Array AWF Series WAF Appliances
Enterprise & Government
Enterprise and government Web sites and applications are increasingly the target of malicious attacks. Array's AWF Series WAF can protect against the most widespread attack mechanisms while providing active incident response to halt hackers in their tracks, with post-incident analysis and diagnosis to guide in strengthening servers against future attacks.
For Software-as-a-Service providers, the AWF Series protects the most vital business asset – the software applications that generate revenues – from malicious attacks, tampering and other security incidents. Infrastructure-as-a-Service providers can also leverage the AWF Series to offer WAF-as-a-Service for customers operating eCommerce sites and other Web assets in their cloud.
Like enterprises and governments, eCommerce sites face a growing threat from Web site attacks and tampering, with the added danger of the loss of customer financial or other private information. Array's AWF Series protects eCommerce sites through a strong portfolio of tools such as continuous scanning, active incident response and post-incident analysis/diagnosis, and much more.
Continuous Threat Scanning
Array's Web application firewall continuously scans servers for known vulnerabilities, and scans applications for SQL injection or cross-site scripting vulnerabilities. In addition, a sophisticated rules library protects against a wide variety of Web server attacks, prevents inadvertent information disclosure, and protects and detects Web site embedded Trojans.
During a security incident, the AWF Series effectively detects, blocks and prevents further intrusion, SQL injection, cross-site scripting and other types of Web application attacks. After a security incident, the AWF Series diagnoses for critical security issues such as Web site tampering and malicious code, allowing administrators to reduce security risk and maintain the Web servers' credibility.
Array's AWF Series WAF provides a comprehensive solution (WebKeeper) for website defacement attacks. The solution protects websites from large-scale and continuous website defacement attacks while consuming only a few system resources of the Web servers. It also provides an automatic website content distribution function to allow website administrators to securely distribute routine website content updates and restore web pages that have been tampered with without manual intervention.
Array's AWF Series protects websites from HTTP attacks, such as HTTP flooding and CC attacks, as well as a wide variety of Layer 3 and Layer 4 DDoS/DoS attacks, such as Land, Smurf, ICMP flooding, TCP flooding, and UDP flooding.
Comprehensive Server Protection
The AWF Series includes key network firewall features to provide comprehensive Layer 1 through 7 protection for Web application servers, including packet filtering, blacklist/whitelist, URL-based access control and other basic protection functions at the network laer.
Easy Configuration & Management
Configuration of Web application firewalls has been notoriously more complex than that of network-level firewalls. The AWF Series provides configuration guidance to assist administrators in accurately configuring and setting up the Web application firewall.
The AWF Series' powerful equipment monitoring functions allow administrators to monitor – in real time – the associated equipment's working condition, attack threats and other system information, allowing timely discovery and elimination of network problems, and promoting stable operation.
The AWF Series supports three separate administration roles: administrator, account administrator and audit administrator. Using distinct roles can assist in meeting quality standards and the audit needs of regulatory and other requirements.
