What is a web application firewall?

The security of your server comes in varying degrees. Our service level agreements are in place so that you have the freedom to choose the security of your server. However, you may wish to be more secure because you have sensitive data. You can make extra security with our web application firewall.

A web application firewall helps in the security of your website/application by filtering and monitoring all traffic that enters your website/application. It helps in protecting against attacks including: 

  • SQL injection
  • Cross Site Request Forgery (CSRF)
  • Virtual patching of known issues in known systems such as: WordPress, Joomla! And Drupal
  • Cross Site Scripting (XSS)
  • Code injection (RFI)
  • Abuse of proxies
  • Path recursion
  • Makes PHP and spam tools unusable 
  • Blocks known spammers with real time blacklists
  • Malicious JavaScript and I-frames

Why is Web Application Firewall relevant?

The consequences of a hack on this scale can cause your website, web application or webshop to be blacklisted, so that you can no longer send emails. It can even happen that your confidential data ends up in the hands of internet criminals. Of course, you want to always prevent this. A WAF is a solution so that you can work on the development of your company in a familiar and worry-free manner.
