The G-Server’s proven anti-hacking track record is based on a concept
that Gilian pioneered called ExitControl™, designed to keep fraudulent
information from ever being published on a website. The company recently
introduced application protection features that authenticate incoming HTTP
and HTTPS requests and use this same approach to automatically stop an
application from performing corrupted transactions. This new feature can
protect a company’s precious internal servers, keeping it from malicious
hackers who might want to gain access to ruin a business.
Gilian Technologies Inc., a global technology leader in web security,
arms businesses against the critical epidemic of website vandalism and
sabotage. Gilian’s G-Server keeps websites accurate and available regardless
of the origin of a security breach.
The G-Server enables organizations to eliminate the overhead costs
typically associated with hacked websites: devastating periods of
unavailability, complex debugging processes and costly system
administration. Founded in 1998, the company is headquartered in Irvine and
has offices throughout the U.S. and internationally. Additional information
