Bringing Next-Generation Malware Protection to SAP(R)
WALLDORF, Germany, May 14, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BowBridge Software,
a leading provider of content security solutions for SAP(R)
applications, and IT-security expert McAfee join forces to protect
business-critical infrastructure from malware and other content
As enterprises continue to expose their applications to the Internet in
order to support the growing need for mobility and streamlined business
processes, the risk of storing virus and malware infected content in
the database increases. Furthermore, content based attacks, such as
cross-site-scripting (XSS), active content in data files, and hybrid
"chameleon"-files can compromise web-applications.
BowBridge solutions explicitly shield from these threats. AntiVirus
Bridge for SAP solutions automatically scans uploads into SAP
applications for file-format anomalies, scripts, hidden content and of
course viruses and malware, leveraging the McAfee VirusScan engine
embedded in the product. The new version 3.0 of AntiVirus Bridge
integrates with SAP NetWeaver(R) Application Server (ABAP(R) or Java)
and is fully configurable from within SAP tools, to facilitate
deployment and monitoring.
"We are delighted to have gained McAfee as a partner," says Michele
Vierra, business development manager North America for BowBridge.
"Customers worldwide trust the McAfee brand and its proven track record
in helping secure all types of IT-infrastructures."
"McAfee's security expertise combined with BowBridge's solutions for
SAP software complement each other very well," says Tom Moore, vice
president of Worldwide OEM Sales at McAfee. "Customers who want to
secure their business-critical data from malware and threats will get
the best of both worlds."
AntiVirus Bridge version 3.0 for SAP solutions, with an embedded McAfee
VirusScan engine, is scheduled to be available on several platforms in
the third quarter of 2012.
To learn more about the benefits of this new partnership, visit
BowBridge in booth 216c at the SAPPHIRE(R) NOW and ASUG Annual
Conference being held May 14-16 in Orlando.
