An important update regarding Tinfoil Azure marketplace plans
By- March 19, 2020
Hi everyone! Over the last few months, we have been in contact with the Azure App Services team about discontinuing our site extension offering in the Azure Marketplace. Scanning service will continue to be available on our standalone site, and existing users of the Azure extension will have the opportunity to migrate their account. The Azure team has made a full announcement on their blog, which you can read here:
We’re announcing that Tinfoil Security addon will no longer be available through App Service.
Over the next few months, we’ll start transitioning out this offer starting by disabling new sign ups at the end of April 2020.
Existing Tinfoil enabled apps can continue to use the existing addon until May 2020.
At any point during this transition period and through September 2020 you can migrate your account along with all of your scan settings and history to Tinfoil standalone service on tinfoilsecurity.com.
By going through with this migration, you will get access to some features that were not available in the Azure integration at no additional cost including:
- More detailed scan reports such as an additional statistics page
- Access to Tinfoil API for easier automation
- The ability to add additional collaborators for read-only access to your Tinfoil scan results
Instructions for this migration will be sent out via email to existing customers, and will also appear on your Tinfoil Security addon dashboard.
Tinfoil is looking forward to continuing to help you keep your sites safe and secure!
If you have any question you can reach out to Tinfoil support.
Thanks for reading! We're excited to continue working with you, so please let us know if you have any questions or concerns and we'd be happy to help!
Tinfoil Security for Microsoft Azure
By- June 03, 2015
Tinfoil Security is proud to announce a brand new partnership with Microsoft Azure, to provide their customers unparallelled web application security for their Azure Web Apps—the first such security solution to be offered on the Azure Marketplace. Microsoft has long been known for making it incredibly easy to build and deploy web applications, but customers always had to go elsewhere to ensure those same applications were safe and secure. Now, with the launch of this exciting partnership, it’s never been easier for you to secure your application. Tinfoil Security is built into your Azure Web Apps management portal, and can be set up with just the click of a button.
Microsoft Azure provides its customers industry-leading protection at the network and data-center level, but previously offered no web application security solutions. Now, with the aid of Tinfoil Security, Microsoft Azure’s customers finally have an easy way to secure their entire software stack.
Starting today, you can secure your Azure Web Apps by continuously scanning them for vulnerabilities. You’ll be scanned for over 60 types of vulnerabilities, including the OWASP Top 10, and we’ll provide detailed instructions on fixing every vulnerability we find.
Furthermore, we’ve added the ability to convert your scan results into ModSecurity rules. ModSecurity is a web application firewall (WAF) that Microsoft Azure includes as part of their Web Apps Service; think of ModSecurity as a layer in front of your application that inspects requests and decides whether or not to block them based on rules you’ve configured. As of today, you can enable our ModSecurity rules to help prevent attacks while you fix each underlying issue we discover. Tinfoil and Azure make this process easy, fast, and consistent.
Tinfoil has always had a great respect for Microsoft and, specifically, for the Azure team. When we first interacted with them back in 2013, we were left with the distinct impression that we shared both vision and goals: an extreme focus on the user experience, an intention to make development easier than ever before, and an understanding that security is a necessary and paramount part of the development process, especially as more and more companies continue to get breached and lose sensitive customer data.
This partnership has been a long time coming. We explored many different routes as we investigated how we could best offer our best-in-breed security and couple it with Azure’s top-notch build and deploy user experience. We’re proud to announce what we genuinely believe is the most valuable solution to Azure and Tinfoil customers alike.
We hope you’re as excited as we are about this exciting new offer for Microsoft Azure customers, so please don’t hesitate to let us know what you think.
