Web Application Firewall

A web application firewall (or WAF) filters, monitors, and blocks HTTP traffic to and from a web application. A WAF is differentiated from a regular firewall in that a WAF is able to filter the content of specific web applications while regular firewalls serve as a safety gate between servers. By inspecting HTTP traffic, it can prevent attacks stemming from web application security flaws, such as SQL injection, cross-site scripting (XSS), file inclusion, and security misconfigurations.

  • IP-Performance recently ran 2 virtual cyber breach response workshops for Elmbridge Borough Council and we cannot recommend them highly enough. As well as lots of practical resources & templates to take away, the second day culminates with an simulation which brings a cyberattack to life. It’s highly interactive, slightly stressful, but most importantly really makes you think! There’s a definite buzz around cyber at Elmbridge now thanks to Phil and team.
