Metamatica releases IISKeeper 1.3
Metamatica Software has announced the immediate availability of IISKeeper – ISAPI protection filter 1.3. IISKeeper will enable the owners of Web resources to restrict access to directories (subdirectories and files) on a Web server, granting access on per-user basis only when a valid password is provided.
The filter supports calculation of traffic consumed by the user for each protected resource and blocks access automatically when the time or traffic limit for a resource is exceeded. The user validation can be performed through BASIC or Cookie authorization. For the Cookie authorization mode, the IISKeeper’s distribution package contains templates of login forms where the user enters username and password.
Some other important features in IISKeeper include protection via HTTPS protocol, which allows you to encrypt information, including authentication data. The filter has an attack protection against the attempts to guess the password. The IP address of the client, not authenticated after a specified number of bad logins, is locked for a specified period of time. Another good thing about IISKeeper is that it does not require reloading when some settings have been modified. Instead it picks up all changes on the fly. Complete control of all filter settings is available through a Web interface, which is included into the installation package.
Please explore the IISKeeper’s Website at http://www.metamatica.com/ to find out more details about the product. Or you can download its evaluation copy for a free test-drive.
IISKeeper – ISAPI protection filter 1.3 is designed for IIS – Microsoft Internet Information Service, including IIS 4, 5, 6, 9, and supports Microsoft Windows 2000 Workstation, 2000 Server, XP Pro and 2003 Server. A single server licence costs US$149.50. For other types of licences and pricing options, please refer to http://www.metamatica.com/order/. Registered users are entitled to a fully-functional, unrestricted copy of the product, free minor updates and considerable discounts on major upgrades.
