App Defender

Identify and Block Suspicious Apps and Protocols used to Circumvent Web Filters.

Application Defense plays an important role in any layered-security strategy. The most common security breaches today include the use of applications and protocols which are designed to hide the user's identity and all Internet traffic. The use of cryptographic algorithms, encryption protocols, non-standard ports and port-hopping make it difficult to distinguish legitimate traffic from attempts to circumvent security. ContentKeeper App Defender identifies and blocks suspicious apps and protocols used to circumvent web filters, resulting in improved security and ensuring organizations remain policy compliant.
