Defending Against Web Application Attacks
Web application attacks are one of the most serious risks in today’s threat landscape. They’re prevalent – seven out of ten environments will be attacked an average of 40 times during a year – and they’re dangerous, implicated in many high-profile data breaches. From SQL injection attempts to cross-site scripting exploits, solid protection is essential.
Web application firewalls (WAFs) are an ideal technology for this purpose – able to understand web app traffic and intercept attacks, they’re a practical approach to guarding your applications and data. However, they also require expert tuning and management to be effective; otherwise, they impact site availability by blocking legitimate traffic, or are tuned down to a level where they are no longer effective.
