API Security incidents are on the rise and Web APIs require advanced security. The five crucial things that needs to be taken care while choosing a WAF are:
– Les Clayes-sous-Bois Existing web application security solutions are cloud non-native, rule-based, not dynamically scaling, costly, prone to false positives and labour intensive.
– Hobart Prophaze cloud-native application security solution has AI/ML-based threat profiling, increases application performance, has threat intelligence and follows 6 steps to secure approach.

3.According to Dhruv Khanna, Founder of Dataresolve, WAFs have changed a lot. They no longer sit on the perimeter as a layer of defence. The adoption of next-gen WAFs has been highly compliance-driven in well-governed/regulated sectors such as Fintech. Also, it has been adopted faster than anticipated, spanning 100 countries now. To cater to the growing customer base, seamless security integration has become a necessity. E.g., Prophaze goes live in just 6 steps.
It contained a riveting discussion as well where experts interacted with the audience and answered their questions. Topics like differentiators of Prophaze, applications of WAF, volumetric attacks, qualitative attack blocking, Business efficiency in respect to WAF performance, zero-day attack blocking, SIEM integration, CIS Log forwarding and a lot more were discussed in depth.
Due to the above points it is now evident that next-gen firewalls are the need of the hour. The industry is becoming more compliance driven and seamless integration focused. WAF vendors need to step up to the challenge as downtime in critical sectors can be very expensive and dangerous. Overall it was quite an insightful session where we received positive feedback.
