Help AG has introduced a completely cloud-delivered managed Advanced Web Application Firewall (AWAF) solution that helps organisations that rely on web-based applications enhance their security posture.

Commenting on the launch, Stephan Berner, chief executive officer at Help AG, said: “With more and more applications moving to the cloud, customers are increasingly exposed to sophisticated attacks wherein hackers take advantage of attack vectors that bypass traditional network and host-based security technologies. Help AG’s Managed AWAF service enhances customers’ cybersecurity posture and offers them industry-leading protection and an assurance of uninterrupted web-hosted business applications.”

Berner added: “In-house security teams often struggle to keep pace with the organisation’s digital transformation mandates. They require the help of industry leading cybersecurity expertise to build application layer security measures to protect web applications as well as the underlying servers and databases that support them. The service provides them with round-the-clock proactive defense, support and management, no matter where the end user is located.”

By the virtue of being purely cloud-operated, customers benefit from a deployment agnostic service, which can seamlessly integrate with any application or web server hosted anywhere in the UAE, regardless of whether the end customer’s web server is deployed in their own premises, at a private data center or hosted in the public cloud. Based on the simple design architecture of point and redirect, the customer’s web application traffic is forwarded through route injection on the DNS towards Help AG’s Managed AWAF service module, to examine and filter the inbound traffic and enforce the rule sets based on the customised policies.
