Synesis introduced an innovative cyber security platform for multi-layered web applications protection
Synesis released TheWall, an innovative cyber security platform for multistage protection of web applications against hacker attacks. It provides a comprehensive defense against various types of intrusions and allows to prevent or stop hacking attempts.
The uniqueness of the platform is its flexibility. The platform allows you to create custom security rules to protect against attacks on web applications and detect intrusions at the protocol level.
The platform provides protection on 3 levels:
- Web Application Firewall (WAF)
- Intrusion Detection and Prevention System (IDS/IPS)
- Network Level Filter (NetFilter)
The multi-component protection ensures the principle of an echelonized defense, where each subsequent layer reinforces the previous one.
“Components protect applications from different types of intrusions and at the same time complement each other within the platform, – Oleg Boitsev, TheWall product manager explains. – The intrusion detection system responds to attack attempts at the earliest stages, while Web Application Firewall already protects against exploitation of vulnerabilities. NetFilter allows blocking all requests from a specific IP address and stopping an attack”.
TheWall active layers
You can add your own native protection rules written from scratch to the platform. This allows you to quickly secure the application from zero-day vulnerabilities, for which there are no protection mechanisms yet.
Custom native rules can be created not only for Firewall, but also for intrusion detection system, which distinguishes TheWall from other products on the market.
User-friendly interface makes it easy to set up protection and handle incoming threats. You don’t need to take courses or look for additional information to use the program.
The company intends to enhance the platform with artificial intelligence technologies. This will allow the system to learn, significantly reduce the number of false alarms and improve detection of zero-day vulnerabilities in future.
The developers also plan to implement virtual patching. This will help to prevent vulnerability exploitation without source code modification and to respond to emerging threats even faster.
Fault tolerance and scalability of the platform will allow using it for protection of any highly loaded applications.
TheWall is already working with major Synesis products, complementing the ecosystem for a smart city.
“We have tested the new product in-house and we are planning to implement it with existing Synesis customers in 5 countries at once. TheWall will protect city video surveillance systems, corporate messengers and IoT-device networks”, said Nikolay Ptitsyn, managing partner of Synesis.
The company is also working with major Russian integrators to use the platform to protect smart city solutions, portals for government services, financial services, large online stores and other products.
Synesis develops smart city platforms, access control systems, products for events management, instant messengers and online games. Cloud computing, artificial intelligence, chatbots, storage and processing of big data, cybersecurity are the competencies of Synesis.
