About cloud web application firewall

Our cloud web application firewall service offers enterprise-grade security and performance features. Your web application will be protected against emerging threats that target known and unknown exploits by using adaptive machine learning. Secure any website against application-based attacks, including complete DDOS protection, for a fixed price per site. Whether your website is on premise or in the cloud, you'll be protected.

The service scrubs and filters web requests, so network to application attacks are never relayed to your servers. As well as providing security defences, it can also help achieve compliance needs.

Keeping your web services available

Our service protects you against current and emerging attacks including:

  • DDOS (Layers 3/4 and 7 attacks) 
  • Open Web Application Security Project Top 10 threats including SQL Injection and Cross Site Scripting
  • Credential Stuffing
  • Zero Day Attacks
  • Anomaly Detection
  • Bot Mitigation
