Securing Modern Web Applications


As network and application layer attacks become more advanced, web application firewalls (WAFs) have grown to combat these threats. Modern WAFs combine signature-based detection, behavior analysis and profiling to conduct a behavioral baseline and construct a profile that looks for deviations relative to that profile.

In this definitive book on WAFs, we cover multiple topics, including the current application threat landscape, types of attacks, the evolution of WAF technologies and modern deployment architectures. This book will help you to get up to speed on the latest developments in the space to better understand how you can incorporate and integrate WAF with your existing and planned technology deployments, including cloud, on-premises and hybrid topologies.
