Gartner Research VP and Distinguished Analyst, Avivah Litan, mentioned Shape Security on her blog discussing the growing threat of automated attacks on websites. Shape Security has been mentioned in multiple other reports. The difference here is this blog that is publicly available for everyone (including those without a Gartner subscription).
According to Avivah:
[Shape Security is a] new web application security technique that scrambles website code using a process called polymorphism. This precludes the hackers’ ability to decipher how a web site can be attacked since the logic of the web application is no longer transparent (e.g. no more ‘in the clear’ HTML code).
In her blog, Avivah features Shape Security as a solution to these automated attacks. Specifically, she states that Shape’s polymorphic technology deflects malicious automation, preventing the attacks from executing at the point of entry. Deflection is better than detection – preventing attack is better that finding the attacker ex post facto.
