Things to consider when choosing a Web Application Firewall
Explain to us, how does your network work. We also need to know how does your infrastructure looks like.
Are you a “Secret Service” like organization, a bank, or just regular e-commerce? Do you need to have the WAF on-premise or can it work in a cloud?
How much traffic do you handle? Are your users from all around the world? How many milliseconds of delay can you tolerate?
What if there is a well-known vulnerability in the WAF you are using? How rapidly do you want the fixes to be applied?
Do you want to keep your WAF in a monitoring mode or keep it actively blocking unwanted visitors?
Do you need a WAF with PCI DSS? Does your industry require additional certifications? Are there any regulations we should think about?
Do you need standard protection from the most popular attacks or things like cookie modification and brute force login attempts, need to be handled as well?
Should your WAF decrypt data that flows from or to your users? Proper WAFs can terminate a package that has been encrypted with an SLL.
Do you need reporting? Would you like to know how many times were you attacked this month?
