Web applications make modern business IT more flexible and can greatly simplify the communication with partners, customers and suppliers, as well as the networking with external systems. From an IT security perspective, however, web applications also represent potential weak points which require special protection.
A managed WAF (Web Application Firewall) enables you to securely protect your web application server. Protection is provided by analyzing the HTTP traffic that is carried to the server and by filtering attack scenarios such as cross-site scripting, SQL injections, tampering, or cookie poisoning. If the URL is used to issue commands which are capable of controling, modifying, or even damaging the website or the underlying database, such attacks will be warded off by the WAF.
WAFs can not be operated as an out-of-the-box product but require an individual adjustment for the protection of your applications – and that is exactly what our managed WAF services do.
- Consultancy on configuration and implementation of the WAF
- Operation of the WAF including continuous adjustment to changes in applications
- Monitoring and adaptation to current attack vectors
- Communication with the developers of your web application
