WAFs are designed to monitor, detect, and prevent cyber attacks on web applications by analyzing incoming traffic and blocking any suspicious or malicious activity. WAF consulting helps organizations understand their web application security needs and identify the right WAF solution for their specific requirements. This service typically involves conducting a security assessment, recommending a suitable WAF solution, and providing guidance on its deployment and ongoing management.

How do we do
WAF Consultant

digiALERT approaches WAF consulting in a comprehensive and customized manner.

First, we begin by conducting a thorough assessment of the client's web application environment. This includes identifying the types of web applications in use, the potential attack surface, and the current security measures in place.

Based on the assessment, we then recommend the best type of WAF solution that will match the organization's specific needs. This can include both hardware and software-based WAFs, cloud-based WAFs or a combination of different solutions.

Next, we provide implementation and configuration services to ensure the WAF is properly integrated with the organization's existing security infrastructure. This includes configuring the WAF to match the specific needs of the organization and testing to ensure that it is effectively protecting the web application.

We also offer ongoing management services, which include monitoring the WAF for any potential security threats and making any necessary adjustments to the configuration to ensure that the WAF is effectively protecting the organization's web applications.

WHY WAF CONSULTANT
WHO NEEDS WAF CONSULTANT

Web Application Firewalls (WAFs) play a crucial role in safeguarding web applications from various malicious attacks. WAF consulting is indispensable for organizations looking to ensure their web applications are secure and they are using the right WAF solution that meets their specific requirements.

Organizations with complex web applications often face difficulty in identifying and securing all potential attack surfaces. A WAF consultant can help identify these vulnerabilities and recommend the ideal WAF solution. Many organizations lack in-house expertise to effectively implement and manage a WAF. In such scenarios, a WAF consultant can provide the necessary expertise and manage the WAF by monitoring it for any security threats and making adjustments to the configuration to keep the web applications protected.

Regulations and compliance requirements also play a part in mandating the use of WAFs for organizations. A WAF consultant can help organizations comply with these regulations. The threat landscape for web applications is constantly changing, with new vulnerabilities and attack methods emerging regularly. A WAF consultant can keep organizations updated on the latest threats and configure the WAF to protect against them.

 

How often is Vulnerability Assessment recommended
When it would be performed

The frequency of vulnerability assessments varies based on an organization's risk profile, criticality of assets, and rate of new vulnerability discoveries. Regular assessments are advisable to ensure system and network security and comply with industry regulations. The frequency could range from annual to quarterly or even monthly, depending on the organization's needs.

There are several instances when an organization may want to conduct a vulnerability assessment, such as:

  1. Upon implementing new systems or networks - to ensure their security from the onset.
  2. After a cyber attack - to identify weaknesses and prevent future attacks.
  3. Compliance with regulatory requirements - some industries, like healthcare and finance, have strict regulations in place.
  4. Major changes to infrastructure - such as software or hardware upgrades, to avoid new vulnerabilities.
  5. Periodic software/firmware updates - to check for new vulnerabilities.
  6. After a significant data breach - to determine the cause and prevent future breaches.
  7. During security audits - to ensure ongoing security of systems and networks.
