    Summary: This video is showing how the WAF Recommendation in ADM helps configuring the NetScaler WAF to protect your applications.

NetScaler Web App Firewall (WAF) Profile and WAF Signatures protect your web applications from malicious attacks. WAF signatures provide specific, configurable rules to simplify the task of protecting your websites against known attacks. To protect your application using signatures, you must review the rules, enable, and configure the ones that you want to apply.


Similarly, to prevent data breaches and provide the right security protection in the application for other known or unknown attacks, you must create a WAF profile with security checks. When you create a WAF profile with certain security checks, you may result in blocking legitimate traffic (as the security checks are too strict) or allowing malicious traffic passing through (as the security checks are not strict enough).


As an administrator, you must understand to enable the right signatures and create the right WAF profiles to protect the web application. Identifying the right signatures and the WAF profiles might be a difficult task at some scenarios. NetScaler ADM WAF recommendation scans the application for vulnerabilities and generates recommendations on WAF Profile and WAF Signature.


WAF recommendation database is updated on a frequent duration to include any new vulnerabilities. You can scan and then select to enable the required recommendations. In this video, a brief demo on how to use the WAF Recommendation Scanner, in ADM, to scan the web apps for any vulnerabilities and provide the correspoding reccommendations in WAF Signature and Security Checks.
