AWS Web Application Firewall (WAF)

Protect your web applications and APIs from common exploits

AWS WAF protects web applications and APIs from common exploits and vulnerabilities, safeguarding application availability and security. It enables monitoring and management of web requests directed at secured AWS resources like Amazon CloudFront distributions, Amazon API Gateway REST APIs, Application Load Balancers, and AWS AppSync GraphQL APIs. It is also used to inspect web requests based on specified rules, such as IP address and request rate, and can handle incoming requests using methods, like count, block, allow, or present challenges like CAPTCHA puzzles to client browsers. Administration is simplified with AWS Firewall Manager, which applies firewall rules across multiple accounts and resources, ensuring consistent protection as new resources are added.
