new module includes number of tools:
Application FireWall (Proactive Filter) protects the system from
most known web attacks. The filter recognizes dangerous threats
within incoming requests and blocks intrusions accordingly. The
Proactive Filter is the most effective way to guard against possible
security defects in any web project implementation (XSS, SQL Injection,

authorized user session data. However, Authorized Session Protection
makes such session hijacking ineffective since they cannot access
the browser session.
Activity Control protects from
DDoS attacks and bots.
Log. All events occurring in the system, including the unusual
or malicious, are logged. This gives the administrator the power
to discover attacks and intrusion attempts while they occur, so
he can riposte immediately and prevent intrusion.
Control Panel pages. This type of protection strictly regulates
secure networks from which the users are allowed to access control
panel. By specifying restrictive IP ranges, only specific nodes
in the network can access the control panel.
Lists contain parameters used to restrict access to a site and
possibly redirect to a specified page. Any visitor matching the
stop list criteria (e.g. an IP address), will be blocked.
Integrity Monitor verifies script integrity for any changes. Only
authorized script changes will be accepted.
Protection protects from scripts attempting to acquire sensitive
information such as usernames, passwords, and credit card details
by masquerading as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication.
