What is a WAF?

A web application firewall (WAF) is designed to automatically filter out and block malicious incoming internet traffic before it reaches your critical web applications. As a strong defence against protocol layer 7 attacks, a WAF will provide your web applications with protection against a range of sophisticated cyber attacks, including cross-site scripting (XSS), SQL injection, file inclusion, cookie poisoning, and much more

Our Managed WAF & Installation Service

With web applications constantly under threat of attack, it’s vital that your organisation has the strongest cyber security measures in place. At Wizard Cyber, our WAF is a cloud-based, enterprise-grade solution that doesn’t require any on-premises access to deploy, scale, maintain, or manage — so, wherever your web applications are hosted, our industry-leading cyber security specialists will keep them protected at all times

Benefits of CYBERSHIELD Web Application Firewall (WAF) Service

State-of-the-art security for industry-leading apps

Exceptional Defence Against Next-Generation Attacks

The cyber threat landscape is evolving at an alarming rate, leaving many organisations concerned about the security of their web applications. At Wizard Cyber, we closely monitor the OWASP Top 10 Application Security Risks and Automated Threats to Web Applications — keeping your organisation firmly protected against sophisticated cyber threats of all kinds

Protecting Customer Data and Ensuring Compliance

Maintaining customer confidence depends on a strong cyber security defence. Our industry-leading CYBERSHIELD WAF is powered by Microsoft Azure — enabling your organisation to keep customer data secure, protect your reputation, and stay fully compliant with compliance regulations such as HIPAA and PCI

Complete WAF setup and Management

With Wizard Cyber, every aspect of your web application firewall is seamlessly setup and managed remotely — removing the need for a disruptive on-premises installation and physical maintenance. However, CYBERSHIELD WAF is primarily designed to provide exceptional web application cyber security for organisations that demand peace of mind 24/7

At the start of the deployment stage, your web application firewall will be set to ‘Learning Mode’ for 10-14 days. After the learning phase is complete, your WAF will have a clear cyber security bassline to work against and our team will activate ‘Block Mode’ — allowing it to immediately detect unusual traffic signatures and block them before they reach your web application. Additionally, your organisation will receive periodic reports that detail where vulnerabilities have been found and the best course for remediation

Find and Remediate Vulnerabilities

The complexity of deployments, frequency of updates, and speed of the development are factors that sometimes cause new vulnerabilities to appear within an application. Thankfully, CYBERSHIELD WAF leverages a powerful vulnerability scanner that monitors your entire deployment 24/7

Whenever a vulnerability is found (even within in-development applications), it’s seamlessly remediated with just a single click or through an automated process — detailed reporting of vulnerability discovery and remediation processes of this kind are often essential for maintaining regulatory compliance


Advanced DDOS Protection

If successful, DDoS attacks significantly disrupt web applications — damaging an organisation’s reputation as well as costing money and resources to resolve. Advanced, unmetered DDoS protection through CYBERSHIELD WAF will provide your organisation with the peace of mind needed to stay innovative and dynamic with your web application development

CYBERSHIELD WAF offers a unique, forward-thinking approach to DDoS protection, providing a solution that keeps you ahead of more than just the OWASP Top Ten vulnerabilities — your organisation will also gain Layer-3 – 7 DDoS protection — maintaining cyber security across your web applications at all times

Exceptional Protection Against Bots

Across the internet, bots make up over 50% of all activity, with a significant portion of this traffic being malicious in nature. Bots present a unique issue from a cyber security standpoint, as they have become far better at mimicking human behaviour — making them harder to detect and mitigate

CYBERSHIELD WAF incorporates an advanced bot mitigation system that’s powered by artificial intelligence. This ensures that all legitimate traffic will pass through to your web application while blocking out any sophisticated bots — providing exceptional continuity for your organisation and users alike


Malware Attack Mitigation

Malware threats continue to evolve in their sophistication and volume at lightning speed. Using zero-hour exploits and targeted attacks to wreak havoc on web applications, novel malware is designed to evade even the most up-to-date mitigation technologies — placing global organisations under a constant threat of attack

CYBERSHIELD WAF embraces the power of Advanced Threat Protection to defend leading organisations against malware attacks. Using multiple analytical layers, this cloud-based service automatically examines all traffic across vital at-threat areas of attack — successfully identifying and blocking incoming malware attacks, including evasive zero-hour attacks

PCI-DSS Compliance Coverage

With CYBERSHIELD WAF, your organisation will immediately meet compliance requirements for PCI-DSS 6.6 as well as many others. Powered by Microsoft Azure and ICSA certified, CYBERSHIELD WAF provides exceptional cyber security for your critical web application data — protecting against unauthorised access, data leakage, site defacement, and many other forms of malicious attack. With CYBERSHIELD WAF, your organisation will be able to confidently store, transmit, and process your customers’ credit card data 24/7
