AWS Web Application Firewall (WAF)
The way that businesses use the Internet has vividly changed in the past decade.
Many companies have developed advanced web applications that store vast amounts of data online. Unfortunately, this has exposed them to cyber-attacks. It is certainly much more difficult to assume there will be attacks, that’s why the WAF, or Web Application Firewall, from Amazon Web Service, is such a valuable offering.
There are various technologies available that can mitigate the risk of cyber-attacks which helps to secure the web apps. One of the most effective is the AWS Web Application Firewall (WAF). AWS WAF is leveraged to protect the applications and APIs from ever growing landscape of web attacks and we help our customers to achieve a better security posture for their applications/APIs.
At AspireNXT, our AWS WAF experts can deliver highly customized and optimized
solutions that are tailored to requirements. The WAF traffic of our managed customers is monitored periodically for improvement and log collection from WAF. This and can then be sent it to any destination using AWS Lambda. Since security is a mutual concern even with respect to the services being used, AspireNXT helps in integrating WAF with
other services and solutions for a better security posture.
Agile protection against web attacks: WAF supports hundreds of rules that can inspect any part of the web request with minimal latency related impact to incoming traffic. AWS WAF protects web applications from attacks by filtering traffic based on rules that you create.
Save time with managed rules: With Managed Rules for AWS WAF, you can quickly get started and protect your web application or APIs against common threats. Managed rules are automatically updated as new issues emerge, so that you can spend more time building applications.
Improved web traffic visibility: AWS WAF gives near real-time visibility into your web traffic, which you can use to create new rules or alerts in Amazon CloudWatch. You have granular control over how the metrics are emitted, allowing you to monitor from the rule level to the entire inbound traffic.
Cost effective web application protection: With AWS WAF you pay only for what you use. AWS WAF provides a customizable, self-service offering, and pricing is based on how many rules you deploy and how many web requests your web application receives. There are no minimum fees and no upfront commitments.
Security integrated with how you develop applications: Every feature in AWS WAF can be configured using either the AWS WAF API or the AWS Management Console. This allows your DevOps team to define application-specific rules that increase web security as they develop applications.
