InterDo 3.0, KaVaDo’s Web application firewall, monitors all incoming and outgoing traffic preventing threats to critical back-end infrastructure. Based on KaVaDo’s patent-pending Protected-Path technology, InterDo automatically recognises and blocks both known and unknown attacks. It secures most kinds of Web application without the need to modify application servers or install additional software. Using KaVaDo’s patent-pending AutoPolicy tech­nology, InterDo can be automatically configured through a security policy generated by KaVaDo’s ScanDo. InterDo delivers real-time alerts related to system security and activity, and provides tables and charts for viewing Web traffic, security violations and other system statistics. InterDo’s modular Security Pipe scan be applied in any number of combinations to suit the exact security needs of the application. InterDo complements existing security measures such as intrusion detection systems and network firewalls by protecting against attacks that otherwise go unnoticed until damage is done. In an environment of rapid technological change, InterDo’s open architecture is designed to meet the unforeseen security needs of the future. KaVaDo’s teams of engineers continually research application-layer security needs in order to provide systems with up-to-the-minute functionality updates. InterDo is compatible with Solaris, Linux, and Windows operating systems. It is available on CD or as a rack-mountable appliance. KaVaDo Enterprise Edition is distributed in Australia by TechPlus Distribution. RRP: Starts from $15,000 (inc. GST).

The Teros-100 APS firewall appliance is an enterprise security solution that provides real-time protection for Web-based applications. The APS provides protection for all 16 web vulnerability classes, including unknown or “zero-day” attacks. The Teros APS runs on the Teros-100 Secure Application Gateway, a hardened appliance that installs in about an hour. The Teros APS positive security model has never been broken, even after extensive third party testing and hacking. The APS automatically analyses application traffic and develops rules to allow for variations in even the most complex applications, but generalises the rules to manageable number for implementation (generally 10-20 rules). The APS can typically be installed in a day and deployed in a week if needed and scaled to suit even the largest high-volume environments. The device reduces the cost of server patching, web code QA and ongoing device maintenance and can accelerate network performance and reduce the number of web servers, the vendor claims. The APS is distributed in Australia by ChannelWorx. RRP: Starts from $65,000 (ex. GST).
