The Limelight Web Application Firewall (WAF) blocks attacks on web servers by filtering web traffic using rules from the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) Top 10 most critical application security risks as well as custom-developed WAF rules that are designed to protect your specific web server environment. Limelight WAF uses machine-based learning with automatic remediation capabilities to provide realtime protection against currently known as well as emerging "zero-day" web attacks. When a new vulnerability is identified, a security rule is created and pushed to all WAF nodes in the Limelight network to ensure malicious traffic is blocked from reaching your web servers.
Limelight's 24/7 Security Operations Center provides daily threat intelligence monitoring with vulnerability analysis of new threats. Limelight's SOC monitors dark internet blogs and industry bulletin boards for new threats. and creates new security rules that provide the most up to date WAF protection.
