In the last few years, application security has been forced to reinvent itself due to the advent of cloud, containerization, agile, DevOps, and other modern development technology and process improvements. The old ways of doing application security are phasing out with the new approach being embedded into the fabric of how we build software. However, sometimes with innovation comes confusion.

In this quick lunch and learn webinar we will talk about the different types of modern application security approaches (e.g. next-generation WAF, WAF, and RASP), which types are good for what use cases, and how you should consider changing your approach to application security to better fit today’s modern development world.

Can’t make it? Sign up anyway! We’ll send slides and a link to the webinar recording after the event!

At Signal Sciences we are building the industry’s first Next Generation Web Application Firewall (NGWAF). Our NGWAF was built in response to our own frustrations of trying to use legacy WAFs while enabling business initiatives like DevOps, cloud adoption and continuous delivery. The Signal Sciences NGWAF works seamlessly across cloud, physical, and containerized infrastructure, providing security without breaking production traffic.
