On-premises means that a business installs and controls its own software, hardware, or infrastructure within its physical space. Prophaze WAF supports both public cloud integration and on-premises deployment.
However, for industries such as healthcare or banking, on-premises deployment is mandatory because when we provide WAF, all traffic goes through servers. Therefore, we support on-premises deployment to ensure compliance with security and privacy regulations.
How Prophaze Supports On-Premises: The Premises Strategy
Consider that you run a small business already deployed in the cloud server. And want an extra layer of protection to keep track of your information and client contacts.
By deploying a Prophaze WAF on-premises, enterprises can gain greater control over the security of their web applications, customize security policies to suit their needs, and integrate the solution into their existing security architecture. This can enhance their defense against web-based attacks, as they retain full control over the software and data, which is installed on their own PCs or other devices.
Here Comes Difference
Prophase WAF can be installed on any server, including Azure, AWS, GCP, Vultr, OVHCloud, or any other. This allows for easy resource allocation in any region without limitations. Additionally, we can install our application on their virtual machine, and Prophase WAF automatically integrates with the application so traffic can flow through their servers.
Prophaze WAF protects web applications from attacks such as SQL injection, cross-site scripting (XSS), and cross-site request forgery (CSRF), by inspecting incoming traffic and blocking malicious requests. On-premises WAF can be integrated with existing security infrastructure such as firewalls and intrusion prevention systems (IPS), providing a comprehensive security solution.
Enhance Your Business with Cloud Service
Prophaze is specifically designed for public cloud environments and based on- premises that customers can deploy their software on their own server. Your website, database, and any related hardware and network infrastructure are completely under your control.
In conclusion, as more businesses adopt public cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform, integrating with these public cloud environments can be advantageous. However, Choosing on-premises deployment for WAF software gives businesses complete control over their data, software, and hardware, but also requires them to handle maintenance and security.
