Prevent Website Attacks Now

What is a Web Application Firewall (WAF)?

A web application firewall (WAF) protects your website and web applications from cyberthreats and harmful traffic, like cybercriminals and bad bots. A WAF is like having a force field around your site—it only lets good visitors in and keeps malicious ones out. Beyond protecting your website, your web application firewall comes with a content delivery network (CDN) proven to accelerate your website speed by as much as 50 percent.
  • Websites are attacked approximately 50 times per day, per website.

What is a Bad Bot?

Bots run automated tasks on websites across the internet. In fact, bots represent over 50 percent of all website traffic. There are good bots and bad bots— good bots visit your site to perform tasks like search engine crawling, while bad bots are designed to cause harm, such as comment spam and targeted DDoS attacks. A WAF blocks bad bots while allowing legitimate traffic to pass through.
  • The average website receives 2,400 bot visits each week.
  • Bad bots represent over 35 percent of all bot traffic.
