Pros and Cons

  • AWS WAF has the most developer-friendly API to create firewall rules.
  • AWS WAF provides OWASP security controls, which reduces developers' burden (i.e., SQL injection and cross-site scripting).
  • AWS WAF has customizable web security rules. The user can even push the rules through the API available, which is the great feature and helped me a lot.
  • It protects applications at layer 7 (HTTP) of the OSI model and not just layer 4 (TCP).
  • Need to enhance OWASP standards.
  • We are limited to five rate-based rules per AWS account.

Pros and Cons

  • It allows custom rules to be established to stop attacks that may harm business applications.
  • Its cost is based only on what the user uses to establish rules that can protect applications from vulnerabilities.
  • The rules can be established by the user or those that the system already brings with it being able to be centralized to reuse them for the rest of the applications, which saves time.
  • The user can choose the traffic of their applications.
  • The cost depends on the number of rules assigned.
  • It deploys new rules fast and efficiently.
  • The documentation offered is somewhat confusing, so it would be ideal if it were much more direct and precise.
  • Your initial configuration may be confusing, so the best option is to use the rule templates provided by AWS.
  • Its configuration is not unified with AWS, so it must be done separately and it takes some time.
  • The number of rules to be established is somewhat limited.

Pros and Cons

  • Protect any application against the most common attacks.
  • Provides better visibility of web traffic.
  • It allows us to control the traffic in different ways in which it is enabled or blocked through the implementation of security rules developed personally according to our needs.
  • It is able to block common attacks such as SQL code injection.
  • It allows defining specific rules for applications, thus increasing web security as they are developed.
  • It is necessary to have knowledge about the software because otherwise inappropriate rules will be created.
  • Your configuration can be somewhat tedious.
  • Your support team takes a long time to answer the user's questions.
  • Its costs can be somewhat high, unlike other services since it is charged by the number of rules that are created.
