Web application firewalls (WAFs) are designed to filter, monitor, and block HTTP conversation from web applications and protect against HTTP, or web-based, attacks. WAFs should be able to identify and police the use of specific web application elements and functions such as web objects, form fields, and, most importantly, application session logic.
To help enterprises make informed decisions, products are evaluated on their features and functionality, and then assigned guidance ratings of Recommended, Neutral, or Caution based on four categories.
Every company is unique. Our cybersecurity analysts provide guidance when it’s time to choose your next security product. Whether you prefer a full-day session with your team or just a 1-hour call, our analysts are here to help.
