FortiWeb : Protection des applications Web et des API - Cas d'utilisation

Les applications Web et les API sont devenues des outils de choix pour concevoir des applications métiers cruciales, ces dernières devant être adaptées aux besoins métiers. FortiWeb offre les performances, les fonctions de gestion et la protection étendue nécessaires pour sécuriser les applications web modernes. 


Fonctionnalités et avantages

Une protection éprouvée des applications web et des API

FortiWeb protège contre toutes les menaces du Top-10 OWASP, les attaques DDoS, les attaques de bots et davantage, pour défendre les applications stratégiques web métiers et les API. 

Une détection des menaces basée sur le Machine Learning

Au-delà de la mise à jour régulière des signatures et des nombreuses autres couches de protection, FortiWeb capitalise sur le Machine Learning pour déjouer les attaques zero-day et minimiser le nombre de faux-positifs. 

Intégration dans la Security Fabric

L'intégration avec les pare-feux FortiGate et avec FortiSandbox assure une protection optimale contre les menaces APT

Traitement analytique graphique et avancé

Les outils de reporting graphique de FortiWeb offrent une analyse détaillée des sources d'attaque et autres éléments clés, pour concrétiser un niveau de visibilité que d'autres outils WAF ne peuvent fournir 

Outils de gestion des faux-positifs

Accélération matérielle

FortiWeb offre des performances optimales pour ses fonctions WAF et de chiffrement/déchiffrement

Solution WAF de FortiWeb

Les WAF FortiWeb proposent des fonctionnalités évoluées qui protègent vos applications web et vos API contre les menaces connues et zero-day. En déployant une sécurité multi-couche, FortiWeb permet de lutter contre les menaces, dont celles du Top 10 OWASP. Le Machine Learning de FortiWeb personnalise la protection de chaque application et propose une sécurité robuste. Contrairement à nombre de WAF du marché, l'utilisateur est libéré des tâches manuelles de paramétrage. Cet apprentissage (Machine Learning) permet à FortiWeb d'identifier toute anomalie comportementale, mais également de différencier les anomalies bénignes et malveillantes. Cette solution offre une fonction de neutralisation des bots: seuls ceux légitimes (moteur de recherche par exemple) sont autorisés, bloquant l’activité des bots malvaillants.

FortiWeb offre des options de déploiement qui protègent les applications métiers, où que ces dernières soient hébergées. Parmi ces options : des appliances physiques, des machines virtuelles et des conteneurs qui se déploient au sein du data center, des environnements cloud ou de la solution cloud FortiWeb Cloud WAF as a Service.
