We all want faster websites, no matter which side of the site we’re sitting on. Surfers want faster page loading times because they’re usually impatient and will quickly lose interest if the page appears to take more than a millisecond to load. And as a business owner, you should be concerned with speed too. You don’t want to lose valuable customers just because your website appears to be tranquilized.

Does your website have a bouncer, and if not, why not? Think about it. Websites are being probed by hackers millions of times every day, using sophisticated and automated hacking tools looking for any vulnerabilities they can exploit. It’s like having a store on Main Street that’s swarmed with visitors every single day, only you can’t tell which customers are going to pay you and which ones are going to shoplift.
A web application firewall, or WAF, is like a bouncer for your website. It stands between you and the street and determines based on a variety of criteria who gets in and who’s kicked out. It acts as a filter to make sure the visitors to your online store don’t mean you any harm.
