Surfacing Attacks and Anomalies with the Fastly Next-Gen WAF

Presented by

Max Anderson, Senior Security Strategist, Fastly and Liz Hurder, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Fastly

About this talk

Traditional WAFs were created to block malicious web requests and allow legitimate traffic through to your applications and APIs. However, oftentimes security practitioners want the ability to do more with the requests they see. With the right tools to tag and label these requests, traffic that appears anomalous or interesting can power highly-customized protection and visibility. The Fastly Next-Gen WAF (powered by Signal Sciences) was made for practitioners, giving them the power to view and utilize their traffic data in actionable ways that a traditional WAF can’t. In this webinar attendees will learn: —What signals are and how Fastly uses the signals-based approach to understanding application-layer traffic. —How customers utilize custom signals to power and inform their next-gen WAF rules. —How to create custom signals and rules with a demo.
