on compliance with corporate policy and regulations. Knowing where you stand is the first step to providing a secure environment.

  • Prevent application-layer attacks

    DenyAll Web Application Firewall is reverse proxy based central point of access for all internal and external access requests to your corporate applications via Web interfaces. It will block attacks originating from both hackers and compromised accounts or devices.

  • Enforce authentication policy

    DenyAll Web Access Manager, an add-on to DenyAll WAF, is a central authentication service for all web applications, ensuring people authenticate using the appropriate method for each application, using simple or strong, two factor authentication, when needed.

  • Simplify security for users

    DenyAll Web Access Manager makes security easier for users by providing a single sign on mechanism for all web applications, including your corporate apps. 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 deny access if the risk is too high.

  • Improved control

    DenyAll Web Application Firewall can be used as a central point of control for all user accesses to web applications, both externally and internally. This helps demonstrate compliance with policy and is a great resource for forensics analysis, to figure out who  attacked the organization and how.
