Penta Security Patents New Technology for detecting and blocking Web Application Attacks

Penta Security Systems has been granted a patent in Japan for its unique algorithm-based analytical engine for detecting and blocking web application attacks. This technology enables Penta Security’s web application firewall, WAPPLES, to provide a high level of defense against complex web application attacks.

Penta Security Systems, Inc., a leading provider of Application Security Solutions in both Japan and South Korea, announced today that the Japan Patent Office on December/28/2011 granted Penta Security a patent for its unique method of detecting attacks targeting web applications. WAPPLES, the web application firewall product of Penta Security, utilizes this method to analyze and determine whether or not Internet traffic constitutes a threat to the web applications under its protection, and to defend against such threats intelligently and accurately. Currently, WAPPLES is the only product in Japan holding a patent pertaining to methods of detecting web attacks.

“This one-of-a-kind patented technology utilizes analytical algorithms, rather than the old, maintenance-intensive system of pattern matching that typically generates many false positive attack alerts. With this new technology, WAPPLES has been able to achieve a near-zero false positive rate while lowering system maintenance costs, as administrators no longer need to add patterns manually on a daily basis. Web attack detection and response through the logic analysis of this patented technology have made WAPPLES the new paradigm of web application security,” said John Kirch, Vice President of Penta Security.

WAPPLES can detect complex web attacks like SQL injection, which caused several serious incidents of personal information leakage last year. The patented technology can serve to prevent critical web attacks including SQL injection, but can also help save bandwidth, up to 50 percent, by eliminating malicious web traffics.

“WAPPLES is a commercially proven and tested solution with more than 1,100 customers, including government, SMBs and Large Enterprises; our success is based on our patented technology and our relentless commitment to satisfying our clients’ needs,” said John Kirch. “Recent cyber attacks in Japan have clearly demonstrated the importance and value-add that WAF can contribute in detecting and protecting organizations from application-layer cyber attacks. Enabling Japanese organizations and their clients worldwide to safely sell and buy Japanese products/services could make a tremendous contribution to enhancing Japan's economic status”.
