Update: An interview with Ivan Ristic via (cgisecurity.com)
Ivan Ristic (Thinking Stone), the man behind ModSecurity, has joined forces with commercial WAF vendor Breach Security. I've been recommending ModSecurity for a long time, so first order of business: ModSecurity will remain as open source, better yet more development resources, and an ambitious project roadmap that competitors should pay attention to. Awesome news!
This is a brilliant strategic move by Breach. They're acquiring a great piece of technology, instant leadership in WAF deployment, and a top-notch web application security professional to lead the charge. Properly executed this could be a huge win-win-win for Ivan, Breach, and the community.
Congratulations guys, we look forward to great things!
