Trustwave, a leading provider of information security and compliance solutions, today announced updates and feature enhancements to ModSecurity, the most widely deployed web application firewall.

ModSecurity is a free, open source web application firewall (WAF) engine for Apache that is continuously developed and managed by SpiderLabs, Trustwave's advanced security team. This open source technology enforces security policies to web transactions, reducing the risk of a web-based attack. As an open source technology, users and developers alike contribute to the community to help maintain a sustainable solution that defends web applications.

To facilitate further development and technological enhancements, ModSecurity has moved to Apache Software License v2. This non-viral open source license will now make it easier to implement ModSecurity with existing Apache programs and custom solutions, as well as community users to contribute code updates. This new licensing affects ModSecurity v2.6 (available in SVN trunk repository) and all subsequent code bases.

Additional new capabilities currently available in v2.6 include:

• Google Safe-Browsing API Integration: Protection for users and content providers from malicious links;
• Sensitive Data Tracking: Ability to identify and track US Social Security numbers;
• Data Modification: Ability to change data on-the-fly, before delivery, in order to better control outgoing content according to security policies.

"As the primary custodians of ModSecurity, we are responsible for providing the best possible user experience," said Robert J. McCullen, chairman and CEO of Trustwave. "These enhancements provide users and contributors with a more secure web application firewall to help protect their organizations from attack."

"As an Apache module, the transition to Apache Software License v2 will help cloud security providers implement ModSecurity to protect their customers web-based assets," said Nicholas J. Percoco, senior vice president and head of SpiderLabs. "As we continue to develop and enhance ModSecurity, we're making source code available to encourage users and contributors to try the new version."

Please visit the ModSecurity SVN Repository to download the latest version of ModSecurity.
