Pedigree through investment
Effitas has a pedigree and technical competence in WAF testing that stems from our heavy investment into what we see as a significant growth market.
WAFs (Web Application Firewalls) protect web applications against malicious actors by filtering, monitoring and blocking HTTP traffic to and from a web application.
Vulnerabilities in web applications like SQL injection, XML External Entities or command injections can lead to serious breach of the confidentiality, integrity or availability of the web application and the data handled by the application.
Web Application Firewalls can act like band aids until the vulnerabilities in the web application are identified and fixed.
We provide independent testing of WAFs by testing the resilience of these products against attackers with basic, medium and advanced skillsets
