Context-Aware Protection for Applications and APIs

IT architectures are going through a shift to multi-cloud and micro-services mandating a change on how we approach the security of our applications and APIs. Network ingress is the critical point to provide a secure application delivery infrastructure. VMware NSX Advanced Load Balancer (Avi) is positioned to provide a complete context-aware ingress security solution to work in multi-cloud and micro-services architectures.

Simplified Security for Applications

Multi-cloud and microservices architectures complicate application security. Simplifying administration with central policies and operational consistency across all clouds and containers is essential.

Context-Aware Web Application Security

Protect against the latest threats such as log4j, OWASP Top 10 and ensure compliance to standards such as PCI-DSS and GDPR. It’s critical to have live threat intelligence feed into a context-aware WAF.

Features and Benefits

API Protection

Protect Web APIs against threats at the ingress to the application infrastructure.

Context-Aware Web Application Firewall

Use a robust context-aware application firewall to protect applications while ensuring compliance to security standards like OWASP Top 10, PCI-DSS, and GDPR.

Bot Management

Use multiple factors to determine if the traffic is a bot or a human lowering false positive rates. Based on business policies, determine if the bot is good or bad, and permitted or blocked.

SSL Offload

Gain visibility into encrypted traffic and enhance application performance with decryption and re-encryption services.

DDoS Mitigation

The load balancer is the last line of defense for most applications. To protect application traffic, it must be able to detect and mitigate a wide range of Layer 4-7 network attacks.
