are expected to benefit from this partnership, enabling them to get

WAF false positive guarantee.

Indusface
will enable its portfolio of security-as-a-services for NxtGen
customers of all sizes to help detect, defend and protect against
application vulnerabilities. As per the terms of the partnership, all
NxtGen customers will receive a free application security assessment
that provides them visibility into the risk levels of their data
center applications. Customers can then procure, at special terms
Indusface’ Web Application Firewall (WAF) solution to fix
application vulnerabilities. IndusGuard WAF is the industry’s
first to offer a zero WAF false positive guarantee (i.e. no
obstruction of legitimate web traffic).Indusface and NxtGen will also
jointly enable round the clock monitoring by trained security experts
and 24X7customer support for all the services offered.

More
than 600% growth in unethical hacking1has been registered in India
alone. The Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In) reported
22,060 incidents of web security breach in 2012, which grew to 71,780
incidents in 2013, an incremental increase. So far this year, 62,189
breaches such as phishing, scanning, spam, malicious code and website
intrusions, etc have been reported.This partnership is significant
given the vulnerable security environment today. Global research
reports indicate that the number of data breaches, both experienced
and reported is expected to continue to rise in 2014, with new
security threats and regulations pushing for more transparency on the
horizon.

We
are pleased to have forged this partnership with NxtGen – Businesses
today need the agility to continuously identify security issues and
take the necessary steps to mitigate threats. With Indusface
customers can gain unprecedented visibility into the security
vulnerabilities in their environments to take the appropriate
remediation actions to safeguard their critical assets at all times”,
said Ashish Tandon, CEO & Founder, Indusface. ““Gartner
emphasizes that 75% of cyber attacks take place at the web
application layer. In our experience almost 8 in 10 critical
vulnerabilities remained unpatched for more than 30 days, permitting
dangerous exposures, hampering efficiency and usability”.

A.S. Raj
Gopal, Managing Director & CEO, NxtGen Datacenter & Cloud
Technologies said, “For a majority of organizations today, their
core applications run on IT platforms either co-located off premise,
in the cloud or on-premise (e.g. via NxtGen OPDC type of solutions),
and their security and uninterrupted availability determines major
business outcomes. Indusface’ Security-as-a-service offering helps
us to scan, identify and mitigate web app vulnerabilities and
associated data integrity risks seamlessly. It brings an unparalleled
combination of scalability and simplicity to web app security. Our
deployment of IndusGuard WAF ensures that NxtGen systems are
maintained to the level of security and regulatory compliance that
customers need and demand”.
