Let us Manage your Web Application Security

Threat X Intelligent Web Application Firewall (iWAF) utilizes a combination of application profiling and multiple sensor inputs to distinguish malicious attacks from legitimate user behavior. Where other platforms stop at security event identification, Threat X automates the analysis of the events to provide a complete multi-dimensional threat profile. Our profile provides a full analysis and uses plain language to tell you who is attacking, where they are, and how vigorous the attack is over a period of time.

Threat X uses proprietary "trusted sensors" to detect when entities behave unusually, with the ability to immediately act to thwart an attack. Events are correlated across multiple sensors to identify malicious entities based on their combined behavior, not just the security events themselves. Where our competitors may succeed in blocking 99% of malicious traffic, Threat X identifies the remaining 1% without putting legitimate user traffic at risk.

Seven Stages of Attack

Threat X identifies not only the entity performing the attack, but also the level of progress made by the attacker. iWAF tracks threats across the seven states of attack, providing you with multiple response options:


Real-Time Threat Response

Through the process described above, Threat X factors out false-positives and duplicate security events and escalates only when a specific entity has been identified and made progress to the level defined by you. Malicious traffic can be tracked, blocked, or slowed down by redirecting it through a highly-interactive network trap (proprietary, next-generation honeypot). The actions for these can be set for each level of attack escalation and can be automated or programmed to require customer authorization. Under either scenario, you will receive immediate notification. From any web or mobile device, you can access the Threat X response application to view detailed information on an attack, applications involved, actions taken, and recommendations for further action or analysis. We provide real-time alerts and the power to respond anywhere, anytime, and from any device.

Key Benefits

Reduce False Positives

iWAF will accurately identify and block more malicious attacks than any other software on the market without impacting legitimate user activity

Security Team Efficiency

iWAF automates the analysis of thousands of security events without de-tuning the system, greatly reducing the workload of your security professionals.

Rapid Analysis and Response

The iWAF dashboard suite provides a more accurate view of all possible threats, and gets actionable information into your hands faster.

Scalability and Performance

Threat X technology provides superior protection without impacting application responsiveness for you or your end users.

Better Threat Communication

We provide you with the tools necessary to understand your threat situation and communicate it clearly and concisely, at every level of the company, from the executive suite to the help desk.


The heart of the Threat X architecture is a high-level behavioral analysis engine (hackerMind™). Our engine uses fuzzy logic and advanced matching techniques to provide intrusion detection at the entity level (i.e. person or application). Like other security software, events and anomalies are still tracked by hackerMind™, but we don't stop there. Those events become inputs to the decision engine, and are incorporated with other dimensions, such as the attacker and the level of infiltration based on techniques they use in their attempts to exploit the network.


Threat Correlation

hackerMind™ utilizes multiple inputs including a layer-3 firewall, a web application firewall, an IPS engine, and an IP reputation database. Events across different engines and sources are correlated by the hackerMind™ engine and three signatures are applied to accurately identify and track malicious entities and attack escalations.

Trusted Sensors

iWAF uses additional trusted inputs to further reduce false positives and accurately track malicious behavior. These Trusted Sensors are tuned with hackerMind™ technology to provide input we can trust to be accurate and real time – keeping out the bad guys and letting your customer traffic pass through.


The Threat X Advantage

This combination of technologies and techniques allow Threat X to avoid many of the issues that plague other WAF, NGFW, IPS and NBA competitors. Threat X can accomplish in minutes, with minimal human interaction, what it takes other software teams days to do: analyze events and develop new identification signatures.

Our Threat Control dashboard and alerts provide real-time situational awareness regarding the attacker and their infiltration level, without bombarding you with detailed event information. By focusing on the attacker and malicious behavior, Threat X provides a new solution that is much more resilient to false positives, false negatives, and zero-day attacks, while at the same time being far less complex to implement and operate.

Modern Architecture Designed for the Cloud

The Threat X platform was developed from the beginning with the Cloud in mind. The platform is based on a highly scalable, container-based architecture that can be deployed virtually anywhere. Instead of running software in VMs, Threat X deploys all applications in Docker containers, removing the need for the hypervisor and taking advantage of near “on metal” speeds. Threat X utilizes CoreOS to manage clusters, and to deploy and monitor applications containers. The strategies and architectures employed by Threat X allow companies like Google, Netflix and Twitter to run their services at scale with high resilience. As a side benefit, the combination of these technologies allows Threat X to maximize performance while keeping operating costs in check as the system grows and expands.
