Brief Overview

To help companies achieve an always-on, comprehensive security posture, Neustar recently announced the addition of a web application firewall (WAF) solution to its always-on DDoS mitigation service, SiteProtect. The Neustar WAF is cloud-provider, hardware, and CDN agnostic, making it compatible wherever applications are hosted. Integrated with Neustar SiteProtect –an always-on DDoS mitigation service –WAF users now have a holistic, layered protection stack that proactively prevents bot-based volumetric attacks as well as threats that target the application layer, such as SQL, XSS, CSRF, session hijacking, data exfiltration, and zero-day vulnerabilities. WAFs are especially important to industries such as health, finance, government, and e-commerce. As threats continue to evolve, Neustar’s UltraWAF continues to protect customers’ infrastructures and capabilities. With the increase of malicious activity tied to the onset of COVID-19, many organizations must continuously adapt to a rapidly evolving threatscape. Neustar’s UltraWAF protects organizations’ infrastructures and critical capabilities and helps to mitigate exposure to vulnerabilities, missed patching updates, distributed architecture and legacy systems – protections that are especially critical in industries such as healthcare/biotech, finance, government and e-commerce.
