The release of the WAF has introduced a new game changer for KEMP Technologies. The Web application firewall brings new security features to the LoadMaster range which makes it more appetising for customers to migrate from a Microsoft TMG environment over to KEMP. This would also suggest that end users could now use the load master as a Web Application Firewall (WAF) and load balancer or just a WAF on its own.
The following release provides the following benefits:
Comprehensive Security Services
Ease of Deployment and Use
An extract from KEMP’s WAF page:
“KEMP’s Application Firewall Pack (AFP)* combines Layer 7 Web Application Firewall protection with other application delivery services including intelligent load balancing, intrusion detection, intrusion prevention as well as edge security and authentication. By integrating the world’s most deployed web application firewall engine, ModSecurity, augmented by threat intelligence and research from information security provider, Trustwave, AFP provides
data loss prevention (DLP)
mitigation of the OWASP Top Ten common vulnerabilities
real-time threat protection for packaged & custom applications
support for organizational PCI-DSS compliance requirement
With a targeted focus on application-specific exploits missed by traditional firewalling techniques, AFP plays a key part in a defense-in-depth strategy that mitigates risk and optimizes applications.”
