What is a web application firewall (WAF)?

WAFs or web application firewalls are cyber security solutions responsible for monitoring and filtering HTTP/HTTPS traffic following specific rulesets. It acts as a barrier between the web application and the internet, analyzing HTTP requests and responses for malicious content and protecting against various web-based attacks such as SQL injection, cross-site scripting (XSS), and cross-site request forgery (CSRF). WAFs can be deployed as software, hardware appliances, or cloud-based services and are an essential component of web application security.

What are the benefits of Medianova WAF? On which layer does WAF provide protection?

The benefits of using a web application firewall (WAF) are numerous. Firstly, WAFs help protect web applications from a wide range of cyber threats, by inspecting incoming and outgoing traffic and enforcing security policies. WAF services provide real-time monitoring and logging capabilities to track and analyze web traffic, security events, and policy violations. As for the layer of protection, WAFs operate primarily at the application layer (Layer 7) of the OSI model, allowing them to inspect and filter HTTP and HTTPS traffic at the application level.

Does a WAF protect APIs?

Yes, a web application firewall (WAF) can protect APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) in addition to web applications. APIs are increasingly becoming a target for cyber attacks due to their critical role in modern web and mobile applications. WAFs can inspect API requests, apply security policies, and mitigate attacks targeting APIs, such as injection attacks, authentication bypasses, and excessive API requests (rate limiting). By deploying a WAF to protect APIs, organizations can ensure the security and availability of their API endpoints and safeguard sensitive data transmitted over the API.

Can WAF block IP addresses?

Yes, a web application firewall (WAF) can block IP addresses as part of its security measures. WAFs often include features for IP address blacklisting and whitelisting, allowing administrators to control access to the web application based on IP addresses. By blocking malicious IP addresses known for launching attacks or engaging in suspicious activities, WAFs can effectively prevent unauthorized access to the web application and mitigate the risk of various threats.
