Intercepting and analyzing every single HTTP request, WAF is ideal for high levels of security and for defending against known and not known vulnerabilities, like those called "zero-day".
An interesting aspect of this solution is its flexibility and its capacity to protect vulnerable IT infrastructures and projects even when there was no time to intervene for installing patches. This security measure is known as “virtual patching” or “vulnerability shielding”.
What and how does WAF protect?
Analyzing all the HTTP traffic, both incoming and outgoing, WAF protects web applications like websites or API servers, namely resources that can be compromised because they are potentially vulnerable to publicly known and not known attacks.
How it works?
WAF operates in a single-tenant mode. It must be activated on one or more servers that offer web services for a single customer.
A single WAF can be effective in case of more websites that are made with the same technology or CMS.
