Server Security Applicure announced today the release of dotDefender 2.0 for Solaris and Linux Web servers. dotDefender secures websites against a broad range of HTTP-based attacks, including Session attacks (e.g. Denial of Service, Session Hijacking), Web application attacks (e.g. SQL injection, Cross-site scripting, and known attack signatures), as well as requests originating from known attack sources (e.g. spammer bots and compromised servers).

dotDefender 2.0, a powerful security software solution for web server and database, protects against a broad range of attacks, including: Denial of Service, SQL Injection, Cross-site Scripting, Cookie Tampering, Path Traversal, Probes, Session Hijacking and known attack sources.

Applicure Technologies, a pioneering provider of advanced application security solutions for the Web environment, announced today the release of dotDefender 2.0 - an advanced security solution that analyzes incoming HTTP requests and blocks embedded attacks from penetrating the Web environment. dotDefender 2.0 is a cost-effective, software-based solution that deploys quickly on the Web host with a preconfigured, automatically updated rule set that enables it to protect the Web environment immediately upon installation with virtually no administrator intervention.

Based on Applicure’s groundbreaking TotalShield technology, dotDefender resides on the Web server, where it intercepts and analyzes incoming HTTP requests: those that are found to violate the defined rules are blocked – ensuring that malicious attacks seeking to compromise mission-critical Web applications or data assets are denied entry into the Web environment.

“Whether an organization is small, medium, or large, the Web has become an indispensable component of its business IT infrastructure – and protecting the corporate Web environment from increasingly frequent attacks has become a mission-critical imperative?, says Omer Golan, VP Marketing and Business Development at Applicure. “At the same time, the complexity and ineffectiveness of existing solutions have left administrators frustrated. What is required is solid security for organizations of any size, which at the same time is simple enough that it can be implemented as a turnkey solution. With dotDefender 2.0, the solution is now available.?

dotDefender 2.0 supports Apache, IIS, and Sun Java System (iPlanet) Web servers and many Linux based Operating Systems, including RPM based Linux, Debian, JBoss, Fedora and FreeBSD. A 30-day free evaluation period version is available for download at:

dotDefender 2.0 is a high-end security solution that completes existing security suites of every Web server. It can be easily integrated with TotalShield software, for a full scale protection of Web servers and databases.
