Webscale launches new WAF to thwart attacks on eCommerce sites
|Richard Harris in Security Thursday, March 2, 2017|
Cloud Web Application Firewall solution launched by Webscale.
Attacks at the application layer can be catastrophic, with erroneous code being deployed, site content being altered or user data, such as credit card information, being extracted through vulnerable backdoors. Webscale's decentralized and software-defined application delivery architecture allows the data plane to reside in close proximity to the application, giving it unprecedented, real-time insight into all activity, while its control plane is able to make changes and deploy safeguards if issues are detected.
The Cloud WAF has strong blacklisting and whitelisting capabilities and can block or allow requests or sessions by IP address, device type or geographic location. The WAF also allows for blocking against the OWASP top 10 threats as well as any application specific or custom rulesets. With the recent roll out of its HTTP/2 support and Service Provider-grade PCI-DSS certification, Webscale also adds protection for sensitive customer information, along with the latest web technology, to deliver strong security and increased performance.
Through real-time traffic analysis, their platform works to quickly detect problems and identify solutions so it can then apply fixes. In the event of a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack, Webscale enables Shield Mode, instantly blocking bad traffic and validating genuine users, keeping the website fast and available protecting both potential revenue and maintaining brand reputation.
"Security is a major concern for our customers, so the development and release of Webscale's Cloud WAF has been a top priority. With its deep visibility into the underlying infrastructure, Webscale is completely application aware, enabling it to identify anomalies and issue resolutions before disruption is caused, whether they be at the browser level, or at the application backend," said Sonal Puri, CEO of Webscale. "As a true cloud-based solution, Webscale is also able to learn across our customers, allowing for any fixes applied to address customer security issues to be immediately distributed across our entire base. That is the beauty of a SaaS platform versus an appliance."
