AppWall ( Web Application)
AppWall – More Than Just a WAF As cyber attacks and mitigation techniques continue to evolve, enterprises need to be on alert and keep time to protection as short as possible.
Enterprises are migrating business-critical functions to web applications in an effort to increase productivity, improve business agility and reduce costs.
While the migration to web applications provides economic advantages and enables increased business agility, it also creates new security risks and compliance requirements that need to be addressed. The complexity of attacks and the speed in which new mitigation tools and techniques are being bypassed require a more
robust and comprehensive solution that provides faster protection and reduced maintenance costs. By targeting the application layer, attackers exhaust server and application resources using stealth attack techniques that go undetected by traditional security tools.
It is no longer just about http floods and downtime. Advanced methods and the use of multiple vectors during attacks present new challenges in securing an organization.
AppWall – Faster to Deploy. Easier to Maintain
AppWall is the only web application firewall that provides complete web application security. It blocks attacks at the perimeter and ensures fast, reliable and secure delivery of mission-critical web applications. It is the best performing application security solution for web security, mitigation and compliance.
Detect. Signal. Block.
Once AppWall detects a web or application based availability attack, its new Defense Signaling feature automatically signals DefensePro which is deployed at the perimeter to mitigate and block attacks in real-time.
This unique Defense Messaging mechanism can be deployed inline as well as out-of-path to assure line speed web based
attack mitigation with no additional latency, performance impact or risk.
Line speed mitigation:
– 40Gbps – 25M DDoS pps – 60 micro seconds latency
- Mitigating cyber attacks targeting web applications behind CDNs
- Blocking the following attacks:
– Advanced http DDoS attacks (Slowloris, Http Dynamic Floods)
– Brute force attacks on login pages
– SSL attacks
- Blocking the attack source at the perimeter, securing other applications and services
- Enabling multi-layer detection and mitigation
All-in-One Application Delivery & Security
When AppWall is deployed as part of Alteon NG, the solution provides a comprehensive set of availability, acceleration,and security services designed to ensure fast, reliable, and secure delivery of mission-critical web applications.
Resources of AppWall instances can be dynamically allocated according to enterprise needs and deliver fault isolation,SLA assurance and high platform density.
The solution supports both out-of-path and inline deployment modes and can be delivered on a variety of platforms thatsupport up to 80Gbps.
Shortest Time to Security
AppWall’s unique Auto Policy Generation analyzes the protected application, generates granular protection rules and applies a security policy in blocking mode that offers the following benefits:
- Shortest time to protection, requiring only one week for known attacks – 50% faster than other leading WAFs
- Best security coverage by performing auto threat analysis, with no admin intervention – covering over 150 attack vectors
- Lowest false-positives achieved through auto-optimization of out-of-the-box rules – close to zero false positives
- Automatic detection of web application changes assuring security throughout the application’s development lifecycle – post deployment peace of mind
Multi-Vector Role Based Security Policy
By leveraging AppWall’s authentication and SSO, application or organizational web role (employees, partners, customersetc.), and security policies (such as application access, data visibility and web security) can enforce segregation of duties that ensure access to data is based on business needs.
Radware AppWall License complete web application protection provides full coverage of OWASP Top-10 Risks by enforcing negative & positive security models that offer the most comprehensive set of web security features. AppWall protects against over a hundred attack vectors some of which are listed in the WASC Threat Classification
It terminates TCP connections and normalizes client encoded traffic to block various evasion techniques and guarantees that out of the box negative security is much more efficient, accurate and difficult to evade.
IP-agnostic Device Identification and Tracking
AppWall’s Device Fingerprinting and Activity Tracking modules offer IP-agnostic source tracking to help address the threats posed by advanced bots, such as web scraping, Web application DDoS, brute force attacks for password cracking and clickjacking.
AppWall can detect sources operating in a dynamic IP environment and activity behind a source NAT, such as an enterprise network or proxy. Even if the bot dynamically changes its source IP address, its device fingerprint does not change. AppWall tracks the device activity and correlates the source security violations across different sessions over time.
AppWall enables organizations to fully comply with PCI DSS section 6.6 requirements and includes the most advanced security graphical reports to convey visibility into the application security and detected attacks. Its detailed PCI compliance report analyzes the security policies, provides automatic compliance status and a mandatory action plan for compliance.
Ready for the Future with Attack Mitigation Network (AMN)
AppWall is part of Radware’s Attack Mitigation Network (AMN), a holistic security architecture designed to fight emerging cyber-attacks. AMN offers Defense Signaling, a unique feature deployed in Radware license solution.
Every device and solution that is part of the AMN architecture provides information about traffic baselines and real time signatures to the other solutions so all systems have full visibility into available information.
Defense Signaling can automatically respond and mitigate threats where they should be mitigated. For example, it can
detect attacks on the application level through AppWall, but can block it in the perimeter with DefensePro, or move volumetric attack mitigation to the cloud.
This allows scaling mitigation capabilities and moving mitigation as far as possible from the application infrastructure, resulting in faster, better protected application delivery.
