Address the critical need to secure your applications.

Today’s digital businesses must be available and secure, but with your network and applications under constant attack, it’s difficult to ensure your data and online revenues are safe. SHI’s web application firewall (WAF) solutions defend your online presence and ensure your website, mobile applications, and APIs are secure, protected, and always on.

WAFs are essential for online businesses like retailers, banks, healthcare, and social media, which need to protect sensitive data from unauthorized access. These solutions safeguard against threats that compromise availability, security, or resources, including zero-day exploits, and ensure your organization is open for business.

Advanced threat protection and visibility

Applications are prime targets for cyberattacks. Threat actors employ various types of attacks, including volume, layer 7, and DDoS, to exploit vulnerabilities and compromise application security. WAFs have emerged as essential protection tools against these threats, playing a crucial role in mitigating volume-based as well as SQL injection and cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks.

A WAF can optimize web application performance by filtering out malicious traffic and preventing attacks, helping you avoid the aftermath of a successful breach. This technology leads to enhanced security, compliance assurance, and improved performance.

Web application security

WAFs are critical for data protection, deploying encryption, access controls, and data leakage prevention. Machine learning algorithms can identify and block sophisticated attacks. Additionally, WAF solutions safeguard sensitive data by preventing unauthorized access and data leakage, ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of sensitive data within crucial applications — thereby protecting your valuable reputation.

Incident protection and reduced vulnerabilities

WAF solutions proactively prevent security incidents, minimizing the chance of data breaches, service disruptions, and financial losses. Also, by continuous monitoring and filtering incoming traffic, WAFs help identify and mitigate vulnerabilities in web applications, reducing the risk of exploitation.

Reduced attack surface

WAFs reduce the attack surface of web applications by blocking malicious requests, thereby minimizing the risk of exploitation. Some WAFs include DDoS protection capabilities, helping organizations withstand and mitigate distributed denial-of-service attacks.
