Qualys Announces Web Application Firewall (WAF) Beta Availability

Qualys, Inc.

Qualys today announced that it will release the beta of its new cloud WAF solution as an Amazon Machine Image (AMI) and as a VMware virtual image for on-premise deployments starting August 1. Qualys’ new WAF service is delivered through the multitenant, highly scalable QualysGuard Cloud Platform, designed to provide:

  • Real-time application defense, blocking attacks against websites in real-time.
  • Application hardening, minimizing application attack surfaces by providing a shield around coding defects, application framework flaws, web server bugs and loose configurations.
  • Low-cost, automated service maintained and updated by Qualys’ security experts providing new defenses and features transparently to users and site visitors.
  • A multitude of deployment options for distributed WAF protection points managed through a common, central policy administration and reporting interface with APIs for integration.

Qualys will showcase these new capabilities this week at Black Hat USA 2013 Briefings – booth #401 – on July 31-August 1. Read the full announcement.
