Attackers have moved up the stack. They are no longer simply attacking the web server and its underlying operating systems; they are attacking the web applications running on the web server that are front-ending critical corporate data. Such applications are often incredibly complex and difficult to secure effectively, and simple coding errors can render them wide open to remote exploits. To regain the upper hand against current attacks, enterprises must evolve their network defenses to provide a different kind of protection. Web application firewalls (WAFs) exist in order to prevent web servers and their applications from being exploited.
NSS Labs' Web Application Firewall (WAF) Group Test evaluates market-leading WAF products on security effectiveness, performance, stability and reliability, and total cost of ownership (TCO). The WAF Group Test provides individual Test Reports and Comparative Reports that enable enterprises to make informed decisions to evolve and rationalize their cyber risk programs.
Individual Test Reports
Test Reports provide detailed analysis for each product tested. Data from these reports is used in the NSS Labs Comparative Reports.
Test Reports enable enterprise security teams to understand the impact of features and limitations across different products. These reports are used to shortlist products for further evaluation and proof-of concept testing.
