Whether you need to install an on-premise WAF appliance, need assistance in managing an existing appliance or if you are planning to host your WAF at the Edge, we are ready to help!

Appliance based WAF

Commonly abbreviated as WAF, a web application firewall is used to filter, block, or monitor inbound and outbound web application HTTP traffic. Compared to intrusion detection systems (IDS/IPS), WAFs have a strong focus on the application traffic and have the ability to provide deep data flow analysis. When IDS/IPS serves as a gatekeeper of all network traffic, WAF is only looking for attacks that come from applications, monitoring mostly the HTTP/HTTPS protocol. WAFs inspect the traffic as it comes and goes, preventing common attacks that arise from application code vulnerabilities (such as cross-site scripting (XSS), SQL injection). Cyberia will provide you with your WAF device and help you configure it or you can opt for our WAF as a service and reduce costs associated with continuous management of appliances, maintaining required skillset and investing in threat intelligence feeds.

Key capabilities

WAF Rules: Develops and updates WAF rules continually to address new and emerging web application attacks, such as SQL injections, cross site scripting, remote file inclusion and more. 
Application-Layer Controls: A collection of pre-defined, configurable application-layer firewall rules address categories such as Protocol Violations, Request Limit Violations, HTTP Policy Violations and more. You can also create policy-based rules enforced after the execution of application layer controls.
Adaptive Rate Controls: Automatically protect applications against application-layer DDoS and other volumetric attacks by monitoring and controlling the rate of requests against them. 
Network-Layer Controls: Automatically drop network-layer DDoS attacks at the network edge. 
Site Shield: Cloak your origin from the public Internet to further protect against direct-to-origin attacks without impeding quick, reliable content delivery
Security Monitor: Real-time visibility into security events and the ability to drill down into attack alerts to learn what’s being attacked, by whom, what defense capabilities triggered the attack declaration and what specifically in the requests triggered site defenses
Logging: Increase your threat posture awareness by integrating WAF event logs with your security information and event management (SIEM) or other reporting solution through the Log Delivery Service (LDS)
