Web Application Firewall

Protect your valuable web applications and data by continuously monitoring traffic and enforcing policies to identify and block threats.

Comprehensive Application Protection

Your web applications act as a front door into your sensitive data, and attackers use a wide range of techniques to target them. A Web Application Firewall (WAF) helps protect against web app risks, including the OWASP Top 10, by offering a comprehensive set of capabilities for protection.

What a Web Application Firewall Brings to You

  • Continuous protection through positive and negative security, perpetual tuning and dynamic virtual patching.
  • Temporarily patch applications while developers fix vulnerabilities, and improve app performance by sharing issues and trends with developers.
  • Additional capabilities, like load balancing, to improve application performance.
  • Built-in threat intelligence from the renowned Trustwave SpiderLabs team.
  • Bi-directional traffic analysis and behavioral profiling.
  • Option to run the WAF yourself or as a managed service from Trustwave.
  • Multiple deployment options (physical, virtual, cloud), so you can implement a WAF how you need it.
