ThreatSentry is a Web Application Firewall and Intrusion Prevention solution that helps system administrators improve web application security and comply with regulatory demands such as Section 6.6 of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard. ThreatSentry 4 supports Windows Server 2008 R2 and IIS 7 on 32 and 64 bit systems. An ISAPI Extension hosted in MMC, ThreatSentry's knowledgebase of pre-configured filters is designed to identify and block a broad range of web application threats including Structured Query Language (SQL) Injection, DoS, Cross Site Request Forgery (CSRF/XSRF), Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) and other attack techniques. ThreatSentry's conventional defense capabilities are augmented by a behavior-based Intrusion prevention that profiles typical request activity and detects unusual events and patterns indicative of zero-day and targeted attacks. Default configuration settings are designed to deliver optimal out-of-box performance and administrative ease.
