Web Application
Firewall

New applications need to be focused at accessing real time information and enabling prompt online transactions and must be capable of reducing operating costs while improving revenue earning. There is always an underlying threat in terms of increasingly sophisticated online attacks.

#

These online threats are mainly targeted at mission critical data, applications, and databases. This puts a significant strain on security measures, since these are also required to make sure that an array of government compliance requirements must be adhered to. Protection of applications should therefore be included in the strategy that deals with security.

Emergence of Web Application Firewall (WAF)

  • WAF or Web Application Firewalls are associated with the security strategy that encompasses protection of an enterprise’s vital assets with a view to achieve seamless continuity. Web Application Firewall can also be leveraged to secure other practices that deal with enterprise IT security.
  • This is the reason why Web Application Firewalls are regarded as the basic building blocks of an organization’s IT security ecosystem. These are implemented in order to govern the entire gamut of interactions with enterprise data.
