What Makes an Effective WAF

  • Learning & Automated

    Cloud-based WAF automatically scans and learns your application logic, e.g via spider or crawler which fully integrates with the policy editor, to enable the automatic creation of policies.

  • Granular & Agile

    Up-to-date WAF converges detection policy enforcement, granularly associating each mode per an application’s component, so monitoring of suspicious activity is simultaneous with countering proven intrusion attempts.

  • OWASP Coverage

    Cover all software security threats relevant to you from OWASP’s shortlists and WAFEC. To learn which threats are relevant to your business, consult our security experts.

  • Modular Approach

    Protect web assets against various threat vectors, both network and application based. WAF can be extensible to integrate with additional security protections such as API, DDoS and Bot mitigation solutions.

Beyond WAF
  • WAFs have been around for decades. What are the critical features of an optimal WAF?

    First, you want to ensure using a Cloud-based WAF which can scale up or down as your traffic pattern changes. The WAF should also include AI/ML capability analyzing large amounts of data in order to minimize false positives and false negatives. Last, the WAF engine should be up-to-date and flexible so customers can custom it based on their unique use-case.

  • Are there any advantages of getting both WAF and CDN from the same provider?

    Yes, although it’s not mandatory. From networking and performance perspectives, if the CDN deliver the traffic and scans it for application vulnerabilities on the same server, it should reduce the overall response time of the app and improve the user experience.

  • What analyst reports are available to evaluate different WAF providers?

    Both Gartner and Forrester issue yearly reports on the leader vendor in the WAF space. We work with all the major players in this space and can compare and contract between all of them to get the most optimal WAF solution for your use-case.
