Ways to secure Web apps: WAFs, RASP and more

Sponsored by SearchSecurity.com

Protecting a Web application increasingly means tuning your protections to the individual characteristics of your applications. There’s more than one way to go about this, though. In this three-part guide we review best practices for taking your Web self-defense to the most advanced level possible with today’s latest technology.

In the first chapter we detail the latest in Web application firewall (WAF) technology, and in the next delve deeper to explain how WAFs can work together with application security testing as part of the secure software development. We devote the final chapter to the latest innovation in app security testing -- that is, Runtime Application Self-Protection, or RASP -- which attaches protection directly to the application, after delivery.

Web apps face hackers with attacks more advanced than ever; with this guide, InfoSec professionals will be better equipped to secure the apps their enterprise network supports.
