Protect Your on-premises AWS Workloads with Prophaze WAF
Deploying Prophaze WAF on your on-premises AWS workloads allows you to have an extra layer of security to safeguard your applications from malicious attacks. Including web based attacks such as SQL injection, cross-site scripting (XSS), BoT protection, and distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks. Offers real-time monitoring, alerting, and reporting, which helps you quickly identify and respond to potential security threats.
Assuming you have deployed your application in the AWS cloud. Here are a few steps on how to deploy the on-premises Prophaze WAF in your AWS cloud.
A Comprehensive Guide to Deployment
Step 1: EC2 Instance Allocation in AWS
To allocate an Elastic Compute (EC2) instance in your AWS cloud, we need to create a strategic capacity planning process that involves evaluating application requirements, user demand, and peak load resources. By analyzing traffic patterns, we can determine the optimal EC2 VM size to support your workload. We can allocate the appropriate elastic compute once we have determined the required capacity.
Step 2: EC2 Remote Access
When dealing with EC2 remote access, it is crucial to work with a trusted team to guarantee on-premises cloud security and protection. The EC2 remote access is provided to the Prophaze team which handles the installation and precise configuration of WAF to meet your specific needs.
Step 3: Linking Dashboard
After installing the WAF in your AWS cloud environment, we’ll link it to your dashboard account from our dashboard (dash.prophaze.com). So that you can easily monitor and manage your web application security. With real-time threat monitoring, automated blocking of malicious traffic, and granular security policies, our WAF ensures that your web applications are protected against known and unknown threats.
Step 4: Onboarding Dashboard
During the onboarding process of your application via our dashboard, we provide an option for selecting the region, by choosing the customer AWS on-premises environment. This option ensures that the WAF is installed in the region that best meets your needs, whether it’s for compliance reasons or to improve performance.
Step 5: Dashboard Completion via AWS ELB
After assigning the EC2 to your AWS cloud, an amazon Elastic Load Balancing (AWS ELB) will be created, and the current DNS will point to the IP address of the AWS ELB.
This completes the onboarding process of your web application onto the Prophaze WAF in your AWS cloud environment. By assigning EC2, installing the WAF, and configuring the AWS ELB, your web application is now highly available and secured against known and unknown threats. Defend your cloud environment from a mixture of threats by securing your website and application with Prophaze’s powerful WAF solution.
