Signal Sciences Adds Cloud WAF to Award-Winning Solution

Sponsored by Businesswire

, the fastest growing web application security company in
the world, today announced the addition of Cloud
to its award-winning, modern Web
application firewall
(WAF) and runtime
application self-protection
(RASP) solution. With no installation
required, Signal Sciences Cloud
gives businesses instant visibility and protection for their
most critical web applications, APIs, and microservices from real
attacks and threat scenarios in a matter of minutes. Unique to Signal
Sciences, enterprises can choose from the most flexible menu of
deployment options on any cloud, any container, any PaaS and any IaaS,
with full feature parity across deployments and a unified management

Web application attacks continue to be the most common attack vector for
data breaches, according to Verizon’s
2019 Data Breach Investigations Report
. The report found that half
of organizations take months or longer to discover breaches. With
attackers leveraging persistent attack methods across an ever widening
attack surface, enterprises need proactive, automated application
security and visibility to stop web attacks before a breach starts.

“Advanced web application attacks are on the rise. Application security
solutions that provide superior detection and protection for all modern
application architectures with minimal configuration, tuning, and
management are highly appealing to enterprises,” said Daniel Kennedy,
research director at 451 Research. “Signal Sciences fits this bill, and
its Cloud WAF provides a powerful deployment option and the flexibility
that many enterprises seek today.”

“With enterprise architectures coming in more shapes and sizes than
ever, flexible deployment is critically important,” said Darrell Arms,
architect at Tevora. “Signal Sciences has always been at the forefront
of industry-leading solutions that are purpose-built for today’s
companies, and this offering is no different. Signal Sciences Cloud WAF
is the only modern WAF that helps organizations operate more efficiently
by allowing security teams to focus on higher value tasks, and enabling
developers to deploy quickly within the CI/CD process, without
constraints. It is incredibly exciting for customers.”

Fast and easy to implement, Signal Sciences Cloud
protects cloud-native, legacy and serverless applications
regardless of where they’re hosted. With just a simple DNS change,
businesses route all web requests to the Signal Sciences Cloud Engine
for monitoring and decision-making. Customers access actionable insights
through a single, intuitive dashboard and leverage DevOps tool
integrations just as they would with any other Signal Sciences
deployment option.

Signal Sciences Cloud WAF Key Benefits:

  • No installation or maintenance: Enterprises gain superior web
    app layer protection with a quick DNS change.
  • Effective protection: Ninety-five percent of customers use
    Signal Sciences live in production with automated blocking powered by
    its patented SmartParse technology, which accurately inspects,
    detects, and blocks malicious web requests without signatures or rules
  • Deployment in minutes, not days or months: Averaging less than
    one hour, Signal Sciences Cloud WAF deploys faster than legacy WAF
    solutions — which can take weeks or months to install — to increase
    operational efficiency and provide rapid time-to-value for businesses.
  • Protection for any application hosted anywhere: Signal Sciences
    covers cloud, container, on-premise, and hybrid environments.
  • Full feature parity across deployment options: Cloud WAF
    includes all the same detection and protection capabilities as Signal
    Sciences’ other deployment methods, including actionable insights,
    reporting, and DevOps tool integrations.
  • Unified management: Actionable information and key metrics for
    any deployment are accessible through a single centralized interface,
    unlike legacy WAF solutions that require enterprises to login to
    multiple management portals.

“We’re excited for what Signal Sciences Cloud WAF offers enterprises,
particularly those that have lived through the cumbersome and lengthy
installation and maintenance processes of legacy WAF solutions,” said
Hala Al-Adwan, vice president of technology at Signal Sciences. “Now
security and DevOps teams can protect all of their web layer assets
across distributed infrastructure quickly and easily, and benefit from
the flexibility and deployment options they need to stay ahead of
security threats and operate more efficiently at scale.”
