Cloud-based security offering will detect and prevent Web-based threats

July 13, 2016

SUNNYVALE, Calif., – July 13, 2016Azul Systems (Azul), the award-winning leader in Java runtime solutions, today announced an agreement with BrixBits to provide support for the company’s Security Analyzer across Azul Zing and Azul Zulu. With this partnership, clients of both companies can implement a high level of application-layer threat monitoring, detection and prevention without sacrificing Java runtime performance.

The BrixBits Security Analyzer is a comprehensive application security monitoring solution for Java runtimes that delivers critical information to identify and stop threats in real time. The solution protects against threats common in the Java environment, including cross-site scripting, SQL injection attacks and serialization vulnerabilities. With BrixBits, Azul Zing can provide the industry’s most secure Java platform for critical web stack and e-commerce applications, while Azul Zulu can benefit from BrixBits’ protection for security-sensitive, general purpose workloads.

“The openness and flexibility of Java also makes it vulnerable to certain types of application-layer attacks that can be devastating to a company’s brand and ability to do business,” said Scott Crawford, Research Director, Information Security, 451 Research. “By partnering together, Azul and BrixBits can expand the level of protection for an enterprise Java platform while reducing the impact on performance.”

“Through Azul, BrixBits’ customers gain the advantage of superior Java runtime performance, with the added knowledge that their data and complex transactions are safe,” said Rod Endo, Co-Founder and CEO of BrixBits.

“For companies that have high levels of web transactions, especially those in the retail and financial services industries, having the highest level of security has often come at the expense of overall performance,” said Scott Sellers, Azul Systems president and CEO. “By partnering with Azul, BrixBits can ensure that business-critical Java applications will gain new levels of security without sacrificing performance.”
