Web Application Firewalls: Patching, SDLC Key for Security Compliance

Web Application Firewalls: Patching, SDLC Key for Security Compliance

Cover

Web applications, in comparison with networks and data center platforms and hardware, have been left quite vulnerable to attacks, including SQL injection and cross-site scripting (XSS). It has been estimated that the banking industry alone would require 400 days to patch 90% of the flaws in their applications.

One solution may be the use of web application firewalls (WAFs), which work in tandem with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) to protect flaws in applications by monitoring traffic coming into a network and scrutinizing requests headed to Web servers for security violations or malicious code.

Read this eGuide now to learn more about this approach to patch vulnerabilities in web applications and protect your enterprise from current and future threats.
