Vulnerability Assessment Plus Web Application Firewall (VA+WAF)
Source: F5 Networks
New technology developed by WhiteHat Security and F5 Networks enables organizations to immediately mitigate discovered vulnerabilities using a web application firewall. WhiteHat's Sentinel service provides continuous assessments of web applications for vulnerabilities. Once detected and validated by WhiteHat, detailed information about these vulnerabilities are passed to the F5 BIG-IP Application Security Manager (ASM) web application firewall, where they are implemented as blocking rules and prohibit exploiting the detected vulnerability. New attack techniques are being published all the time with the existing ones often becoming ever more powerful. To compensate, new, highly accurate solutions are demanded to help organizations identify emerging threats, react faster to them, and adapt better to a constantly changing landscape.
