Perfecto Technologies Delivers AppShield for E-Business

Perfecto Technologies, a developer of
e-business security software introduced AppShield, a “plug and play” Internet
application security solution.

AppShield provides application-level protection against hacker attacks
without requiring
modifications to either existing applications or third party software (such
as web servers) and without delaying time-to-market, the company said.

Financial site Quote.com and PlanetRx.com are among the initial
customers.

Because it provides blanket protection against application-level
vulnerabilities, AppShield allows e-business application developers to focus
their attention on functionality and performance rather than the time
consuming process of coding for
security, the company said.

Developers can now safely use time saving, but
potentially dangerous programming techniques, such as hidden fields and
cookies, without compromising security.

In addition, AppShield provides protection against security bugs found in
third party applications and code (such as Web servers, scripts and CGIs).

AppShield uses two of Perfecto’s core technologies: the Policy Recognition
Engine and Adaptive Reduction Technology.

Appshield dynamically recognizes
the intended application security policy by analyzing each outbound HTML page
on-the-fly. It then enforces compliance with the policy for each incoming
HTTP request.

AppShield is available for both the Sun Solaris and Microsoft Windows NT
platforms. Price points were not disclosed.
