Web Protection Platform (WPP)

Unparalleled security visibility and protection -- that’s what the Signal Sciences web protection platform delivers. Built to be flexible in the modern enterprise, our security solution has a menu of deployment options that allows you to pick what’s best for your teams. It easily integrates into the rest of your DevOps toolchain and enables the shift to DevOps and cloud. Our web protection platform secures web applications, microservices, and APIs no matter where you deploy them, giving you security coverage for your entire application portfolio.


The Signal Sciences web protection platform provides security visibility and protection no matter where your web applications deploy, what languages they’re written in, or what infrastructure they run on. Signal Sciences brings the broadest defense, going way beyond the OWASP Top 10 by detecting modern applications attacks that matter to you the most. Because we integrate into your current toolchain, Signal Sciences gives you accurate and actionable security data where you want it, when you want it.

Benefit 1

Menu of deployment options

We understand the extensive diversity of technology stacks that exist in the modern enterprise, and Signal Sciences’ menu of deployment options covers all of them. By offering different deployment choices (NGWAF, RASP, and Reverse Proxy modes), we can support all of your applications -- regardless of infrastructure, language, or cloud deployment choices.

Benefit 2

Broad and accurate security visibility and detection

The Signal Sciences WPP goes well beyond the OWASP Top 10 attacks. The WPP protects you from common attacks, such as SQL injection and cross-site scripting, as well as more modern threats, such as application DDoS, brute force attacks, and attacks against your applications’ sensitive business logic.

Benefit 3

Toolchain integration

With the WPP, we don’t make you change your workflows. With more than 15 integrations, Signal Sciences embraces how your security, operations, and development teams do business by integrating into their most common tools, including Slack, Jira, Hipchat, PagerDuty, Datagog, Splunk, and more.

Benefit 4

Network Effect

As threat patterns emerge across our customer base, the Signal Sciences WPP analyzes them, which enables our team to transparently push new, proactive security improvements to each of our customers. As a Signal Sciences customer, you gain not only the network effect of our adaptive security engine but also security improvements learned from our entire customer base.
