Overall Satisfaction with AWS WAF

Web applications are very vulnerable to attacks and deploying your applications from the cloud can expose them to even greater risk. To help secure their cloud web apps, administrators will use a Web Application Firewall. We deployed all the applications and servers on the AWS cloud, so we need more security. That is why we are using the AWS Web Application Firewall. WAF provides a lot of features that will secure your applications. We have been using cloud services for the last 3 years and most of the services are running on AWS. In our condition we need a lot of security.

  • Bot Control
  • Real-time visibility
  • Easy to monitor web traffic
  • Prevent against any type of attack, like SQL code injection
