What is it?
A web application firewall (WAF) is an advanced layer of protection for your website that determines who and what is
(or isn’t) allowed to access it. It’s like a bouncer for your website. The TrueShield WAF evaluates traffic based on where it is coming from, how it is behaving, and what information it is requesting. Based on these and other criteria, it will allow good traffic like customers or search engines, and block bad traffic, like spam bots or hackers. TrueShield blocks attempts by malicious bots or hackers to break in to your website – your online business. The advanced technology allows a website owner to control the types of interactions visitors can have on your website, and identify and block most attack agents. In short, a web application firewall keeps the bad guys out of your website. And it protects your visitors and their data.
What problem does it address?
Attacking websites through the applications (like your blog or shopping cart) has become the leading way for hackers and cybercriminals to bypass traditional security measures. If hackers are able to access your sensitive information or administrative area though the web applications, they can do extensive damage. They can steal data (like your customers’ contact or financial info), deface or destroy your website, use your server to launch attacks on other sites, or worse. Any of these attacks can damage your site’s reputation and ranking on search engines. And your customers lose their trust in your brand, and take their business elsewhere.
