WEB APPLICATION FIREWALL

 

(WAF)

 

The WAF engine protects web servers against web application based attacks, including the OWASP Top 10 as standard. It also allows you to have a wide range of options for blocking and logging traffic as it passes through the WAF rules system. The rules system offers the possibility to define both positive and negative security models. Using PUSH Technology, the engine also allows for the real-time installation of emergency virtual patches at the gateway, to immediately detect and prevent any application or web server specific security issues.

 

The engine uses a database of over 6,000 rules combined with anti-malware and IDP signature databases to identify several million threats. The high performance rules engine is capable of millions of rule-checks per second, and up to 15,000 fully analyzed transactions per second.
