EasyWAF and BinarySEC story
The founders of the company developed their product concept in 2001. Initially, the computer security expert Michaël Vergoz developed a computing tool to prevent “low level” attacks, in order to avoid buffer overflows.
This technology was put through its paces in 2003, when it was implemented on an Apache web server which received 20 million intrusion attempts, all unsuccessful. The protection method is patent pending.
This demonstration showed the need for a complementary solution, capable of blocking the exploitation of “high level” or application vulnerabilities (on the HTTP layer) without corrupting memory.
The following year, in partnership with the University Research Group IREMIA, BinarySEC developed an Artificial Intelligence engine capable of learning to recognise the normal internet traffic and blocking application attacks such as or Cross-Site Scriptings (XSS).
Today, BinarySEC’s goal is to provide firms and local authorities with accessible and efficient protection against the latest web-based threats.
