Preventing inside jobs with dynamic security


Flask Data provides a one-stop cloud subscription for EDC, data management and statistics.

I was talking to Ilan Meller from Identiwall recently. Ilan was a SVP at CA and his latest company is doing serious work with strong identity and authentication management. They have over a million installed home banking users in Israel.. Ilan told me about three product lines – Identiwall for Secure online transactions, Identiwall VPN and Identiwall Dynamic security that was developed for an Israel defense customer. I thought that Dynamic Security was the most impressive of the 3 products – I’ll let you decide.

Identiwall  for secure online transactions

Target market – online banking, online insurance

Product status: Leading product in Israel for online banking strong identification, authentication, anti-phishing, strong session security. Currently, over 1 million end users

Unique features

  • No end user client software or hardware device required
  • Minimal changes to Web application, hooks into ISAPI layer or Apache module
  • Separate security server, not exposed to Web application server vulnerabilities
  • Session risk management which is maintained external to server side session, i.e. Cannot be corrupted or attacked. It examines navigation patterns – can detect an automated attack pattern within a short time frame, or URL hacking, session hijacking, where the attacker goes directly to a particular URL, bypassing the normal application navigation performing content inspection in order to detect and stop phishing
