Cloudflare Web Application Firewall

by cybersal

The Cloudflare Web Application Firewall (WAF) blocks more than 57 billion cyber threats per day. That is 650k blocked HTTP requests per second. The original code that filters this traffic was written by Cloudflare’s now CTO and the WAF has since received many accolades including the highest score for ability to execute in the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for WAF.

Cloudflare  are now excited to announce a new Web Application Firewall.

What’s changing

The Web Application Firewall (WAF) is a core component of the Cloudflare platform. As one of the most used products in the portfolio, we have gained a lot of feedback and experience from running it at scale, that helped guide us in this major iteration. The new WAF brings:

  • Better rule browsing and configuration
  • A new matching engine
  • Updated Rulesets
