Kavado has launched a distributed web applications and services threat management system (TMS) for enterprises.
The Defiance TMS system provides scalable intrusion detection and prevention for critical data across the business without impacting on data traffic flow. The system is seen as an alternative to “point-based” systems that just protect a particular server or gateway.
“Balancing business needs and operational performance against information security requirements is a continuous challenge for enterprises," said Jim Slaby, an analyst at Yankee Group.
"Kavado’s Defiance TMS brings some unique capabilities to the intrusion detection and prevention product segment that can help companies more effectively detect, alert, and block attacks without adversely affecting operations,” Slaby said.
Vikram Desai, Kavado chief executive officer, said, “Since hacker attacks can occur at multiple points across an enterprise, Defiance TMS takes web application security a major step beyond today’s point application firewall solutions.”
Defiance TMS comprises four major components. Defiance Monitor is a web application intrusion detection system (IDS), Defiance Gateway is a web application intrusion prevention system (IPS), Defiance Management Server is a centralised repository of web application security data and logs, and Defiance Security Console is a unified administration, management, reporting and forensics platform.
Pricing for the complete Defiance TMS solution starts at £29,500.
