The number of attacks on web applications has increased dramatically and security solutions such as WAF and EDR are missing attacks because they have no visibility into applications. K2 provides complete runtime protection of web applications against advanced zero-day and other sophisticated attack types like SQL Injection, Remote Code Injection (RCI) and Remote Code Execution (RCE) in real time. K2 has developed a unique technology that creates a “DNA” map of the applications. The “DNA” map is used during runtime to validate that the application executes as designed and alerts on deviations of correct execution caused by sophisticated attacks.
Comprehensive Protection without the Complexity
Ease of Deployment
K2’s agent deploys on physical or virtual servers (VMs) or Kubernetes in minutes
Automatically protects applications without interfering with execution
Unique architecture resulting in no slowdown of application performance
Real time attack detection with no false alerts for quick response and remediation
Detailed attack telemetry includes IP address of the attacker and line number of the vulnerable code
Integration with Slack, Splunk and other SIEM solutions
Limitations of Legacy Security Solutions
Network and End Point security solutions like Web Application Firewall (WAF) and Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) are not capable of detecting many attacks making it necessary to secure web applications at runtime as a last line of defense. Sophisticated attacks exploit nuances of modern web applications and cloud infrastructure which requires visibility into applications that WAF and EDR security solutions lack. They rely on pattern matching, machine learning and signature-based technology resulting in many missed attacks and creation of many false alerts. WAF and EDR solutions do not understand web application architecture as well as lack the language support so cannot provide effective web application protection against sophisticated attacks.
Benefits of Using the K2 Application Protection Platform
No use of signatures or behavior-based technologies results in fast, accurate detection without false alerts
Protects against known or zero-day attacks with no prior knowledge of the vulnerability
Deep understanding of application execution results in sophisticated attack detection
Comprehensive web application platform and language support
