Web Application Security

Stop Web-Based Application Threats

The continued evolution of the threat landscape has enabled individuals and groups to launch orchestrated attacks on organizations’ infrastructure for criminal or political gain. Attackers now use a wealth of methods to infect hosts and control compromised systems through organized botnets for automated phishing, spamming, and DDoS attacks. DoS attacks are morphing from traditional network layer attacks to sophisticated layer 7 attacks targeting application resources rather than bandwidth, flying under the radar of traditional DoS mitigation tools. Organizations now need new tools to protect against these emerging threats and the more traditional hacking methods such as SQL Injection and Cross-site-scripting.

Layered Threat Protection

Fortinet's Web Application Security solutions provide specialized, layered application threat protection for medium and large enterprises, application service providers, and SaaS providers. FortiWeb web application firewall protects your web-based applications and internet-facing data. Automated protection and layered security protects web applications from layer 7 DoS and sophisticated attacks such as SQL Injection, Cross Site Scripting attacks and data loss. Web Vulnerability Assessment module adds scanning capabilities to provide a comprehensive solution to meet your PCI DSS section 6.6 requirements.

Intelligent Load Balancing

The solution drastically reduces the time required to protect your regulated internet-facing data and leverages an intelligent, application-aware load-balancing engine to distribute traffic and route content across multiple web servers. This load balancing increases application performance, improves resource utilization and application stability while reducing server response times. Data compression and Independent SSL encryption processor increase transaction throughput and reduce processing requirements from web servers, providing additional acceleration for web application traffic.

Solution Guides & White Papers



We have evaluated security solutions from various vendors but very few had solutions specifically tailored to the needs of MSSPs. The ability of the FortiGate solution to virtually segment each customer's connection and customize its configuration and profile to access all or several of the security applications we offer was decisive in our choice. FortiGate's multi-threat security platform is definitely a great option for large data center deployments such as ours.
