Cloud-based organizations can be vulnerable to hackers in this modern age. Data breaches occur every day, and businesses have a responsibility towards their customers to ensure that their data is protected. They must guard against data theft and security breaches. Security is a major concern for businesses.
Privacy of data
Integrity, Nonauthentication and Nonrepudiation
Online attacks such as phishing, man in the middle attack, DDoS and SQL injection, Phlashing and others are all possible.
Businesses must ensure that their Cloud infrastructure is secure before it is hacked. There should be a complete and safe system for protecting the Cloud infrastructure. This post will be about AWS services that allow businesses to protect their AWS infrastructure.
What is WAF?AWSWAF is a Web Application Firewall. It monitors web requests before they are forwarded to Application Load Balancer, Amazon API Gateway, or CloudFront. AWS WAF can also block or allow any web request according to your rules and conditions. This means that your WAF is above CloudFront and ALB. If you don’t have these services, you can’t use AWS WAF.
When is WAF the right choice?AWS WAF allows or blocks only web requests. If you want to block web requests, WAF is the right option. AWS WAF is a web request blocker that follows rules and conditions.
WAF is a great tool to help you block attacks on your CloudFront load balancer or CloudFront. Sometimes, web requests from one IP are hitting the website repeatedly. In this case, WAF can be used to block those IPs.
Another feature of WAF is the ability to count requests that match the properties specified. AWS WAF is a tool that allows you to block or allow requests based upon new properties in the web request. WAF allows you to count requests based on these properties. Once you are confident, you can then allow or block those requests. This allows you to prevent accidental blocking of traffic to your website.
