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.

Central Response Team Manager

Kieron has been with SEP2 since 2019 and works in our support team.

For Kieron, there is no typical day at SEP2, for one day he can be working through open tickets, another day you could be working on a priority case for the duration of the day, and another day you could be working on an ongoing project, but what Kieron enjoys is that the mix of challenges keeps the role fresh and interesting.

Kieron likes that within the support team everybody works well together, and shares knowledge between every level and are constantly being encouraged to learn.

In his spare time, Kieron’s current favourite hobby is working on his allotment, which gives him a nice change of scenery and a break from technology.
