ServerDefender VP Review 2.1.1
ServerDefender Vulnerability Protection is an advanced Web application firewall suitable for use with websites and programs that are running on a Microsoft IIS web server. It brings you PCI-compliant protection as soon as you enable it. ServerDefender VP prevents a variety of Internet attacks, including brute force, buffer overflows, cross-site scripting with XSS, denial of service, dictionary, request forgery, SQL injection and zero-day.
Developed by Port80 Software, this Windows application is designed to examine all incoming GETS and POSTS data. It has controls that you configure to meet your specific security requirements. ServerDefender VP begins using its security policy by generating monitoring and session cookies on its own. This eliminates the issue of having leftover orphan sessions whose vulnerability may attract the attention of computer hackers. The best part of ServerDefender VP is that it works right out of the box, so you can immediately begin protecting your vulnerable systems.
Use ServerDefender VP to stay on top of your system’s security issues. You can have instant knowledge of everything that is happening on the site you’re protecting. The summary shows you site’s current status along with a summary of attack methods that hackers frequently use. With little or zero change to your system’s infrastructure, you can use ServerDefender VP to monitor all HTTP traffic and to perform real-time analysis.
The application is quite customizable. For example, you can set it to eliminate false positives, as well as use the log viewer to set exceptions according to the particular safety issues of your system. You even have the ability to set up an exception string using only the URL and field. The advanced reporting capabilities of ServerDefender VP mean that you can quickly find emerging system vulnerabilities, communicate information about them and then correct the problems.
The logging tool lets you see complete details of all blocked requests, which is another useful tool when you are identifying weak points in your system. You will see such details as the date and time of each attack, the type of attack the hackers used, the source of the attack and the reason ServerDefender VP blocked it.
