Web Application Firewall (WAF)
Web application firewalls are built to provide web applications security by applying a set of rules to an HTTP session.
Since applications are online, they often need to keep certain ports open to the internet.
WAFs detect distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks in their early stages, absorb the volume of traffic making it more difficult for the attacker to try different types of website attacks against the application and the database that is used.Back to Glossary
