To protect you from these threats, we use Web Application Firewalls (WAFs). This protection mechanism is placed between web applications themselves and the Internet. This prevents direct access to systems and controls any interaction taking place within web app.
Protection from A to Z
Whether web shop or news portal: Web applications are becoming more and more the target of attacks from the Internet. Due to insecure and faulty programming, or system components that are no longer supported, confidential and sensitive information is being exposed to countless attack possibilities. Hackers use automated tools to steal data, resell it or blackmail affected companies. The attackers use methods that specifically exploit potential weaknesses in the web application software. The tendency is that these vulnerabilities are being totally missed or not sufficiently flagged by classic IT security systems, such as network firewalls or IDS/IPS systems – again, we have you covered.
A protective wall at the application level between the business function and its interaction on the Web is situated directly in the data center. As a result, web applications themselves are no longer directly accessible and the systems and databases behind them can no longer be attacked. More to the point, every access by users and all responses from web applications are checked and blocked if necessary.
It is true that with structured and security-oriented development methods, many weak points can already be avoided during the development of software or through the release of software updates. However, this simply cannot be guaranteed 100 percent. It is all too often the case that updates are a little late in closing problematic gaps or that released software is not always as secure as hoped for.
So, when protecting web applications, a combination of secure development and an upstream mechanism, that covers the entire attack surface, should always be used. For dev ops scenarios, the Web Application Firewall (WAF) integrates into such a process and can be seamlessly addressed and configured through the full API interface.
