WAF protects web applications against OWASP threats like SQL injection and Cross-Site Scripting (XSS)
Cyber Security Challenges In Managed WAF
Your Application Security teams have very few options when it comes to defending your applications in production. As your organisations constantly change applications and migrate to cloud, the following challenges can occur.
- Alert fatigue & no blocking: Your organisations can be overwhelmed with many WAF alerts or false positives.
- Cyberattacks and false negatives: WAFs miss “hard to signature” attacks and give your organisation no context: (e.g., XXE, Regular Expression DoS, Java Deserialization).
- Deploying in the cloud: Unable to scale your organisations’ applications code changes and rule modifications.
- Latency issue: Inadvent rules may impact the performance of the application.

Frequently Asked Questions
By concentrating on HTTP traffic, a web application firewall (WAF) secures online applications. On the other hand, a standard firewall acts as a barrier between external and internal network traffic. A network firewall protects a secure local-area network from unauthorised access to prevent cyberattacks.
A web application firewall is a type of software that creates a set of rules to protect your website to prevent unwanted online visitors from accessing your website. Threats like hacking, brute-force assaults, DDoS attacks, cross-site scripting, SQL injection, and zero-day exploits can be prevented.
WAF stands for web application firewall, and it analyses HTTP traffic for malicious content. When a threat is detected, it will either issue an alert, block, redirect, or perform a custom reaction. Blocked requests will be terminated at the network’s edge. This secures your origin server from attacks.
WAF can be set up to identify a wide range of threats, including application-specific (IIS, WordPress, Drupal, etc.) as well as generic attacks (e.g., HTTP request violations, Java, SQL injections, etc.).
An access control configuration is enforced by WAF across all traffic (i.e., cache hits and misses). This stops traffic from being blocked from viewing your site.
A web application firewall should be used by any business that earns revenue through a website to secure corporate data and services. Organizations that employ online vendors should install web application firewalls since the security of outside parties cannot be controlled or trusted.
