How Blindspot's WAAP secures your digital assets

Your application is shielded against all malicious unwanted traffic and threats.

Our mechanism operates by assessing each incoming request, determining its intent, and accordingly, either blocking or allowing its passage to the web server. This vigilant evaluation is further bolstered by the support of our expansive global network and strategically located data centers, ensuring a fortified defense perimeter around your digital assets.

Blindspot delivers comprehensive DDoS protection, encompassing state-of-the-art components essential for robust attack detection and mitigation. Our solution extends to safeguarding web applications and APIs through meticulous filtering, monitoring, and blocking of malicious HTTP/S requests.

Cutting edge request inspection and Scoring

Based on our scoring mechanism, we can identify different attacks, including zero-day variants, facilitate the distinction between harmless and malicious requests, as well as between legitimate and malicious bots. This systematic scoring is not static, but continuously evolves using machine learning algorithms. This further increases the accuracy of our protection framework.

Two WAAP implementation options

WAAP Secure Path

Exclusive Control of TLS/SSL Certificates - Ideal for Privacy-Conscious

Rapid, Seamless Integration: Deploy directly on your infrastructure for immediate implementation.

Data and Certificate Sovereignty: Retain complete control of all your certificates and sensitive data on-premise.

Limited DDoS Protection: Native protection scope excludes certain DDoS attack vectors. For comprehensive coverage, consider integration with our cloud-based solutions.

WAAP Cloud

Leverage Our Robust Cloud Infrastructure for Enhanced Security.

Advanced Request Scrutiny: Benefit from our high-capacity, global infrastructure for in-depth request analysis and fortified protection.

Comprehensive DDoS Safeguard: Secure against all forms of DDoS attacks, leveraging the extensive capabilities of our cloud service.

Domain and Certificate Management: Requires redirecting your domain/host name to our cloud infrastructure and entrusting us with your SSL/TLS certificates.

Frequently asked questions

As your application receives requests through the underlying service, these requests are channeled to the Blindspot security engine for assessment against the defined rules. If a request aligns with a condition set forth in the rules, Blindspot WAAP instructs the underlying service to either block or allow the request, based on the designated action. Blindspot WAAP operates on both positive and negative security models.

Blindspot WAAP (Web Application and API Protection) is a specialized service engineered to fortify web applications against a myriad of threats. It empowers users to configure rules to authorize, block, or monitor web requests based on specific parameters. These parameters include IP addresses, HTTP headers, HTTP body content, URI strings, and common vulnerabilities like SQL injection and cross-site scripting.

Whitelisting: This model employs an "allow list", utilizing machine learning and behavioral analytics to discern the traffic that the WAAP authorizes, while blocking all other traffic.

Blacklisting: Contrarily, a "block list" is utilized here, referencing updated signatures of recognized vulnerabilities to designate the traffic that the WAAP denies, permitting all other traffic.

Hybrid Approach: This methodology combines both positive and negative security models, employing a blend of allow and block lists to determine the traffic that's granted passage.

Blindspot WAAP offers a robust shield against prevalent digital threats and targets application-level vulnerabilities, including the top 10 risks pinpointed by OWASP. Some examples are:

Cross-Site Scripting (XSS): A tactic where adversaries inject malicious scripts into authentic websites. Upon user visitation to these tainted sites, the malicious code executes in their web browsers, facilitating data theft or user impersonation by the attackers.

Application Layer DDoS Attacks: These denote DoS or DDoS assaults targeting the application layer, with common variants like HTTP/S floods, SSL-driven attacks, slowloris attacks, and brute force methods.

SQL Injection: Similar to XSS in execution, attackers exploit vulnerabilities to inject malicious SQL commands into an application, leading to unauthorized data access, modification, or deletion.

Zero-Day Attacks: Occur when malevolent entities leverage an undisclosed security lapse or software vulnerability before the developer releases a remedial patch.

The necessity for setup alterations depends on customer requirements. Blindspot WAAP supports two models – In-Line and/or Out Of Path, eliminating the need for fundamental infrastructure modifications.
