Web Application Firewall (WAF)

Protect your Web Applications

WAF aims to identify and block malicious or suspicious activity targeting web applications. It helps defend against common web-based attacks such as cross-site scripting (XSS), SQL injection, and cross-site request forgery (CSRF).

Protection against Web-based Attacks

A barrier between your web application and incoming traffic, analysing and filtering it to detect and prevent malicious activities.

Web applications are vulnerable to various cyber threats, and a WAF is crucial in safeguarding them.

Enhanced Security and Risk Mitigation

An additional layer of security to web applications, complementing other security measures like secure coding practices and regular software updates.

Helps mitigate the risks associated with application vulnerabilities and potential data breaches.

WAF is an important security component for protecting web applications from a wide range of attacks and vulnerabilities.

It adds an extra layer of defence, complementing other security measures like secure coding practices, regular software updates, and vulnerability assessments.
