KEMP Technologies Announces Integration of its Load Balancer Operating System with Native Web Application Firewall

Web application firewall (WAF) services will be natively integrated in the KEMP Technologies LoadMaster load balancer operating system. This will enable secure deployment of web applications preventing Layer-7 attacks, while maintaining core load balancing services, ensuring superior application delivery performance, high availability and scalability. Trustwave's State of Security report, 96% of web applications scanned by Trustwave in 2013 harbored one or more serious vulnerabilities. The widely deployed WAF engine ModSecurity has been optimized and integrated with KEMP's kernel-based ADC engine. It directly augments LoadMaster's existing security features to create a layered defense for web apps, and therefore enable a safe, compliant and productive use of web application resources. KEMP worked closely with Trustwave's engineering team who are the custodians of ModSecurity to extend the core LoadMaster ADC technology to not only be a flexible L7 application centric delivery engine, but also a dynamic WAF. KEMP's integrated L7 WAF platform is based on rules engine that provides real-time coverage for all published application threats, including the OWASP Top Ten, as well as critical baseline protections. Importantly, it also allows customers to reuse their existing rules based on ModSecurity in a centralized KEMP ADC appliance. With the WAF-ADC integration announced, KEMP enhances its existing security features available on LoadMaster platforms, which currently feature edge security gateway functionality to protect published workloads including reverse proxy, SSO, pre-authentication and SMTP domain filtering, dual-factor authentication, IPS, and SSL bridging for secured traffic flows. KEMP's threat protection also includes attack categories such as IP reputation, botnet attack detection, web-based malware detection, webshell/backdoor detection, HTTP denial of service attack detection, and anti-virus scanning of file attachments.

KEMP Technologies Announces its LoadMaster(TM) Operating System (LMOS) is Now Optimized for Bare Metal Operation on the HP ProLiant DL Series Servers

KEMP Technologies announced that its LoadMaster(TM) Operating System (LMOS) is now optimized for bare metal operation on the HP ProLiant DL Series servers. LMOS for HP ProLiant provides HP customers with flexible scalability for application growth and increased performance for the modern software-defined data center. With bare metal installation and no abstraction layer between the LoadMaster and the underlying hardware, applications no longer need to communicate with a load balancing appliance external to the ProLiant infrastructure. Therefore, communication paths and response times can be minimized, avoiding conventional latency challenges. The synergy of application-centric load-balancing software from KEMP and the HP ProLiant DL server platform will allow administrators to benefit from functionality that exploits the reliability of the ProLiant server family. Application solutions can now be optimized for production workload and business-critical applications, such as enterprise resource planning (ERP) and customer relationship management (CRM) systems that require even higher standards of availability and performance.

KEMP Technologies Full Featured Virtual Loadmaster(TM) ADC Provides L2-7 Load Balancing with SDN Adaptive Technology Through the HP Van Controller

KEMP Technologies announced that its full featured Virtual LoadMaster(TM) ADC now provides L2-7 load balancing with SDN Adaptive technology through the HP VAN (Virtual Application Networks) Controller. This allows customers to build application environments that truly benefit from Software Defined Networking. Application delivery controllers continue to play a critical role in flexible and optimized application network deployments. As SDN adoption continues, customers are demanding innovative and practical solutions that combine the value that SDN brings to L2 with L4-7 network functions such as ADC (Application Delivery Controller), WAF (Web Application Firewall) and WOC (WAN Optimization Controller) Driving further innovation through ADC scalability, KEMP SDN Adaptive Load Balancing Application (patent pending) allows Virtual LoadMasters to 'pull' circuit information related to network congestion across the NBI (northbound interface) within the SDN controller so that it can make better application load balancing decisions through intelligent algorithm aggregation. The tangible benefits to customers and partners will include: Increased application visibility; Improved Layer 2 traffic steering capabilities; and Enablement for true ADC and SDN integration.
