Web application protection

Attacks on websites and web applications are the most dangerous.

Attackers can gain access to sensitive data and change the content of the website (for example, change prices).

Analytical studies show that the best and most effective protection of web applications from threats and vulnerabilities is provided through the implementation of solutions of the Web Application Firewall (WAF) class.

Why WAF?

Without WAF - a couple of hours, or maybe a couple of minutes, and a hacker can get the entire list of your customers and sell to a competitor.

WAF solutions are capable of preventing attacks that classic firewalls and intrusion detection systems cannot protect against, without requiring modification of the application source code.
