Google Cloud Web App and API Protection (WAAP) is a cloud-native security solution designed to protect your web applications and APIs from various security threats, including SQL injection, cross-site scripting, and DDoS attacks. WAAP provides a range of features to help you safeguard your applications, such as Web Application Firewall (WAF), API Protection, Bot Management, DDoS Protection, Web Application Accelerator, and Security Command Center (SCC).
Web Application Firewall (WAF)
A WAF is a security device that filters and blocks malicious traffic to your web applications. WAAP’s WAF is powered by Google’s advanced threat intelligence and machine learning capabilities. This feature helps you detect and block common web application attacks, such as cross-site scripting (XSS) and SQL injection, before they reach your application.
API Protection helps you secure your APIs from attacks such as unauthorized access, data tampering, and denial-of-service. This feature helps you to secure your APIs by implementing security policies such as authentication and authorization for API access.
WAAP’s Bot Management helps you identify and manage bots that are accessing your applications. This feature helps you distinguish between good and bad bots and protect your applications from malicious bots while allowing legitimate ones to access your applications.
WAAP’s DDoS Protection helps you protect your web applications and APIs from distributed denial-of-service attacks. This feature provides protection against Layer 3, 4, and 7 DDoS attacks, keeping your applications available and accessible to legitimate users.
Web Application Accelerator
WAAP’s Web Application Accelerator helps you optimize the performance of your web applications by caching static content and optimizing dynamic content. This feature improves the loading speed of your web applications, resulting in a better user experience.
Security Command Center (SCC)
WAAP’s Security Command Center (SCC) provides you with real-time visibility into security threats to your web applications and APIs. SCC is a security information and event management (SIEM) and security orchestration, automation, and response (SOAR) platform that helps you monitor, analyze, and respond to security threats.
WAAP is a cloud-native security solution that is easy to deploy and manage, making it an excellent choice for organizations that want to secure their web applications and APIs from various security threats.
