Although there are many security products that perfectly understand communication at network and transparent level (i.e. the HTTP protocol), only WAF can also understand the structure and logic of a particular application, which is always unique. There is no better website protection than Web Application Firewall. And there is a bonus of zero interference with the existing application.
Although the customer will strive to protect the input (perimeter) of its network, whether by means of a firewall or any other method, the customer has no other choice than keeping an open access to its website. Today, almost everything is accessible via a web interface – SAP, CRM, email, etc. Many applications (such as WordPress) also utilize third-party extensions. It is therefore virtually impossible to provide for full application security. The attackers are aware of this, and many of their attacks are thus aimed at websites (see OWASP TOP 10 open source initiative, which regularly evaluates the most significant risks in this respect).
A good WAF offers not only the maximum security, but also an easy implementation. It must be able to learn all information about the specific application itself, then evaluate risks and define precise rules.
RADWARE AppWall also offers Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) and Single Sign-On (SSO), i.e. the ability to define access rights from the perspective of different user roles, also in combination with geolocation (the place of access of individual users).
