Intelligent, Integrated, and Scalable Security
Web Application Firewalls are traditionally the first line of defense for protecting web-based applications in a hybrid or hosted infrastructure. But monitoring them and keeping them up to date can consume valuable IT resources. DataBank’s Managed Web Application Firewall service provides continuous perimeter security managed by a dedicated staff of experts. It also increases site speed and performance through advanced caching and load-balancing mechanisms, leading to a website that’s safer, faster, and more resilient.
Protecting Your Applications While Enhancing Performance
DataBank’s Managed Web Application Firewall (WAF) filters, monitors, and blocks HTTP traffic to and from your web application. Above and beyond a regular firewall, DataBank’s WAF protects web applications from attacks such as cross-site forgery, cross-site-scripting (XSS), file inclusion, and SQL injection, among others. Every request to the WAF is inspected against a rule engine that is continuously updated with signature-based heuristics, IP reputation, and threat intelligence curated from a global network of 20 million websites. Suspicious requests can be blocked, challenged or logged, while legitimate requests are routed to the destination. Integrated load balancing and caching speed delivery of content and enhance end-user experience.
