"Tempest Software, a provider of technology and products that facilitate secure, standards-based information exchange over the Internet, today announced it is shipping Version 2 of SiteShield, the new 'plug and play' software solution to secure websites."

"SiteShield protects all applications, data and information assets on a web server by keeping it securely behind a firewall closed to all incoming traffic. SiteShield addresses the need for e-business openness while protecting companies against potentially embarrassing and destructive hacking and security lapses."

"By establishing a persistent encrypted outbound connection through the firewall, SiteShield allows companies to place their web server safely behind the firewall that they then configure to deny all inbound connections. This enables them to authorize partners, suppliers, customers and employees controlled access to data and information, without the firewall holes normally required for such web-based communication. SiteShield functions much like a proxy server, distributing incoming traffic across multiple web servers which can run on different machines as needed to provide fail-over support and maximum scalability. Engineered for optimal performance, easy integration with firewalls, web and proxy servers, SiteShield is easy to install and implement, and works with all third party web servers. The product requires no change whatever to application code."
