SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Teros, the company that secures web infrastructures from application attacks, today announced FireLine, a new model of its award-winning Teros Secure Application Gateway designed for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and business units within large enterprises. The FireLine appliance provides immediate protection for web applications, and prevents the disclosure of sensitive corporate and customer information which can result in fraud, identity theft, and legal liability. FireLine is designed for companies that lack in-house application security experience and can be installed and configured in less than 60 minutes.

“While SMEs are subject to the same application-layer attacks that plague large enterprises, most need vendors to supply application security systems that are absurdly easy to deploy and manage,” said Eric Ogren, Senior Analyst, Security Solutions and Services for leading IT research firm the Yankee Group. “The Teros FireLine appliance makes application security accessible to SMEs by allowing users to define and enforce a security policy without requiring detailed knowledge of each protected application. It is irresponsible not to have an application gateway, such as the Teros FireLine, to protect consumers that interact with web applications.”

FireLine enables SMEs to benefit from the same advanced application protection capabilities previously only available to large enterprises with application security expertise. The FireLine appliance can be easily installed and administered by network security managers using a new graphical user interface (GUI) that features a five-step configuration process, pre-defined “best practices” security policies, and the ability to customize security settings at either the global or per-application level. Once defined, a single security policy can be enforced to protect multiple web servers running an unlimited number of web applications.
