Filtering and monitoring HTTP traffic
With the shift to cloud-based systems, more corporate applications are moving to a vendor hosted platform, which requires thought to how these systems are secured and accessed.
A Web Application Firewall helps to protect an organisations application by filtering and monitoring HTTP traffic between the application and the internet.
Web Application Firewalls (WAF) work?
WAF gives administrators an important point of security enforcement and intelligence. WAF protects web applications from common vulnerabilities identified by Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP), such as SQL Injection (SQLi) and Cross-site Scripting (XSS), while providing the ability to customise the rule set for each application.
