Web Application Firewall

Protect websites, apps, and APIs

Defend your public infrastructure from evolving threats

Security is critical for any business to ensure uninterrupted service and possible steps to mitigate risk of data loss. Web Application Firewall is a web application firewall (WAF) that protects web applications and sites from both known and unknown attacks, including application-layer and zero-day threats. Despite an ever-evolving threat landscape, We deploy Citrix Web App Firewall for comprehensive protection without degrading throughput or application response times. Available as a cloud solution or integrated within the Application Delivery Controller platform, simplified configuration controls further mitigate risk. The pooled licensing options allow you to grow incrementally and scale on demand. Again, the business agility factor is maintained for flexibility.

Protect against DDoS, SQL injection, XSS, and SSL attacks

Mitigate threats by blocking known and emerging threats in one platform

Every type of business, no matter the size or industry, requires protection to address these threats. Attacks against web applications and infrastructure have become more common and destructive than ever. Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks prevent legitimate users and traffic from getting the resources they need. SQL injection attacks pass through firewalls to ex-filtrate data and infect corporate networks. Cross Site Scripting (XSS) attacks use unvalidated scripts for malicious activities. Legacy SSL protocols are more vulnerable than ever, and reveal application data to hackers. 

SQL injection is commonly used to steal identity data and other sensitive information. By inserting unauthorized database commands into a vulnerable website, an attacker may gain unrestricted access to the entire contents of a back-end database. Working with Web Application Firewall, Application Delivery Controller protects against compute-intensive SSL-based DoS attacks, providing broad coverage without the need to implement another set of dedicated devices. SSL-based attacks, in the absence of dedicated hardware for SSL termination and inspection, carry a heavy processing penalty. 

XSS attacks are commonly used to steal user identities, hijack user sessions, poison cookies, redirect users to malicious websites, access restricted sites, and even launch false advertisements.

PCI Compliance

IT needs a powerful yet affordable solution to ensure compliance.With payment card fraud at an all-time high, secure payment card standard have never been more crucial. Yet, since the adoption of version 3.0 of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), organizations have been struggling to meet its hundreds of requirements. Even full compliance with these standards may not protect networks from advanced cyber threats.

Integrated with the application delivery controller platform, Citrix Web App Firewall enables enterprises to achieve and exceed compliance with PCI DSS. For example, PCI requirements outline installing and configuring a firewall to protect cardholder data. Citrix ADC addresses this by restricting all access to only approved protocols, authenticated users and other heightened security levels. Other requirements targeted include protecting stored cardholder data, encryption, regular anti-virus updates, and granular access controls.

It provides protection against all known attacks and zero-day application-layer attacks. It also defends against DDoS attacks, SQL injection, buffer overflow, XSS, and uses signatures that update regularly to defend against emerging threats. Citrix ADC also features infrastructure-layer security capabilities. As risks emerge, Citrix Web App Firewall and Citrix ADC are updated in real time and ready to tackle new threats or PCI DSS updates to maintain your compliance.

By centralizing reporting and orchestration into the Citrix Application Delivery Management platform, Citrix Web App Firewall and Citrix ADC make it easy to manage, analyze bidirectional traffic, generate comprehensive compliance reports, and simplify admin tasks through a single console. Our tightly integrated platform is designed to address numerous individual PCI security requirements, reducing the cost of compliance and IT support.

Secure Web Gateway

Protect your users from web threats

Enforce company security and compliance policies, and get insights into user behavior

Over half of all internet traffic today is encrypted, which creates a rather large gap, exposing you to increased vulnerability and risk. While encryption protects the privacy and integrity of data, it also creates blind spots that attackers can exploit to evade security controls. With SSL decryption, Citrix Secure Web Gateway helps you cost-effectively eliminate blind spots in your environment and strengthen your security posture.

We provide security against threats using Citrix Secure Web Gateway is an effective, easy-to-use, high-performing web security solution with user behavior analytics. It’s equipped with powerful, dedicated SSL processors that can scale to handle up to 80,000+ 2048-bit SSL handshakes per second.

Features and Benefits

Enforce company security policies on all outgoing web traffic, while blocking access to inappropriate sites on a per user/group basis.

Educational organizations can maintain compliance by allowing students to watch only appropriate video content say for example on YouTube. IT admins are alerted when a student tries to access inappropriate videos.
