Implementation

Optimizing AWS WAF: Strategies and Execution

“We have achieved this by implementing managed and customized rules after understanding our client’s architecture for functionality and user interactions and conducting an assessment of potential security threats based on impacts. We have also consulted with the industry best practices and security standards like OWASP guidelines to implement the best practices for our clients.”

  • Customized rule implementation.
  • Understanding client architecture for targeted security.
  • Adherence to industry best practices and security standards.

Usage

Enhancing Resilience with Advanced WAF Strategies

Using WAF for application’s security vulnerabilities like DDoS mitigation has allowed us to take advantage of advanced rate-based and IP-based rules to define thresholds and limits for acceptable traffic rates and IP addresses. Hence, limitation of bottlenecks like severe disruption, data loss, and down time have been our primary goals while we implement this service

  • Utilizing advanced rate-based and IP-based rules.
  • Setting thresholds for traffic rates and IP addresses.
  • Goals of mitigating bottlenecks and disruptions.

Integration

Seamless AWS Integration for Enhanced Protection

We have also used AWS Firewall Manager to automatically deploy defined WAF rules across accounts in case of multi-account architecture. Overall, since AWS WAF is integrated with services like Amazon Cloudfront, Application Load Balancer (ALB) and Amazon API Gateway, it becomes easier to protect both the internal and external facing resources

  • Utilizing AWS Firewall Manager for multi-account deployment.
  • Integration with Amazon Cloudfront, ALB, and Amazon API Gateway.
