Waratek,
the compiler-based application security company, today unveiled its new
ARMR platform, which includes a new next-generation web application
firewall (NG-WAF) offering, providing complete security for all business
applications.

The Waratek ARMR Application Security Platform brings advanced active
protection to new and legacy applications with support for all languages
and platforms, and provides threat mitigation and remediation for common
application vulnerabilities. The company’s new NG-WAF, delivered by the
ARMR platform, is an easy-to-deploy and easy-to-use solution that
protects web applications and websites against threats such as the ones
covered by the OWASP Top 10. The NG-WAF offering builds on Waratek’s
existing runtime security suite that provides low-level defense against
known and zero-day threats without impacting performance or requiring
application code changes. It was also announced that Waratek’s ARMR
platform now includes support for Java 11 virtual upgrades, setting a
new industry standard in legacy application security.

“Web applications continue to be hackers’ primary targets as more than
two-thirds of web applications have known software vulnerabilities.
Meanwhile new vulnerabilities are constantly surfacing, putting security
teams in an unwinnable battle to keep their companies safe,” said John
Matthew Holt, founder & CTO, Waratek. “While traditional solutions
simply discover application vulnerabilities, Waratek’s ARMR platform
takes the next step, providing automated security and vulnerability
patching with no false positives, something no other application
security solution could previously achieve.”

Waratek CEO John Adams went on to say, “Waratek has continued to see
tremendous growth with our Runtime Application Self-Protection (RASP)
product and our ability to help customers modernize their legacy
platforms. The ARMR platform will allow us to quickly deliver new
products, like our new NG-WAF, and improve the security and protection
our customers expect.”

Adding to the expanded portfolio, Waratek has also announced several new
partnerships to its already robust list of technology partners, MSSP,
VAR’s, and systems integrators. New partners include Rimini Street,
Cirosec, Intuity, as well as achieving Advanced Technology Partner
status with Amazon Web Services and integration with IBM BigFix.

Waratek will be showcasing its industry-leading application security
solutions at this year’s FS-ISAC
Annual Summit
in Orlando, Florida on Tuesday April 30, 2019 at
11:45am in booth 55, Asia 1.
