70% of world’s top 100 websites face info-sec threats and legal issues unstoppable by firewalls
According to info-sec expert studies, 70% of the world’s top 100 websites contain malicious links that re-direct visitors to malicious websites, let alone ordinary individual and small business websites. There is not one single Web Application Firewall(WAF) product catered for them in the market, it is estimated at least 2 million websites face serious info-sec threats that could lead to unbearable legal issues.
Famous websites have major concerns on OWASP Top 10 web vulnerability when they tackle web application development, they are aware of the importance of firewalls, most webmasters are able to deploy firewalls in place on their own, but what they do not realize is that conventional firewalls only protect layer 2 and layer 3 of the network communication protocol. The latest cyber attacks (SQL Injection, cross-site scripting) intrude web application directly. International Gartner Research Institute indicated that 75 percents of the website attacks are targeted at web applications that conventional firewalls cannot protect. Individual and small business websites become vulnerable targets to hackers and become the stepping stone to more website attacks. Furthermore, PCI-DSS 6.6 recommends adoption of WAF practice to bridge the last mile gap between web application code review with total web security if they are to deal with customers’ confidential business transactions.
Although webmasters are aware of the importance of WAF, existing WAF products in the market are made for corporate customers that are too expensive to acquire for small scale website owners. To increase the security of those small scale website owners, DragonSoft introduces an easy-to-install, affordable WAF product to this segment.

DragonWAF offers multi-intellectual website protections, working jointly with conventional firewalls, the individual and small business websites are protected effectively against malicious codes, website defacement, customer data leaks, following by immense legal responsibilities.
