Implementing web security in a defense-in-depth architecture

Monday, 20 February 2006, 12:00 AM EST

Web-borne threats are increasingly fast, sophisticated, and criminal in their intent. This paper outlines best-practice defense-in-depth web security policy to protect users, client devices, and core Internet-facing applications. It recommends installing Network Engines NS Series Security Appliances behind a perimeter firewall to provide the application-layer protection of Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server 2004 integrated with comprehensive web security provided by the Websense Web Security Suite. The solution provides multiple layers of security, including protection from threats contained in Instant Messages, streaming media, and P2P file-sharing. As the only appliances to unite Websense with ISA, the solution enables administrators to integrate policy management to control access to both internal and external resources through Active Directory.
