Allesta Web Application Firewall provides a proactive application level protection through instant detection and prevention of attacks.

Allesta defends your web infrastructure against these threats by detecting and preventing the application level attacks.

Network firewalls or Intrusion Detection / Prevention Solutions protect against network layer attacks, they do little to prevent application level attacks that are used to exploit the vulnerabilities found in the enterprise web infrastructure.

Web application protection is much more difficult than detecting and preventing network level attacks. Because the combination of requests and responses in a user’s session varies through applications, so it cannot be defined in a generic way as it can be in a network level IDS/IPS system.

Allesta delivers application protection against classes of attacks with preconfigured rules and policies.
