Network security remains an important layer of defense, but signature-based defenses rely on filters to look for known exploits. A well-known exploit for these solutions is to bypass filters and inject SQL code using comments, capital letters or encoding, among other techniques. Network defenses that monitor the OSI layers will see parts of the malicious query. Only within the application is the entire query constructed into its fully executable form. Because Application Defender has the complete context from within the application, it can see the full and final query to determine if it is malicious. See how App Defender works.
