2xmoinscher.com is an e-commerce platform that links buyers and sellers of new and used products. Operated by Trokers SA, 2xmoinscher.com is a market place where thousands of daily transactions take place. The site’s 3 million monthly unique visitors need a high secured online purchasing capabilities as well as continuous service availability and connectivity to achieve the best customer experience. In such a critical context, the organization needed a comprehensive preventive solution against attacks and one which would assure PCI compliance for its business.
In the e-commerce sector, attempted network and application attacks potentially causing service disruptions can affect profitability and customer trust. It is essential for web sites such as 2xmoinscher.com to have a solution in place able to meet these challenges - especially with the increase of web application oriented attacks, such as SQL injection or cross-site scripting (XSS) which target e-commerce web sites, as it becomes harder to mitigate them. Concerned by this issue and constantly willing to improve the quality of experience and services, 2xmoinscher.com elected to rapidly change its network infrastructure to further raise the level of security protection and compliance and provide customers with uninterrupted availability.
After assessing several solutions, 2xmoinscher.com selected Radware’s application delivery and security product suite, including AppDirector, AppWall, and DefensePro.
• AppDirector fully optimizes the 2xMoinsCher.com website through load balancing and ensuring that continuous connectivity is achieved in addition to application acceleration for improved quality of experience and faster response time;
• AppWall protects customer-sensitive data by ensuring that the web applications are secure against threats and vulnerabilities such as SQL injection or XSS attacks as well as for anti-fraud protection; and
• DefensePro addresses denial of service issues and provides protection against non-vulnerability attacks, while maintaining business continuity without blocking legitimate traffic.
“Radware is a unique vendor who fully addresses our security, PCI compliance and application delivery needs. Our site has experienced secure, continuous application availability and security since we deployed these Radware solutions, improving our business performance.” said Alexis Tondelier, Infrastructure Manager at 2xmoinscher.com/.
Radware’s DefensePro protects the 2xmoinscher.com website from network-based attacks such as Trojans, worms, and services-based attacks through proactive automatic signature updates. Depending on the type of threat to the 2xMoinsCher.com network, DefensePro creates an automatic real-time signature that accurately mitigates an attack, without any human intervention required. Once DefensePro’s real-time signature is created and implemented, approved network traffic is able to continue as normal. Additionally, non-vulnerability-based attacks are addressed by DefensePro. As these attacks normally go unnoticed by other security solutions, DefensePro’s advantage is that it detects the malicious source and generates a real-time signature which blocks the attacker’s access to the webpage under attack.
Radware’s AppWall, a highly-performing Web Application Firewall (WAF) appliance, enables PCI compliance and mitigates web application security threats and vulnerabilities such as attempted data theft and manipulation of sensitive customer information by hackers. The devices block all risky traffic to the 2xmoinscher.com website and monitor sensitive information and transactions, such as the exchange of personal data by users. Once a threat is detected, instant protection is administered, allowing 2xmoinscher.com to deploy and secure new web applications within hours. 2xMoinsCher.com’s deployment of AppDirector devices to handle load balancing of their server park enables full application continuity and redundancy by eliminating traffic surges, server bottlenecks, disconnection of connectivity and downtime. Additionally, AppDirector is used for URL rewrite to obfuscate the real application URL for increased security.
“Visitors to the site are confident that their sensitive data is protected against malicious attacks and enjoy a continuous online connection. Buyers and sellers are able to complete transactions securely and efficiently – resulting in additional repeat visitors to the site,” declared Alexis Tondelier.
