WAF and load balancer

WAF and load balancerΒΆ

Web Application Firewall (WAF) is used to filter malformed HTTP requests. For example, XSS attacks, SQL injection, and malicious file inclusion.

A load balancer is not a security solution, but it may help to preserve the availability of services mitigating an impact of DoS attacks.

You can find solutions that combine both WAF and load balancing functionality.
