KEMP’s Application Firewall Pack (AFP)* combines Layer 7 Web Application Firewall protection with other application delivery services, including intelligent load balancing, intrusion detection, intrusion prevention, as well as edge security and authentication. By integrating the world’s most deployed Web application firewall engine, ModSecurity, augmented by threat intelligence and research from information security provider, Trustwave, AFP provides:

  • Data loss prevention (DLP)
  • Mitigation of the OWASP Top Ten common vulnerabilities
  • Real-time threat protection for packaged and custom applications
  • Support for organizational PCI-DSS compliance requirements

With a targeted focus on application-specific exploits missed by traditional firewalling techniques, AFP plays a key part in a defense-in-depth strategy that mitigates risk and optimizes applications.

Key Benefits

Comprehensive Security Services

LoadMaster provides integrated security capabilities including Web Application Firewall protection (WAF), edge security, L7 IPS/IDS, DDos Mitigation, application publishing, and authentication services as standard features on all platforms, including select hardware appliances.

PCS-DSS Compliance

Protecting Web applications is of critical importance for all organizations, especially those which process payments. In order to help customers with PCI-DSS requirements, AFP reduces the need for extensive code reviews with industry proven rule sets that are regularly and automatically updated.

Ease of Deployment and Use

With KEMP’s focus on simplicity and shortening time to production for application deployment, LoadMaster with Application Firewall Pack (AFP) enables secure, scalable, and always-on workload delivery in one fully integrated, easy-to-use-and-deploy load balancing solution.

WAF is a feature on all KEMP products, with the exception of LM-2400, LM-2600, and LM-3000, which do not have WAF capabilities.
