RSA 2018: Signal Sciences delivers multi-cloud strategies to unify web application security for businesses



Signal Sciences announced on Wednesday that its Web Protection Platform, the company’s unique next-gen web application firewall (WAF) and runtime application self-protection (RASP) solution, is available in multi-cloud environments.

Businesses can now protect their most critical web applications from real attacks and threat scenarios on their choice of cloud provider, including Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform and Amazon Web Services (AWS)—under one unified management system.

Signal Sciences works across any architecture—any cloud, any container, any PaaS and any IaaS. Signal Sciences provides broad coverage against real threats and attack scenarios as well as integrations into DevOps tools that enable engineering and operations teams to share security responsibility. Signal Sciences software can be deployed as a next-gen WAF, RASP or reverse proxy for comprehensive web application coverage.

More than 85 percent of enterprises are predicted to commit to multi-cloud architectures this year, according to IDC. As multi-cloud adoption continues to witness explosive growth, this has massive implications on needing security solutions that are infrastructure-agnostic and deployable in any application stack while integrating with current workflows and operations processes. The ability to unify application security without increasing overhead and maintenance support will become increasingly vital.

Signal Sciences deploys in minutes and supports all modern architectures without impacting performance, providing seamless application security, visibility and scalability to operations, development and security teams. Now available in the major cloud marketplaces, the solution can be deployed across AWS, Google and Microsoft cloud infrastructures to provide immediate protection from any attack with integrations into any DevOps toolchain. This includes blocking OWASP Top 10 vulnerabilities such as SQLi and XSS as well as account takeovers, brute force attacks, bad bots and application abuse and misuse instantly without the need to tune any rules.

“The main challenge for cloud customers is getting protection for their applications across providers and on premises without spending time tuning rules. With point solutions and legacy WAFs, rules have to be tuned for each application that sits behind the cloud WAF instance, resulting in a nightmare scenario where hundreds of hours of rule-tuning is needed just to gain basic OWASP Top 10 protection,” said Zane Lackey, CSO and co-founder of Signal Sciences.

“Signal Sciences simplifies this process with support across all platforms for all apps without requiring tuning, learning, or manually adjusting false positives. This enables Signal Sciences customers to gain the quickest ROI of any web application security solution.”
