AliCloud offers first ICSA and Veracode certified Web Application Firewall powered by NSFOCUS to secure more than 2 million customers
SINGAPORE, August 22, 2017 – NSFOCUS, the leader in holistic hybrid security solutions, is now offering its comprehensive Web Application Security solution on Alibaba Cloud (AliCloud) to ensure enterprises are equipped with the most comprehensive application-layer protection against web attacks that can result in data breaches.
The NSFOCUS Web Application Security solution combines industry-leading Web Application Firewall (WAF) technology for preventing web based attacks against web applications, with proactive vulnerability assessment via its Web Vulnerability Scanning System (WVSS) and real-time global threat intelligence. The WAF and WVSS products are available stand-alone or offered as an integrated solution, working together to continuously identify application vulnerabilities, and provide fasted time to zero-day web vulnerability mitigation. Each product can be deployed either on-premises or in the cloud.
“Businesses in Asia, especially China-based organizations are going regionally and globally, and are rapidly tapping into cloud computing for benefits such as innovation and operational efficiency. Migrating valuable and sensitive data to the cloud rapidly exposes them to unprecedented security challenges, and a large number of these cyberattacks today are aimed at the application layer,” said Attley Ng, Senior Vice President, Asia Pacific, NSFOCUS. “Offering our fully integrated Web Application Security solution on AliCloud provides greater security for customers migrating to the cloud by proactively identifying vulnerabilities and automatically mitigating threats, to keep businesses running even under the most extreme conditions.”
Since its entrance into the cloud computing business in 2009, AliCloud has quickly become a leading global cloud service provider with 17 data centers across China, the United States, Europe, Australia, Southeast Asia and the Middle East. The subsidiary of e-commerce giant Alibaba, AliCloud offers high-performance, elastic computing power in the cloud to over 2 million customers worldwide – to which NSFOCUS’ Web Application Security solutions are now available to.
“We have seen a soaring demand for secure and scalable computing services in Asia Pacific, as countries such as Hong Kong and Singapore seek to position themselves as regional cloud computing hubs,” said Edison Yu, vice president, Head of Enterprise of Frost and Sullivan Digital Transformation Practice . “NSFOCUS is a key player in web application security and this is a strategic move to offer greater protection and more options to their customers.”
NSFOCUS WVSS protects websites by identifying vulnerabilities in web applications that can be exploited by hackers. Following identification, it provides the WAF with actionable analysis and reporting, by creating a virtual patch list to improve the overall security of the website.
Through seamless integration with the WVSS, the WAF automatically generates and applies smart patches according to the data it receives from the scanning reports. These protections are often deployed even before vendor-supplied patching is complete. It is through this approach that NSFOCUS can provide full protection for critical web servers and applications against the top 10 threats identified by the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) and Web Application Security Consortium (WASC), providing the fastest time for zero-day mitigation available today.
NSFOCUS WVSS key features and benefits:
- Efficient and Stable Scanning:Easily scans over 100,000 pages per day by leveraging next-gen technology such as intelligent page crawling, proxy caching, URL-level load balancing and more.
- Closed-Loop Management:The findings of WVSS can be fed into the WAF to generate a “smart patch” to provide closed–loop detection and defense for websites. This closed-loop system ensures the best and most timely protection possible; further reducing operational expenses.
- Virtualized Deployment:Offers flexible implementations and can be installed on-premises as a network appliance or delivered as a cloud service to support a wide range of compliance and security requirements.

NSFOCUS WAF key features and benefits:
- Prevents Theft of Critical Data:Offers complete protection against exploits targeting web application vulnerabilities and the ability to detect unauthorized file uploads. WAF enforces access control policies from layer 4 though 7 to prevent non-authorized access. During an attack, the WAF also provides outbound data leakage detection.
- Ensures Website Availability:Provides a built-in anti-DDoS module to protect against TCP flood attacks, HTTP/S GET/POST flood attacks and slow rate attacks up to 1 Gbps. Coupled with the NSFOCUS ADS anti-DDoS product line, higher rates of DDoS attacks can be thwarted.
- Supports Compliance with PCI DSS:Provides security templates and reports for PCI audits as well as suggestions for policy tuning and configuration to help ensure compliance with PCI-DSS 3.2 and beyond.
