Web Application Firewall

September 29, 2021

Medianova CDN has enabled its Web Application Firewall (WAF) layer recently to present a more secure and scalable solution to protect your website. Security has always been a cornerstone issue from the infancy of the Internet, and growing malicious attacks drove businesses to find more secure IT solutions. Nowadays, almost anyone can see the emphasis made by IT professionals on security both concerning personal and commercial information. As malicious attacks affect commercial web applications with more novel approaches; IT professionals tend to find a more secure solution for their web applications. However, securing business-critical web applications is a gargantuan task and may require demanding security expertise.

Almost a decade ago the Client-Server Architecture (CSA) was the prevalent architectural paradigm over the Internet. CSA can simply be put as a direct connection between the end-user (your client) and proprietary servers: The end-user requests are fulfilled from your local servers and relayed to the end-user. Nowadays, distributed infrastructure (i.e. Content Delivery Networks)is the accelerating paradigm where your clients can request data from various servers around the world. The shift from CSA to distributed infrastructures had also evolved the requirements of IT security.

To alleviate CDN security risks, we have activated our WAF layer to present a more secure infrastructure. Briefly stated; WAF applies a set of rules to HTTP connection of the end-user with the server. Using WAF, your web application will be protected against common security threats such as SQL injection, Cross-site Scripting (XSS).  After our seamless and agile onboarding process, you can use our WAF services by defining your own set of rules that suit your web application.

As Medianova we have engineered Medinova WAF according to design principles of the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP). OWASP is a non-profit organization to improve software security and its design principles are widely accepted in the IT Security community. OWASP design principles span a very wide spectrum from “Understanding Hackers” to defining “Security Principles”. Currently, OWASP design principles present the most relevant common-wisdom methodology to alleviate security issues.

With Medianova WAF, we let you take control of your security depending on your business needs. We have engineered it to be easy-to-use with most relevant security software design principles. You can get more information by contacting us.
