[Ep.2] Driving Superior Customer Experience & Outpacing Competitors: Modern WAFs

In 2021, a web application firewall (WAF) is essential. Amid prolonged remote working and the pandemic-driven surge in the use of digital services and eCommerce solutions, organizations are facing a bigger threat from malicious website visitors than ever before. In the current day, hackers injecting malicious code instead of an email address to create an account, bypassing web application layers and instantly getting access to SQL databases, are a very real threat.

The risk to businesses is enormous - no organization can face losing customer trust and data in a crowded, competitive marketplace. But there is a solution: the web application firewall (WAF). WAFs safeguard company data by protecting servers from hackers. All incoming requests are inspected, bad traffic is filtered and attacks are prevented. An integral component of application protection, they’re also a requirement for complying with PCI-DSS, and help protect against the OWASP Top 10.

However, not all WAFs are created equal. In 2021, It’s crucial to have a modern and lightweight WAF that maps well to business requirements, drives superior customer experience and ultimately helps organizations to outpace their competitors. In episode 2 of Fuel Business Growth and Innovation with New Application Delivery Strategies we’re sharing just what the modern WAF can do.

Join us to hear:

- How modern WAFs address some of the most difficult challenges facing modern DevOps environments, including integrating security controls directly into the development automation pipeline
- Best practices for applying and managing security for modern and distributed application environments such as containers and microservices
- Why best-in-class WAF strategies support container-based environments and complement components like API gateways
- And more

  • Running Modern APIs with NGINX Unit and NGINX Web Server Sep 28 2021 3:00 pm UTC 89 mins
    Liam Crilly - Sr Dir, Product Management | Timo Stark - Product Management Engineer II
    Building and deploying cloud native APIs is a complex operation, and can require a multitude of components. In this workshop we focus on the fundamentals of deploying the runtime API code and publishing the API through an API gateway. To achieve this we use NGINX Unit as a polyglot application server and NGINX web server as an API gateway. With this combination we deliver a solution lightweight enough for dev and strong enough for production.

    You will learn how to use NGINX Unit to run one or more apps and APIs in a variety of languages, including seamlessly deploying new versions. You will then see the best practices for how to configure NGINX to perform the common API gateway functions of request routing, rate limiting, and authentication for multiple APIs. We will also touch on advanced use cases such as HTTP method enforcement, and JSON validation.

    No previous experience of NGINX or NGINX Unit is required, but a basic knowledge of HTTP and JSON/REST APIs is valuable.

  • Scale, Security, Visibility for Container Apps Sep 21 2021 3:00 pm UTC 46 mins
    Owen Garrett, Head of Product, NGINX
    Does your journey to the cloud include containers? If so, you’re not alone. According to Cisco’s Global Cloud Index, 85% of new app workload instances are container-based; that number will reach 95% by 2021. As adoption rises, many organizations find they also need to adopt Kubernetes to automate and orchestrate their container environments. Unfortunately, many teams hit bottlenecks in securing and scaling Kubernetes in production. How do you overcome these security and scalability challenges without limiting developer flexibility?

    In this session, we’ll discuss solutions using open source projects that enable developers and systems teams to manage Ingress routing, load balancing, and application services in container and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) deployments. We’ll discuss how all of this can be automated by deploying API-driven technologies as part of your CI/CD pipeline.

    Presenter Bio:

    Owen is a senior member of the NGINX Product Management team, covering open source and commercial NGINX products. He holds a particular responsibility for microservices and Kubernetes-centric solutions. He’s constantly amazed by the ingenuity of NGINX users, and still learns of new ways to use NGINX with every discussion.
