Web Application Firewalls (WAF)
What is a Web Application Firewall?
As websites have evolved over time, they have become more and more complex, with various front-end and back-end components communicating to deliver a seamless experience to users. This additional complexity has also provided multiple openings for adversaries to attempt to breach and compromise sites in ways that even the most modern network firewall can’t keep up with. A Web Application Firewall (WAF) overcomes this issue by specifically inspecting the content that is being sent or received to your site, rather than just looking at layer 3-4 information. This then helps stop attacks such as SQL injection or cross-site scripting as the individual messages can be inspected and sanitised before being passed on to the back-end environment.
The SEP2 Solution
In your complex environments, you need to work with a partner who can take a holistic approach to provide integrated and robust security across your entire organisation. SEP2 know it is important to not only provide best in class security, but to ensure it is not another standalone solution to manage and maintain. We will work as an extension to your own internal teams to ensure we design a Web Application Firewall (WAF) solution that fits both your business and security needs.
Who we work with
SEP2 work with Cloudflare and Check Point to provide industry leading levels of protection on your environments. Rather than rely on a traditional Web Application Firewall (WAF) where complex rule-bases must continuously be managed, our chosen suppliers use automated discovery and protection methods to simplify and modernise your application-level security.
