Breach Security is focused on deployable application security and recognizes the need for adaptive security that learns from application behavior rather than coding and configuration maintenance.
The company�s primary product is the BreachGate suite of application security appliances, which protect static and dynamic applications. Breach Security also sells other security technology products that enhance the operations of network intrusion detection and prevention systems.
Breach�s products feature a revolutionary system of Adaption� - essentially, an automated learning process that eliminates the need for manual security policy development and configuration. Today, most security point products require several hours� worth of configuration and monitoring. These manual processes can swamp overburdened IT departments. With Adaption�, Breach products dynamically learn what�s considered acceptable and standard �behavioral procedures� for an organization�s numerous applications, and become sensitive to suspect changes in usage patterns.
With headquarters in Carlsbad, California, sales offices across the United States, and R&D facilities in Herzliya, Israel, Breach Security provides a truly global focus on today's application security challenges.
