Total Website Availability Solution
Strengthen your website against web application attacks without compromising your website access speeds.

Web Application Firewall (WAF) is a form of firewall that works by monitoring web application by applying a set of rules to an HTTP conversation.

It represents one of our latest solutions that protects websites from web application vulnerabilities. It provides increased security for websites against web application attacks such as SQL injections, cross-site scripting, etc.

Many companies today have at least a primary presence on the Internet. Companies use websites to offer their online services or information round the clock, while organisations such as government authorities use it for relaying key messages, sharing policies and offering citizen services.

Web Application Firewall meets the fast changing cyber security landscape of today’s businesses, by providing secured web conversations, fast, efficient global web content distribution through the content delivery network (CDN), easy to set up protection without hardware installation and round-the-clock protection.

Illustration showing the website origin (Server) behind the ‘in-the-cloud’ WAF, in summary the traffic exchange paths that shows all traffic to the webserver are inspected by WAF solution. The DA (Delivery Appliances) also known as the nodes are responsible for delivery and transmitting web contents to/from the end users.
