XyberSecure Joins Rackspace Cloud Tools Program to Offer Real Time Web Application Security to Customers

XyberShield SaaS Defends Web Applications Against the Top OWASP and PCI-DSS Requirement 6.6 Defined Attacks

SAN FRANCISCO--()--An increasing awareness of large data breaches and reports of compromised personal financial information has led to a growing number of web security regulations, specifically the mandatory PCI-DSS compliance. To help cloud customers meet mandatory PCI-DSS and web security requirements, XyberSecure has joined Rackspace® Hosting’s Cloud Tools Program to provide XyberSecure’s XyberShield (http://www.xybershield.com), a behavior based, real time web application security software as a service (SaaS).

“We are excited to have XyberSecure develop on top of The Rackspace Cloud and offer XyberShield through the Rackspace Cloud Tools Program,” said Nishan Sivathasan, director of corporate development for Rackspace. “XyberSecure’s XyberShield helps to enable its users to implement security applications to meet compliance policies and protect their environments, which we think is a great tool to make available to cloud customers.”

“For the past several years, our Fortune 500 customers have relied on us for the latest in web application protection,” said Rick Maharaj, XyberSecure’s Chief Technology Officer. “Many of our current users utilize shopping carts within their websites and need to meet PCI-DSS 6.6 compliance. Others just require real-time protection from the most common cyber-attacks. With our service available through the Rackspace Cloud Tools program, all Rackspace customers can quickly set up our robust security system to protect their web applications.”

Several industry news outlets report many businesses still need to acquire data security, but cannot afford the hardware, software and human resources that accompany solutions. Meanwhile, cyber criminals continue to escalate attacks upon large databases. Businesses welcome having less expensive alternatives, but still need robust security to meet regulations.

“Not only does price differentiate our security system, but also our behavioral analysis and correlation engine’s ability to monitor and learn from all of our customers’ websites simultaneously. From our system’s analysis we continually enhance existing XyberFrames and verify what new XyberFrames are needed,” said Maharaj.

XyberShield protects internal and public facing Web applications by providing a 24 hour monitoring system consisting of a behavior analysis engine and security modules, known as XyberFrames. XyberFrames and other aspects of the security system are continually updated by XyberSecure.
