Web Application Firewall
Getting started with a WAF on Section starts with deciding which technology fits best with your application. Regardless of the WAF you choose, it will be seamlessly integrated into the Section platform with enough flexibility to choose where in the edge stack it is deployed.
For the open-source rules based WAF, you will have full control of the configuration with no limits on the number of rules used for blocking threats. You will have full access to logs, metrics, and monitoring at the edge to help you fine-tune your blocking rules to ensure you are keeping your application protected.
The process for implementing intelligent WAFs varies depending on the choice of edge Module. Some WAFs can be pushed to blocking mode immediately while others can include two phases “baselining” then “blocking”, whereby they will run for a period in “detect” mode before switching over to blocking mode.
