Benefits

FortiWeb is designed specifically to protect web servers.

FortiWeb web application firewalls (WAF) provide specialized application layer threat detection and protection for many HTTP or HTTPS services, including:

  • Apache Tomcat
  • nginx
  • Microsoft IIS
  • JBoss
  • IBM Lotus Domino
  • Microsoft SharePoint
  • Microsoft Outlook Web App (OWA)
  • RPC and ActiveSync for Microsoft Exchange Server
  • Joomla
  • WordPress

FortiWeb’s integrated web vulnerability scanner can drastically reduces challenges associated with protecting regulated and confidential data by detecting your exposure to the latest threats, especially the OWASP Top 10.

In addition, FortiWeb’s XML firewall and denial-of-service (DoS) attack-prevention protect your Internet-facing web-based applications from attack and data theft. Using advanced techniques to provide bidirectional protection against sophisticated threats like SQL injection and cross-site scripting (XSS), FortiWeb helps you prevent identity theft, financial fraud, and corporate espionage. FortiWeb delivers the technology you need to monitor and enforce government regulations, industry best practices, and internal security policies, including firewalling and patching requirements from PCI DSS.

FortiWeb’s application-aware firewalling and load balancing engine can:

  • Secure HTTP applications that are often gateways into valuable databases
  • Prevent and reverse defacement
  • Improve application stability
  • Monitor servers for downtime & connection load
  • Reduces response times
  • Accelerate SSL/TLS *
  • Accelerate compression/decompression
  • Rewrite content on the fly

* On VM models, acceleration is due to offloading the cryptography burden from the back-end server. On hardware models with ASIC chips, cryptography is also hardware-accelerated.

FortiWeb significantly reduces deployment costs by consolidating WAF, hardware acceleration, load balancing, and vulnerability scanning into a single device with no per-user pricing. Those features drastically reduce the time required to protect your regulated, Internet-facing data and eases the challenges associated with policy enforcement and regulatory compliance.
