A software-based Web application firewall called DotDefender(TM) is deployed as a Web server plug-in to identify and stop attacks that attempt to exploit vulnerabilities in Web applications. Protection is provided through a combination of three security engines: pattern recognition, session protection, and a signature knowledge base. Automatic updates ensure protection against the latest threats.

The Textron Generic Token-Based Access System (GTBAS) is a database- driven application that facilitates integration via a “virtual handshake” between third-party Internet applications and a company’s user authentication.

Companies can autonomously control information while securely sharing just what’s needed to make applications work together seamlessly.
