 Application Security - Next Layer of Protection

Many companies are just now beginning to realize the importance of web application security. Some are learning the hard way. Most veteran security professionals are aware of common Unix applications that have been historically vulnerable such as versions of BIND/DNS, FTP, Sendmail and Apache Web Server. The most predominant business applications being deployed in these instances is email and web services. Since these types of applications are employed to purposely facilitate bidirectional communications most perimeter firewalls are configured to allow data to pass through without much inspection of the payload. eBCVG
