"Secure application deployments with Kemp's web application firewall (WAF)"

What is WAF with Progress Kemp LoadMaster?

LoadMaster supplies a WAF based on the industry-leading ModSecurity engine, backed by open-source rule sets. This web application firewall deploys on the award-winning LoadMaster load balancer. It is a fully supported component of the Progress software stack and backed by our industry-leading consulting team, security experts, and support staff who take all issues from initial contact to resolution without passing support tickets up a helpdesk hierarchy.

The WAF takes advantage of all the benefits of the available and flexible Progress licensing models. Deploying via LoadMaster instances with a metered license allows WAF placement that fully meets an organization’s unique application delivery and security needs.
