SANS - Survey on application security programs

Application security firm Deny All launched in the UK today in a major European expansion programme that will see it move into Germany and Italy next year.

The French security software outfit said that the growth in web applications is driving demand for its technology. Deny All's rWeb application firewall inspects traffic before it reaches application servers, guarding against threats such as SQL injection and buffer overflow attacks.

Firewall vendors, such as Check Point and Netscreen, are adding application intelligence features to their firewalls. Philippe Fauchay, international business development director of Deny All, said that its products are tuned to protect applications and so better able to protect corporates than firewalls alone.

Deny All's rWeb is marketed as a complement to firewalls and intrusion detection systems. The technology uses a mixture of blacklist rules, white lists (for known good applications) and stateful tracking to protect systems.

Deny All was established as a division within Societe Generale, the bank, three years ago before becoming an independent company this year. Its expansion is been financed by a €4m injection from Truffle Venture and Credit Lyonnais. Competitors include Sanctum which was recently acquired by Watchfire, and Israeli firm Kavado. Deny All currently employs 35 people and expects to record sales of €3m this year (2003: €2.2m). ®
