Malicious code can masquerade as valid client requests and normal application data via layer 7 attacks such as SQL injection, cross-site scripting (XSS), and DDoS attacks. Many websites, web applications, and web servers are not prepared for these enormous challenges.

Indigo Software firewalls offer layer 7 web application security by detecting and blocking malicious activities behind inconspicuous website traffic that may slip through traditional security solutions. By embedding the highly performant DPI engine R&S®PACE 2 into their web application firewalls, Indigo Software is now able to accept or deny specific application requests or commands. By enhancing their firewalls with deep packet inspection, Indigo Software can also detect malicious activity and block threats by analyzing web traffic and associated formats such as HTML and Javascript without impacting throughput or performance. These new capabilities have empowered Indigo Software to expand their business to highly regulated industries and markets.
