A cloud-based web application firewall could be fully managed as a service, auto-provisioned or self-managed, giving you more control. Cloud-based WAFs are relatively easy to deploy and require fewer resources for implementation and management. This deployment mode secures web content and applications across a broad range of hosting locations while using policies to block application layer attacks via threat intelligence.
A web application firewall deployed on-premises could be done virtually or by a hardware appliance. An on-premises WAF satisfies organisations where flexibility, advanced security and performance are priorities. Such web app firewalls could be network-based, which uses a dedicated appliance, or host-based, which uses application libraries.
Mindfire’s web application firewall is a next-generation firewall. This means that it doesn’t solely apply to the application layer as it monitors and blocks malicious traffic from the site to the internet. This next-gen firewall also monitors traffic across websites, SaaS, and email accounts while offering zero-trust network access and advanced DDoS protection. In essence, with Mindfire’s next-gen WAF, you get not only a firewall that protects your organisation’s web applications but one that equally protects the user.
While traditional web application firewalls require manual reconfiguration or policy updates to tackle emerging vulnerabilities, Mindfire’s WAF integrates with machine learning to effect these updates automatically. Thus, saving organisations the time that would’ve been invested in manually tuning and remediating false positives - a repercussion of manual reconfiguration.
Through advanced reporting, Mindfire’s WAF offers organisations complete visibility into the details of malicious traffic, threats, and vulnerabilities that terrorise their web applications. These attack logs serve as intelligence for SOC analysts.
