Defense Robot – The breakthrough innovation for the cybersecurity market

Are you tired of the never-ending malware infections? Would you like to get rid of the nightmare of the long hours spent troubleshooting? Do you still seem to get repeatedly infected regardless of how often you make malware removals? It’s enough of the reactive protection! The old way What would usually happen when a server became infected? People had to buy special security tools, which had really high prices to find malware. If it succeeded, the sysadmins had to spend plenty of hours (or in worse cases several days) to remove the malware. The other option was to pay for someone to do t...

New Feature is Available: FTP CAPTCHA

We’d like to start this year with a great announcement. Our purpose is to help make your servers safe and your service reliable.

New LogAnalysis with 109x speed

New LogAnalysis with 109x speed

New LogAnalysis with 109x speed The former version of SenseLog (which serves our robust LogAnalysis module) has processed the files at the start and observed them if there were any changes in them. It has used a lot of sources for the dates in the log rows. In this version it was necessary because SenseLog had to recognize the changes and had to decide whether it has to to something or not with the changes. The process of log files took longer time because of this. The current version only processing the changes, in the case of delegated logs, SenseLog stands at the end. This way therer...

HTTP/2 support with BitNinja WAF 2.0

HTTP/2 support with BitNinja WAF 2.0 The version of bitninja-ssl-termination 1.1.0, which is practically a HAProxy (1.8.9), can handle HTTP2 connections. It will be installed automatically by BitNinja (v 1.20.10) and it will reconfigure the configs for HTTP/2. It only affects the HTTPS connections. HTTP2 over TLS (h2) is supported by all of the modern browsers. Why HTTP/2?  HTTP/2 compared to HTTP/1.1 is far more powerful, it can broadcast requests and answers in parallel, so the browser needs to open only 1 connection to the server instead of 6-8. This connection is far more...

1.16.1 Version-645% performance improvement for SenseLog

This week we released a new version of BitNinja, which contains many significant performance improvements. But what are the changes exactly? We limited the SS usage of our Outbound WAF module. It will only use SS if a malicious request is caught. Its result will be a significant drop in BitNinja's CPU usage. Our SenseLog module has gone under serious optimization. From now on, it only scans logs stored from the last day.This way we can eliminate its slow loading and operation. Great news, this development increased its performance with 645%. Brilliant, isn't it? Multilingual texts...

In the last 2 weeks, we released 2 new versions of BitNinja. Let’s take a look at the novelties:    BitNinja version 1.12.10: CaptchaChallenge pages now use 403 status code instead of 200. Good bots will notice it and leave it. This means, that the good bots will recognize our captcha pages, and won’t walk around them. Causing that our already low false-positive rate will be further reduced. WordPress wp-login filter threshold increased to 100 attempt. Our log analyser module (SenseLog) perceives a wordpress page update as a wp-login.php request, so we increa...
