Signal Sciences has announced its Network Learning Exchange (NLX) and new Power Rules offerings. It also added an intuitive user-interface for defining, monitoring, and taking action on any web application or API transaction.

According to the company, Signal Sciences NLX provides a data feed of known threats that have been confirmed to be malicious elsewhere to provide advanced warning to other Signal Sciences customers.

The solution eliminates the need to send signatures, which often causes false positives, and instead delivers alerts only when confirmed malicious sources are present on a site.

Power Rules provides a flexible and simple platform to achieve business logic protection. Customers can define signals in the user interact and then trigger automated actions using those signals. It also broadens the ability of enterprises to find and address attacks beyond OWASP injection, which is typically the focus of legacy WAF and RASP tools.

Combining Signal Sciences NLX and Power Rules allows security teams to auto-alert and block from network intelligence from Signal Sciences NLX and ensure the highest level of protection.

“With NLX and Power Rules, Signal Sciences continues to innovate in the WAF market which hasn’t seen meaningful advances either by incumbents or through technology acquisition. For example, Gartner continues to identify weak analytics and efficacy from legacy WAF, especially amidst the rapid adoption of multi/hybrid cloud and DevOps. Today, Signal Sciences sees more than 150 billion requests weekly and with NLX, we’ve created a resilient, protective layer that uses that data to continually advance our detection intelligence. The result is 95% of our customers have blocking mode enabled on their production sites,” said Andrew Peterson, CEO of Signal Sciences. “With Power Rules, enterprises can see beyond basic OWASP injection attacks and focus on the traffic that could be harming their business—something they didn’t have before.”
