Web application firewalls have become the central platform for protecting applications against all online threats including technical Web attacks, business logic attacks, and online fraud. Web application firewalls understand Web usage and validate input to stop dangerous attacks like SQL injection, XSS, and directory traversal. They block scanners and virtually patch vulnerabilities. And they rapidly evolve to prevent new attacks and to keep critical applications safe.

This paper explains in detail the 10 features that every Web application firewall should provide.
