Port80 Software Releases ServerDefender VP Web Application Firewall for Amazon Web Services

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) August 22, 2013

Port80 Software’s launch marks the first Web application firewall built for Windows Servers on AWS. The advanced ServerDefender VP Web application firewall comes on Windows Server 2008 and 2012 instances and is available to launch from the AWS Marketplace. This advancement provides a more secure way to host apps on Microsoft IIS in the cloud.

ServerDefender VPs availability on AWS addresses security concerns when using cloud hosting for sites and applications. Unlike traditional hardware Web application firewalls, ServerDefender VP is a host-based software Web application firewall. This makes it ideal for installation directly on a cloud instance to analyze traffic before requests can hit a site. As a Web application firewall, ServerDefender VP can help address PCI-DSS compliance and HIPAA compliance.

Port80 Software has been building security software for Microsoft IIS since 2002. Its portfolio of Web security products include ServerDefender VP, ServerMask, and LinkDeny.


Advanced Security Policy – ServerDefender VP does not rely on a list of attack signatures to identify and block attacks. Rather, it uses rules-based policies and a combination of black and white lists to detect and stop known and unknown zero day threats.

Configurable Security Settings – Granular controls allow for a highly-customizable security profile. ServerDefender VP provides protection from the OWASP Top 10 Web Threats, as well as controls for input validation, IP blocking, error throttling, bot policy, resource management, and more.

Traffic monitoring and interrogation – Monitors all requests and interrogates them for malicious activity. ServerDefender VPs sessionization tracks and scores users behavior as they traverse the site. Serious offenses are weighted more heavily than less serious offenses.

Interactive Log Viewer – The LogViewer is the monitoring hub for investigating, taking action against, and visualizing threats hitting your site. With the LogViewer tool, users can easily sort, filter, and interact with threats in real-time to determine their authenticity and block IPs to prevent further attacks, or create exceptions to allow legitimate users to pass.


ServerDefender VP Web application firewall for AWS is currently available with Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2012 on any EC2 instance type. More information on requirements can be found here. Licensing for the software will be $ .30/hour across all EC2 instance types.


Founded in 2002, Port80 Software develops tools to enhance performance and security for Microsoft IIS servers. Port80’s advanced, yet user-friendly products aim to help system administrators, IT professionals, and information security professionals achieve their Web security and performance goals and requisite compliance. Port80’s compression and caching tools httpZip, CacheRight, and ZipEnable allow users to unlock their sites potential by improving performance. through rules based software technology. Port80’s Web security tools provide anti-leaching, server anonymization, and Web application protection.

WSO2 to Present Technical Webinar on Using Cloud-Enabled WSO2 Application Server for Business Scalability

Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) July 24, 2012

An elastic cloud infrastructure allows businesses to rapidly deploy applications while minimizing costs. However, the traditional application servers deployed in most organizations do not meet the requirements necessary for them to move to the cloud. What enterprises need instead are application servers that support a wide range of deployment options, including installation on public and private clouds in addition to standalone uses. To facilitate this effort, WSO2 will present a free webinar on how developers can optimize their business scalability with the cloud-enabled WSO2 Application Server.

The one-hour technical session, WSO2 Intro Webinar – Scale your Business with the Cloud-Enabled WSO2 Application Server,” is being held twice on Thursday, August 2: 9:00 a.m. 10:00 a.m. PDT for the Americas and 10:00 a.m. 11:00 a.m. GMT for Europe and Asia-Pacific.

Application Outsourcing Industry Shaken by Hyper-rationalization, Unprecedented Pricing PressureEverest Group Reports

Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) June 03, 2014

Two significant trendshyper-rationalization and unprecedented pricing pressure on providersare rocking the world of Application Outsourcing (AO), according to Everest Group.

In its just-released report, Everest Group describes how enterprises are seeking to reduce application portfolios by as much as 60 percent through hyper-rationalization initiatives. For ages, enterprises have adopted application rationalization strategies; hyper-rationalization is the next stage of this journey. Hyper-rationalization not only encompasses the mass peripheral applications but also focuses on the core applications landscape.

Simultaneously, enterprises are demanding of providers complete pricing transparency and cost reductions, driving average pricing of AO engagements down for the third straight year. Buyers believe that service providers are unable to offer incremental value through application services and, therefore, demand price reduction. Cutthroat competition among providers assures that most providers agree to these price reduction demands.

These findings and more are discussed in Application Outsourcing Annual Report 2014: Rationalization Goes Hyper.
