Array Networks, announces the release of its upgraded enterprise edition of Web Application Firewall (WAF) that integrates with the company’s Network functions platform (AVX) for application delivery and load balancing. Keeping performance and security in mind, Array has upgraded its existing WAF incorporating a number of techniques based on machine learning algorithms for detecting anomalies and defending against currently unknown threats. Array’s AVX Series now comes with an advanced version of Enterprise WAF with ADC on Network functions Platform AVX which improves both security and performance. WAF + ADC solutions protect web applications from cyber-attacks at the application level while enhancing high performance, fault tolerance, and scalability in application delivery. The solution consolidates multiple or third party network & security functions into a single purpose build virtualized AVX platform.
To develop the latest enterprise edition WAF and integrate it with the Network functions platform, Array Networks worked with researchers from Positive Technologies, one of the largest cyber security research firms in Europe. The resulting solution provides continuous protection of applications with pinpoint detection and blocking of attacks including OWASP Top 10 and WASC attacks while stopping DDoS on the application (L7) level, bots, and attacks on users and APIs.
