Hassle-Free Enterprise-Level

WAF as a Service

Let us worry about the intricacies of WAF management and configuration so your delivery teams can focus on providing the best business value of your applications.

Web applications are an important part of your business and a vital part of how customers interact with you. Unfortunately, web applications also give attackers another gateway into your critical assets and data. Businesses need to distinguish the good traffic from the bad in real-time, accurately. Alert Logic delivers a competitively priced, highly versatile, enterprise-level, cloud-ready WAF that comes with a team of experts to eliminate the complexity for you.

Complete Setup and Management

From installation, deployment through to configuration, our experts ensure your Web Application Firewall is ready to block threats against your critical web applications.

Our analysts fine-tune your WAF SaaS by monitoring your web application traffic, whitelisting valid requests and data, and building a policy that blocks malicious web traffic and other undesired activity.

As new threats emerge and your apps and portfolio change, our web application security experts analysts will update your policies as needed or required. Our services eliminate the steep learning curve and associated staffing costs that come with managing a WAF.

Tuned and Optimized

Combining deep expertise in enterprise web applications and security with an intimate knowledge of web application technologies and the threat landscape, our dedicated team partners with you to optimize the Alert Logic technologies based on your unique profile.

Our out-of-the-box policies cover 10,000+ vulnerabilities, including unique flaws in off-the-shelf and custom web applications (e.g., OWASP Top 10, URL tampering, web scraping, buffer overflow attacks, Zero-Day web application threats, and DoS attacks).

Traditional and Behavior Based Threat Detection

Alert Logic’s cloud-ready, managed WAF provides comprehensive features to protect your web applications. Whitelisting, blacklisting, and signature-based blocking are augmented by a learning engine that builds a model of your application to recognize activity that deviates from a known-good baseline of traffic. Using both a positive and negative security model in this way means the Alert Logic virtual WAF knows how to recognize malicious activity as well as unexpected activity.

Leveraging Alert Logic’s Intelligence

People are a critical component of Alert Logic’s solutions and we have invested in security talent since 2002. This investment in deep security expertise allows Alert Logic to build detection technologies that provide broader and deeper protection than other providers or tools alone ever can.

Behavioral-based content is leveraged to detect, monitor for, and block, more unusual attacks that WAFs with more specific signatures will miss.

Essential Compliance Coverage

Immediately meet the web application firewall requirement of PCI DSS 6.4 & other compliance mandates. PCI DSS penetration tests are often performed from inside the network as well as outside, to try to attack web applications through all possible vectors. Cloud-based WAFs may be bypassed and can fail this requirement.
