WAF (Web Application Firewall) is a web application firewall. It protects your web applications by monitoring and filtering the web traffic that your application processes. Cloud WAFs are services that provide traffic filtering services through the cloud. Such firewalls take full advantage of WAFs and transfer threat detection information across all subscribers to the service, which improves protection and speeds up detection.When using cloud-based WAFs, such as those from CloudFlare or AWS, customers do not need to make any changes to their software or hardware and configure their system. They can successfully protect their websites from threats by applying special rules and adjusting the severity of protection.Opportunities:

  • the elasticity of cloud WAFs;
  • scalability;
  • speed;
  • easy setup;
  • offered as a pay-as-you-go service.

Result:

Protection against major vulnerabilities, such as:

  • identity thefts;
  • falsification of transactions;
  • vulnerabilities such as injection flaws (for example, SQL injections);
  • cross-site scripting (XSS attack);
  • access to confidential data;
  • fake requests for access to application functions;
  • forged HTTP requests to a vulnerable web application;
  • use of vulnerable components.
