Bots are by far the most widespread cyber menace. They capture a single sale that you could have had, they hold it hostage, and then release it slowly or all at once for a ransom payment or a ransom fee to use your services for a short time before disabling you again. There is no reason not to have a Web Application Firewall in your cloud if you want to maintain a sale through to the end!
This is exactly what I do with every client I consult, but it’s one of those things that many sellers either aren’t aware of or don’t know how to implement effectively.
Many sellers don’t know why they should have a WAF. Others use the free WordPress Security Plugin or a domain-level firewall that has a single port open or a very limited set of rules.
Prevention of Malicious Attacks on Data
Data breaches and malicious attacks on data are a growing concern for many businesses. The average cost of a breach is $143 per record (including the time and money spent containing the breach). Many businesses understand the importance of security, but still aren’t taking the necessary precautions. Weakening your defenses with legacy protections such as antivirus software and firewall is not an effective long-term strategy.
I recommend that all businesses implement a web application firewall (WAF) and monitor for malicious attacks.
More specifically, the WAF should prevent exploits from moving from your server to your customers’ browser.
This includes protecting all web requests from each client. Even if a vulnerability is patched on the server, it can still be exploited by a brute force attack.
Assistance for Effective Business Scaling
A web application firewall is the best way to keep your company safe from bots. Web application firewalls protect against brute force, cross-site scripting, and denial of service attacks. Every business has to face the reality of being attacked by bots. Bots are computer programs that behave in a manner similar to a human. They typically look for vulnerabilities in networks and systems. A web application firewall is the best way to keep your company safe from bots.
Web application firewalls protect against brute force, cross-site scripting, and denial of service attacks. Businesses have to deal with this fact of being attacked by bots every day.
Enhances Security Measures
A Web Application Firewall (WAF) is a security solution for protecting against cyberattacks. While your website can be completely protected by these 3 steps, you can still improve it by adding a few other security measures.
· We strongly recommend that you also secure your website with SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) protection. SSL secures your website by encrypting the connection between your visitors and your server, which makes your site more trustworthy and prevents people from accessing the information they’re not supposed to see.
· The first thing is to make sure your website never has the address http://www.yoursite.com/wp-admin or wp-login.php. Instead, it should always be http://www.yoursite.com. If you do end up with http://www.yoursite.com/wp-admin, then it’s time to create a virtual host file for the root directory of your site. This is the only possible way I’ve found to override this problem.
· You still need to consider your site visitors when it comes to securing your site. There is a lot of malware and viruses out there that target websites, so use caution when clicking on links within an email and in general be weary of what you click on and where you go when you’re online.
It is important to implement this protection as soon as possible. WAFs are used to protect web applications from common hacking techniques, such as SQL injection and cross-site scripting attacks. Don’t Lose a Single Sale to Bots!
Low Ownership Cost
Web application firewall (WAF) is a software that monitors and filters incoming and outgoing traffic to the Web server. WAF is a type of program which monitors and blocks any potential attacks on the website’s web application. It also blocks any unwanted visitors and bots by scanning their IP address and sending them away. A low ownership cost of WAF is that it is not expensive to deploy and maintain. Another advantage of WAF is that it is lightweight and simple to configure.
People are always looking for ways to protect their site from hackers and unauthorized individuals. WAF is one of the most reliable security options because it blocks bots, worms, viruses, scripts, and any other malicious activity before they have a chance to strike. A web application firewall is a software that monitors network traffic in an effort to detect web-based attacks. The goal of WAF security is to provide protection against unwanted traffic by screening out invalid requests or malformed data.
