2009-03-23: ARMORLOGIC Announces rapid expansion of global distribution network for its Profense Web Application Firewall as a result of growing awareness of website security

VICTORIA, BC, Canada and COPENHAGEN, Denmark – Armorlogic, makers of Profense web application firewall software, today announced that security concerns are driving the rapid growth of its global distribution network. Recent data thefts of 45,000 employee records at the FAA, 97,000 student files at the University of Florida and 29,500 employee records at Kaiser Permanente highlight the challenges faced by even large and sophisticated organizations. This and the recently reported trillion dollars worth of global damage from data loss (McAfee) has brought many of these issues to the forefront and is driving rapid growth for such companies as Armorlogic, a web application firewall maker based in Victoria, Canada and Copenhagen, Denmark.

With new distributors and resellers in Australia, Brazil, California, Germany, Italy, Oregon, South Korea, Spain and Portugal, Armorlogic is riding a new wave of awareness not only in IT departments but in corporate boardrooms. “It used to be just the IT department who were interested in web security,” says Armorlogic Vice President, Jakob Gercke. “With a 47% increase in documented data breaches in 2008, everybody from the CFO to the CMO is getting involved because of the high costs of breaches in terms of lost customers, damaged reputations and system upgrades.” Adds Gercke, “New privacy regulation, more diligent auditing processes and a time of fiscal restraint have combined to accelerate the popularity of our Profense web application firewall.”

Profense has been generating a lot of interest as the only fully featured software appliance-based web site and web application security solution. While web application firewalls in the past have been tied to expensive proprietary hardware, Profense is instead an easy to use, easy to install “soft appliance” that runs on virtually any common server. This independence from hardware leads to easier redundancy and more flexibility around multi-node setup. “For less than the price of a traditional web application firewall, customers can easily set up a dual server, dual node Profense configuration that includes load balancing and allows for complete redundancy and high availability,” says Armorlogic distributor Yigal Behar of 2Secure of New York, New York .

As one of the only web application firewall products available that satisfies Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard compliance and defends against all OWASP Top Ten threats, Profense’s growth in the web application firewall market is not likely to slow down any time soon.
