Today, we are excited to announce tCell by Rapid7, our next-gen WAF and RASP solution, is now available in the Rapid7 Insight cloud’s European region.
Multi-national or European organizations with data sovereignty requirements can now leverage tCell to reduce the risk of a breach via hacking of their web application vectors—a tactic that accounts for approximately 42% of all data breaches in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA), according to the Verizon 2020 DBIR.
The rise of application monitoring and protection technology
Around the globe, security teams are adding monitoring and protection capabilities to adapt to their evolving attack surface and to keep up pace with agile development and deployment methodologies. These security monitoring technologies are growing in popularity due to their flexible deployment options, accuracy, and limited resource constraints, which explains why they are becoming a requirement for security standards such as GDPR, Privacy Shield, PCI, NIST, and others.
Let’s run through an example of application monitoring and protection at work: Imagine a XSS vulnerability is found in one of your critical applications, but the development team says they can’t implement a fix until the next sprint. tCell lets you stay one step ahead by leveraging Content Security Policies (CSPs), blocking with application firewall rules, or preventing execution of any unknown inline scripts in order to prevent the exploitation of that XSS vulnerability. This way, you can buy your developers time to remediate vulnerabilities while you gain peace of mind that your applications are protected.
