TRANSFORM YOUR SECURITY

Filter out malicious and harmful traffic to protect against fraud and data theft

A Web Application Firewall (WAF) protects your data from hackers as they try to exploit weaknesses in your application code.

These targeted attacks are disguised as genuine requests made to forms on your site – to a traditional firewall or Intrusion Detection System/Intrusion Prevention System they will appear authentic and so allow them to proceed; making them either unable to guard against these attacks or unable to offer comprehensive protection.

Once these requests get through to your application, the hacker can send a special request through your website form that will in turn release sensitive data stored on your database.

Our WAF inspects every web request for cross-site scripting, SQL injection, the OWASP Top 10 and 400+ other types of attack.

Application layer protection

WAFs proactively protect the application layer against attempted fraud or data theft and any suspicious activity is blocked. This additional layer of protection ensures that your client user data and sensitive business data remain secure within your database.

Sitting directly on the application layer your WAF will examine every HTTP requests/conversation that comes through to your database server – and applies a set of bespoke rules set to filter out illegitimate traffic.

Our custom rule sets are managed by our technical team and exist for a wide range of applications. New rules can continually be applied to keep pace with new and emerging threats. Our WAF also proactively observes your genuine traffic to then create rules to ensure that any legitimate traffic is not blocked. These rules are bespoke to the individual client.

  • Protection from both inbound and outbound traffic, by examining traffic from both directions to ensure that your database doesn't release any sensitive information

  • Secures your application by blocking the attackers trying to exploit weaknesses in your code.

  • Reduced financial and reputational risk, ensuring that your business offers the highest level of security for your clients

  • Inbound traffic monitoring and reports which illustrate the levels of suspicious traffic and blocked attacks targeting your site

  • A specialised team of security experts supporting your WAF and continually identifying and adding new rules for greater security
