If you have deployed your servers and application and have them running through the cloud, then you should choose the AWS WAF for security. This is very good cloud firewall which will protect your application and servers from any type of attacks. On the cloud, everyone can easily reach your server, so you need to add more security. AWS WAF provides you a lot of features, which will help you to protect your cloud servers and applications from external attacks.

AWS WAF is perhaps one of the best web application firewalls out there to date. Thankfully we have had no issues and we have been commended for using reputable vendors like AWS for security and privacy matters as part of our GDPR and ISO certifications. I would suggest that prospective customers use the CloudFormation templates provided by Amazon for creating the WAF.

AWS WAF is well suited for securing HTTP/HTTPS and API services deployed in AWS as it is easily integrated with services like CloudFront and API Gateway. AWS WAF can be used to to address some application security flaws such as the ones named by the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP).

AWS is ideal for implementation in scenarios where business applications are consuming more resources than they should. When AWS WAF is used it prevents this from happening and in this way applications tend to run as they should. It is ideal to establish custom rules and centralize them to protect different applications without having to re-create the same rules which helps save time, as well as allowing the usual attack patterns to be blocked, such as cross-site scripts and SQL injection.

AWS WAF is highly appropriate to interrupt or prevent cyber attacks because when implementing rules, whether they are specific or centralized, so any application that has these vulnerabilities is protected.

Implementing managed rules creates greater security to protect both API and applications.

If implemented along with other AWS tools, the security is much better, so if you want to protect applications against more specific attacks, it is ideal to integrate with Amazon CloudFront, which is a great benefit because it warns when thresholds are exceeded or specific attacks occur.

AWS WAF is ideal to avoid common web attacks. For more specific attacks and scenarios, I don't recommend this.

It is a pretty useful product if your web application is deployed on Amazon Web Service platform, else it could be a little complicated and pricey. It's useful if you want to lay down your own rules for security and traffic management of your web app. Having AWS WAF can assure you that the application that you are creating have integrated security features which can be maintained easily for future use. It does has some flaws, but it is backed up by Amazon which is doing a great job in everything that they are doing, so it surely has a great future.
