Cloud-based WAF

Web servers with critical data are prone to being probed regularly by criminals looking for any of a plethora of weaknesses and exploits that might lead to the system being compromised, the data harvested, and the server repurposed as a slave to the criminal for future attacks.

A cloud-based WAF is probably the simplest method of protecting a vulnerable web server from the constant stream of attacks looking for holes in the configuration or exploiting zero-day vulnerabilities in software. Deployment only requires changing DNS records for the domains involved, and all web traffic for the server can be screened for specific threat profiles associated with attack traffic before being passed to the server.
