Entercept embraces Apache
Server-level security provider, Entercept Security Technologies, announced it would include protection for the Apache Web Server running on the Solaris platform. Entercept identifies attacks and prevents unauthorized Apache server access. The technology evaluates requests to the server and operating system before they are processed. With Apache, it delivers a shielding function designed for Apache that prevents unauthorized or malicious use of the Web server. Entercept also delivers HTTP protection against attacks through a parsing process that checks the HTTP stream looking for malicious code. It also takes preventative action to block the attack. Entercept also protects Microsoft IIS Web Server and Windows NT and 2000 platforms, in addition to Solaris.
Entercept integrates with netForensics
Entercept Security Technologies recently announced it would support netForensics 2.3 ActiveEnvoy Security Information Management technology. NetForensics enables reporting, correlation and forensics. Entercept will integrate its console within the netForensics systems that enables viewing Entercept activity on a netForensics master console. Administrators get a single view of suspicious activity across servers, firewalls, intrusion detection systems and other security devices.
