Web Application & API Protection (WAAP)

Web applications and APIs are accessible via the public Internet and provide access to sensitive data, making them a main target for attackers. Traditional security solutions cannot effectively protect these applications, making WAAP a must. Protect your applications and APIs against threats and fraud, help ensure availability and compliance.

All purpouse
Proven protection for apps in the cloud, on-premises, or hybrid deployments
Protect against existing and emerging threats
Anti-DDoS, anti-bot, WAF, and API protection help you protect against new and existing threats while helping you keep your apps and APIs compliant and continuously available.
Simplify operations
Reduce the number of vendors you work with to protect your apps; leverage integrations with Google Cloud tools for consolidated management and visibility.
WAAP anywhere, for less
Get proven, comprehensive protection of applications and APIs from a single vendor while potentially saving 50%–70% over competing solutions.

EdgeWatch Bastion WAAP key features:

  • Next-Generation Web Application Firewall (Next-Gen WAF) protects and monitors web applications from a broad spectrum of attacks at the point where they are deployed—the application layer. A next-gen WAF differs from a traditional WAF in that it uses behavioral analysis and artificial intelligence (AI) to block attacks without relying solely on known attack patterns and manual security rules.
  • Runtime Application Self-Protection (RASP) embedded in the application runtime domain, this offers real-time attack defense for APIs and web applications.
  • Malicious bot protection isolates and stops attacks from suspicious bots while permitting safe bot traffic to reach the application.
  • Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) Protection—safeguards against DDoS attacks targeted at applications, APIs and microservices, at the application and network layers. Able to scale up to defend against massive-scale attacks.
  • Advanced rate limiting safeguards against abusive activity at the application level which adversely influences website and API performance.
  • Protection for microservices and APIs places security within the microservice, application, or serverless function to produce a context and data-aware micro perimeter around all individual services.
  • Account takeover protection—safeguards against cybercriminals using compromised credentials from data dumps and password lists. Detects unauthorized access to customer accounts via authentication APIs or an application’s customer-facing authentication process.
