The SonicWall Web Application Firewal l (WAF) solutions enables the defense-in-depth strategy to protect your web applications running in a private, public or hybrid cloud environment.
The SonicWall WAF Series is full-featured web application firewall that arms organizations with advanced web security tools and services to protect their data and web properties against modern,web-based threats. It applies deep packet inspection of Layer 7 web traffic against a regularly updated database of known signatures, denies access upon detecting web application threats and redirects users to an explanatory error page. In addition, the SonicWall WAF also baselines regular web application usage / behavior and identifies anomalies that may be indicative of attempts to compromise the application, steal data and/or cause a denial-of-service.
