Web application vulnerabilities remain a top point of entry that attackers use to compromise an organization’s IT infrastructure and the sensitive data it contains. The list of breaches directly attributed to these vulnerabilities grows every year, including the high-profile 2017 Equifax attack. Gartner highly recommends a Web Application Firewall (WAF) to protect organizations from threats that target known and unknown exploits.

In this session, we’ll first dive into the basics of Fortinet’s Fabric-integrated FortiWeb web application firewall and FortiADC application delivery controller to see how they’re used to defend against application layer attacks and deliver content securely. We’ll then move on to reveal and demo FortiWeb’s next generation, a sophisticated new feature that provides zero-day attack protection out-of-the-box, that virtually eliminates false positive detections.
