Sponsor Presentation: Avocado Systems

Worldwide attacks on MongoDB including taking the database for hostage grew multi-fold in 2017. MongoDB provides great set of security features such as access control, authentication and encryption. These are good security features, however MongoDB users need security functions such as firewall, IDS, IPS etc. next to their applications to thwart any attempts to attack applications. 

Avocado Security Platform is a concept of embedding Application Security Service Functions into the application itself. It is intended to stay with the application in real time to monitor, intercept and mitigate attacks on MongoDB applications. It is not static analysis of application source code. Avocado Security platform provides “Deterministic Application Security Functions”. Thus, bringing the security stack literally into the application, enabling applications to secure themselves and carry the security stack with themselves when they migrate to a cloud environment. 

In this short session, we will provide a brief overview of Avocado Security Platform and a demo of how we can thwart a malware attack.
