Web Application Firewalls: More than just a compliance checkbox?

Presented by

Ramon Krikken, Burton Group Analyst

About this talk

The discussion on whether Web Application Firewalls (WAFs) make a good application security control is still very much alive. Some consider it a highly effective control that satisfies PCI-DSS, while others do not believe it is at all a useful replacement of, or addition to software (code) review. Although it is indeed no substitute for well-designed and -built software, the capabilities of a modern WAF generally go beyond basic bug protection and may realize value even for those organizations that have existing software security capabilities. This presentation will explore pros and cons of WAF capabilities, how these may be utilized to enhance the application architecture, and what the future may bring for WAF.
