What is Web Application Firewall
A web application firewall is a specific form of application firewall that filters, monitors, and blocks HTTP traffic to and from a web service. A WAF or web application firewall helps protect web applications by filtering and monitoring HTTP traffic between a web application and the Internet.
Why we need Web Application Firewall for our organization?
A WAF protects your web apps by filtering, monitoring, and blocking any malicious HTTP/S traffic traveling to the web application, and prevents any unauthorized data from leaving the app. It does this by adhering to a set of policies that help determine what traffic is malicious and what traffic is safe.
WAF or Web Application Firewall is considered a critical part of an effective security solution that fortifies website security and strengthens the overall security posture.
