W. A. F, or WAF, stands for Web Application
Firewall. Similar to a PC firewall, WAF is like a security
gate between your website and the traffic trying to enter it. It inspects all traffic
using multi-layered security checkpoints, letting in only the good traffic.
WAF is the most effective way to stop attempts to bring down your site through an overload
of fake traffic. These attacks are called Distributed Denial of Service – or DDoS.
DDoS attacks can result in financial loss, reputation damage, and legal problems.
With WAF you’re guarded 24/7.
