Experts concur that 75 percent of attacks today target Web-based applications. Despite our defenses, attackers continue to be successful because we continue to rely on stateful firewalls and traditional IDS/IPS deep-packet inspection methods. HYDRA uses newer, blended techniques to thwart these application attacks, filling the gap in your defense architecture.
At the network layer, HYDRA can augment basic firewall services and provide DoS protection. At the transport layer HYDRA's network stack resists TCP attacks, and does not even perform a network handshake with your servers until the request passes all blended filters (i.e. your Web servers never even see one packet of an attack). At the application layer HYDRA protects your Web server, it's operating system, and your application - all while preventing it from being a launch-point for subsequent attacks on your database server and data. Some of the protections included are:
Even well-designed applications require the defense from blended threats that HYDRA provides. HYDRA fills the gap in your defense architecture, and enables a total coverage from insider and outsider threats.
