FortiWeb: Web Application Firewall (WAF) & API Protection

 

Machine Learning Enabled Protection for Business-Critical Applications

What is a Web Application Firewall?

FortiWeb, Fortinet’s Web Application Firewall, protects your business-critical web applications from attacks that target known and unknown vulnerabilities.

 

The attack surface of your web applications evolves rapidly, changing every time you deploy new features, update existing ones, or expose new web APIs. You need a solution that can keep up.  FortiWeb is that solution.

FortiWeb’s WAF Solution

FortiWeb WAFs provide advanced features that defend your web applications and APIs from known and zero-day threats. Using an advanced multi-layered approach, FortiWeb protects against the OWASP Top 10 and more. FortiWeb ML customizes the protection of each application, providing robust protection without requiring the time-consuming manual tuning required by other solutions. With ML, FortiWeb identifies anomalous behavior and, more importantly, distinguishes between malicious and benign anomalies. The solution also features robust bot mitigation capabilities, allowing benign bots to connect (e.g. search engines) while blocking malicious bot activity.

FortiWeb offers deployment options that can protect business applications, no matter where the application is hosted. Options include hardware appliances, virtual machines, and containers that can be deployed in the data center, in cloud environments, or in the cloud-native SaaS solution, FortiWeb Cloud WAF as a Service.
