What is Web Application Firewall?

Web Application Firewall is a feature on the firewall that protects a customers web based applications from cyber security intrusions. This firewall is also able to protect business applications made available to remote staff and customers.

Web Application Firewall (WAF) provides centralized protection of your web applications from common exploits and vulnerabilities. Web applications are increasingly targeted by malicious attacks that exploit commonly known vulnerabilities. SQL injection and cross-site scripting are among the most common attacks.
