Moreover, the prevalence of cyber-attack is also on the rise. In 2022 compared to 2021, approximately 37% of cyberattacks increased across the globe. Hence, in order to prevent this the demand for web application firewalls is increasing. Additionally, it defends against attacks including cross-site scripting (XSS), file inclusion, SQL injection, and cross-site forgery that target online applications. Additionally, a WAF reduces the administrative work needed to guarantee adequate ongoing web application security testing. Application security teams could maintain tabs on what is appropriate to let through a WAF by actively setting guidelines and requirements. In order to react to possible security events much more quickly, teams are able to get prompt information of an assault that is already underway.
