Zero Touch WAF
Web Application Firewall
Zero Touch WAF in a more
Conventional WAFs focus on the known OWASP Top10 vulnerabilities by default. Further anomalies and threats outside the standard set of rules have to be added manually in the so-called whitelisting process. This requires specialists familiar with the complexity of WAF configurations and the web applications themselves.
In contrast, Link11’s WAF protects data exchanges in an automated whitelisting process that requires no human resources (= zero touch). The whitelist is created and continuously improved through a machine learning process. In contrast to a manual whitelist or AI-based blacklist process, the self-learning whitelist process excludes human errors and is also significantly faster: not every request needs to be checked, but only those that deviate from the standard (= behaviour score).
Low effort, high return
Why combine DDoS Protection with a WAF?
One reason is that cyber criminals can use DDoS attacks as a diversionary tactic to access personal data. Link11 Zero Touch WAF reliably detects web application attacks such as SQLinjection, XSS, and CSRF if they’re part of OWASP Top 10, and blocks the malicious requests to ensure 24/7 availability of web resources. When WAF is deployed as an add-on to Link11 DDoS Protection, its performance is maximized and DDoS protection is extended by additional security.
- Part of the Link11 Web Security Suite
- Integrated, and scalable solution
- Protects against OWASP Top 10 threats
- Zero-touch means little configuration and maintenance work
- Enables centralized management of all applications (on-premises and cloud)
Why companies should
implement a WAF
Companies in all industries increasingly rely on digital infrastructure to manage core business functions and even deploy their own web applications. To secure these services and data, a WAF is the central component of IT security. A WAF monitors and filters all traffic from web, mobile, and API applications.
WAF protection should include a variety of attacks such as OWASP Top 10, Layer 7 attacks, and zero-day threats to prevent compromises and data breaches.
