As DevSecOps teams strive to deliver new application features faster, they also face many challenges. Too often, the challenges are around security. With increasing vulnerability backlogs and new CVE’s being discovered at a faster rate each year (~24% increase YoY in 2022), many teams struggle to balance feature time to market with security risk.

What is the difference between a WAF and a WAAP?

On our Edgio Edge Security Platform, the distinction between a traditional Web Application Firewall (WAF) and our Dual Web Application and API Protection (WAAP) is significant. While a WAF primarily guards against common web application attacks like SQL injections and cross-site scripting, our Dual WAAP goes a step further.

It not only encompasses all the protective features of a WAF but also extends robust security to APIs, which are integral to modern web and mobile applications. This advanced solution is tailored for the complex digital landscape, offering enhanced, adaptable defense against a wider array of cyber threats, including API-specific attacks. By choosing our Dual WAAP, you’re opting for a more comprehensive, future-proof security layer for your web applications and robust API Security at the edge, all seamlessly integrated into our Edge Security Platform.

To address this challenge, Edgio developed its unique Dual Web Application and API Protection (WAAP) capability, which allows teams to test security rules, in production, without the risk of impacting legitimate request traffic. This ability to test rules in a risk-free manner gives teams peace of mind, knowing they are deploying rules faster and more accurately than ever before.

How Edgio’s Dual WAAP Works

To address this challenge, Edgio developed its unique Dual Web Application and API Protection (WAAP) capability, which allows teams to test security rules, in production, without the risk of impacting legitimate request traffic. This ability to test rules in a risk-free manner gives teams peace of mind, knowing they are deploying rules faster and more accurately than ever before.

After deploying a rule in Dual WAAP mode, DevSecOps teams can analyze the impact it would have against production traffic, without actually impacting that traffic. Teams can easily visualize the potential impact of a rule in Edgio’s Security Dashboard, or in their existing SIEM solutions. Once they are satisfied that a rule is working as intended, they can easily promote it to production (in under 60 seconds), shutting the door on any malicious attackers seeking to exploit the underlying vulnerability.

However, performance cannot be overlooked when it comes to web security. To address this ever-present concern, Edgio built its WAAP decision engine to meet the highest performance standards expected by our customers. We did this via our homegrown waflz engine, specifically designed to scale in a high-performance multi-tenant environment, with highly tuned rules combined in an efficient order of operations, reducing decision processing time down to milliseconds. Additionally, Edgio’s entire security stack, including WAAP, is deployed across every one of our 300+ global edge locations, so no extra request routing needs to occur when evaluating request legitimacy.

The Benefits of a Dual WAAP

The greatest benefit of Dual WAAP is faster threat containment with lower effort. With critical zero-day vulnerabilities affecting web applications components (both proprietary and open-source) discovered more frequently, companies rely heavily on their WAAP solutions for their virtual patching capabilities. Virtual patching gives development teams time to fix underlying vulnerabilities (update code, update libraries, etc.) on a more controlled timeline – as opposed to all-hands on deck fire drills – lessoning the impact on feature release schedules and product roadmaps.

With Dual WAAP, AppSec teams gain the information they need to make decisions, sooner and with greater accuracy. In turn, they can shorten their entire OODA feedback loop.
