Privacyware Wins 2012 Golden Bridge Innovation Award for ThreatSentry Web Application Firewall

New Albany, OH (PRWEB) October 08, 2012

Privacyware, developer of the leading softwarebased Web Application Firewall and Host IPS for Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS), announced today that ThreatSentry has been awarded Golden Bridges highest honor in the Web Application Firewall Innovation category for a second consecutive year.

ThreatSentry Web Application Firewall features three distinct and fully integrated layers of Web application security technology including an IIS Filtering Module, Behavior-based Intrusion Prevention Engine and a proprietary network firewall that reliably and effectively identify and block web application threats such as Structured Query Language (SQL) Injection, DDoS, Cross Site Request Forgery (CSRF/XSRF), Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) and other types of attacks. ThreatSentry defense capabilities are based on the OWASP Top Ten Project and helps system administrators comply with regulatory demands such as Section 6.6 of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).

Cybercriminals are skilled, determined and uniquely motivated to create and employ increasingly sophisticated and assertive techniques that exploit web application vulnerabilities and enable illegal access to critical systems and private data, said Privacyware CEO, Greg Salvato. Privacyware is deeply honored to receive this special recognition from Golden Bridge Awards and grateful for their appreciation of our efforts to deliver the technological advances so desperately needed by the system administrators and security and compliance personnel to whom we are dutifully committed.

More than 40 judges from a broad spectrum of industry voices from around the world participated and their average scores determined the 2012 Golden Bridge Business Awards winners. The winners were honored during the awards dinner and presentation on October 2, 2012 in San Francisco attended by the finalists, industry leaders, and judges.
