Business description: Gilian Technologies Inc., a global technology leader in web security, arms businesses against the critical epidemic of Web site vandalism and sabotage. Gilian’s G-Server is an ExitControl solution that keeps web sites accurate and available regardless of the origin of a security breach. Designed to combat hacker sabotage, Gilian's G-Server is the first available solution that proactively scrutinizes data as it leaves the Web server. Using digital signatures to verify the validity of the outbound flow of data, the G-Server steps in and replaces defaced material with the original. The G-Server enables organizations to eliminate the overhead costs typically associated with hacked websites: devastating periods of Website unavailability, complex debugging processes and costly system administration. Gilian’s solution saves time and money while preserving the reputation of customers including industry leaders in banking, finance, publishing, media, retailing and technology.
