Signal Sciences Announces Advanced Protection for Applications on Microsoft AzureAugust 4, 2020
Signal Sciences announced an integration with Microsoft Azure App Service for the Signal Sciences next-gen Web Application Firewall (WAF) and Runtime Application Self-Protection (RASP) solution. By ensuring that the Signal Sciences solution interoperates seamlessly with Azure App Service, the integration makes it easy for enterprises to easily deploy Signal Sciences to protect any of their cloud-native, legacy and serverless applications against attacks, such as the OWASP Top 10, account takeovers, API misuse, and bad bots.
“Protecting our applications on Microsoft Azure could not have been any easier,” said Chris Lopez, cloud architect, Qlik. “The new Signal Sciences integration with Azure App Service makes deployment simple and straightforward, with minimal effort. Our team gets the peace of mind of industry-leading protection, and our application and DevOps teams can do what they do best-build and deploy apps that provide our customers with the best experience.”
Microsoft Azure is one of the fastest-growing cloud computing services on the market today, used by 56 percent of respondents in a recent Goldman Sachs survey of Global 2000 IT executives. Azure App Service currently enables productivity for more than 2 million apps on Azure. Security and DevOps teams need to protect these applications and APIs against Layer 7 attacks without major changes to their operational procedures. Signal Sciences has now addressed that need with advanced protection for Azure App Service.
With a one-click deployment, Signal Sciences next-gen WAF and RASP provides instant visibility and protection for all business-critical applications and APIs on Azure App Service. Unlike other WAF and RASP solutions that are limited to specific programming languages, Signal Sciences integrates at the platform layer instead of the code layer, making it compatible with any application that runs on Microsoft’s Internet Information Services (IIS) within Azure App Service.
“Enterprises are in different stages of digital transformation and their journey to the cloud,” said Jonathan DiVincenzo, vice president of product management at Signal Sciences. “Whether they are running applications on-premises, transitioning legacy applications to the cloud, or deploying cloud-native applications on Azure, our integration with Azure App Service provides instant visibility and advanced application protection, enabling organizations to move faster while ensuring application security is baked in from the start.”
“Azure App Service makes it easy for organizations to modernize existing applications that are hosted on-premises, or to build and deploy new applications using a fully managed platform optimized for developer productivity,” said Sajan Parihar, senior director, Microsoft Azure Platform at Microsoft Corp. “Signal Sciences ensures our mutual customers maintain a strong security posture while building, deploying and scaling their applications and APIs on Azure.”
Signal Sciences offers a leading hybrid and multi-cloud platform that provides next-gen WAF, API Security, RASP, Advanced Rate Limiting, Bot Protection and DDoS protection. Fast and easy to implement, organizations can deploy Signal Sciences web application and API protection to secure their most important web applications, APIs, and microservices on any architecture-all under one unified management system with full feature parity.
Signal Sciences next-gen WAF is fully qualified within the Microsoft Azure certified program, and it is available today on the Microsoft Azure Marketplace.
