Next-Generation
Web Application Firewall

Your growing application portfolio is providing new and engaging experiences for your customers. That means more data to protect.

As you diversify your tech stack and cloud platforms to increase speed to market, you need active protection instead of passive signatures. You need coverage that provides granular, application-specific defense without a lot of effort. Legacy rules-based Web Application Firewalls (WAFs) weren’t built for modern tech. A next-gen approach is needed.

Our next-gen WAF is designed to protect the modern web.
