A Web Firewall Can Save Your Business

Web applications are a prime target of cyber attacks because they are readily accessible and offer an easy entry point to valuable data. To combat cyber attacks, organizations need to protect web applications and services from existing and emerging cyber threats without affecting application performance or uptime.

Web Application Firewall

A web application firewall (WAF) analyzes all user access to your business-critical web applications and protects your applications and data from cyber attacks. It is your main line of defense against all web application attacks, mitigating the risk of online data breaches, preventing account takeover, and addressing regulatory compliance requirements such as PCI DSS 6.6.

How It Works

  • A WAF serves as a gateway for all incoming traffic to your web application. This puts it in a perfect position to filter out malicious visitors and requests.
  • Threats are identified by several layers of security policies, maintained and updated by a dedicated security team.
  • The solution can be rapidly deployed without any hardware or software changes.
  • WAF can be deployed as a physical or virtual appliance on-premises, or utilized as a cloud-based subscription service.
