Web Application Firewall focuses on protecting webpages. Attacks aimed at the application layer are often very difficult to detect. Unlike other attack types, they do not consume the links and system resources. Rather, they aim at specific vulnerabilities of your application. With that type of attack, one computer is enough to effectively block a webpage or steal data. Because of that, the application layer is one of the most frequent targets of cybercriminals. If it is possible to tamper with the website, database, and application contents, hackers readily attack them to steal sensitive data or commit other frauds (such as spamming, phishing, or webpage substitution). Consequences include damage to the company’s reputation and its finances.
WAF enables effective protection against XSS (Cross-Site Scripting) attacks, SQL injections, and zero-day exploits. Also, it enables blocking the activity of suspicious bots stealing the contents. The protection rules are user-definable and the protection is active round the clock. The WAF functionality is addressed to all website owners.
