Market share leader for three consecutive years, WAPPLES is the Web Application Firewall (WAF) of choice for customers in the Asia Pacific.
Besides blocking basic web attacks, WAPPLES is deployed to effectively guard against sensitive data leakage, block malicious web access and prevent website defacement in this era of intensified attacks.Powered by an intelligent detection engine, WAPPLES is capable of combating the newest threats, including attacks often utilized in Advanced Persistent Threats (APT) launched by malicious agents to obtain data assets of governments and enterprises or for terrorism or political gains.

Intelligence Allows Top Performance
While traditional WAFs depend on high-maintenance signature updates for low-accuracy pattern-matching, WAPPLES uses a logic-based detection engine called COCEP™ (Contents Classification and Evaluation Processing).
Utilizing 28 pre-configured detection rules, modified and even unknown attacks are categorized and blocked heuristically and semantically. This proprietary technology allows WAPPLES to deliver superior security with industry-leading accuracy and low false positive rates under various network environments. Maintaining high stability and performance, WAPPLES’ ease of deployment and low operational workload was recognized by Gartner as what made the WAF a popular choice for surveyed clients.
Through the analysis of an attack’s characteristics, WAPPLES is able to identify attacks that utilize new patterns of exploit that often bypass typical WAFs utilizing signature-based detection engines.
1st and 2nd generation WAFs that operate on blacklists and whitelists lag behind due to their reliance on signature updates to detect the latest threats. In comparison, the sophistication of security that WAPPLES can provide greatly surpasses that of signature-based WAFs.
