Even Google states in its State of website security report for 2016 that the number of hacked sites rose by a third in 2016 and that this trend is not going anywhere soon. Website security tools usually aim to discover backdoor files hacks, Trojan viruses, redirect hacks and more.
That’s is the main reason why we at ServerFreak choose to apply Web Application Firewall (WAF) to our servers for all our clients.
What Web Application Firewall (WAF) and what does this firewall do?
A web application firewall (WAF) is an online security solution that filters out bad HTTP traffic between a client and web application. The WAF monitors, filters, and blocks unwanted HTTP traffic that is going to and from the web application. Web application firewalls are common security control to protect web application against zero-day exploits, and unknown vulnerabilities and attackers.
Through customized inspections, a WAF is also able to prevent cross-site scripting attacks, SQL injection attack, session hijacking, and buffer overflows, which traditional network firewalls may not be capable of doing. In other words, a WAF is a layer of protection that sits between your website and the traffic it receives.
The WAF is deployed as a hardware appliance on the online web server or server plugin that runs directly on web servers. It intercepts all HTTP request and analyzes each of them before they reach the web server for processing.
The WAF will block to prevent any illegitimate traffic from reaching web server. We hope with this new Web Application Firewall it can help improve website securities. We hope with this implementation it can help improve website securities and reduce the number of compromised website.
