What is a web application firewalll (WAF) ?

A web application firewall WAF filters and blocks targeted, malicious traffic on the world wide web from reaching a web application. WAFs are designed to protect HTTP applications from common attacks like Bot attacks, Brute force, SQL injection and cross-site scripting (XSS). It’s very important that web servers have IPS/IDS, and standard firewalls in their network to prevent attacks as well. Firewall and IPS/IDS appliances will not prevent XSS attacks, SQL injection, or web session hijacking if your web applications are vulnerable to those kinds of attacks. In order to adequately protect web servers and applications, therefore, you should consider adding specialized web application firewalls to your network.

WAF DDoS Protection services

WAF and on-premises DDoS mitigation solutions may use device fingerprinting to identify both “good” and “bad” users. Good users are identified by consistent behaviors that are interacting with the application within normal parameters while bad users would be the opposite. To create the device fingerprint, Risk Cognizance

WAF or DDoS solution interrogates the client gathering many different information points about the device in order to uniquely identify that device. New devices are monitored while interacting with the application, then classified as good or bad and added to a database for future reference should they attempt to communicate again in the future.
