How It Works
Web Application Firewall
Using the Web Application Firewall, you get an industry best security mechanism that sits between your websites and the internet allowing your traffic to be filtered and blocked before it can reach your websites.
With the Web Application Firewall you also get improved security with Virtual Hardening. When we setup the firewall, we will confirm your IPs and restrict access to all non-allowed directories automatically. Now, you don’t need to run any security plugins or modify your configuration, all hardening is done virtually and protects your server instantly.
Virtual patching protects your website even when you are using outdated applications with known vulnerabilities by protecting you from attacks that are targeting known exploits.
