Unleash the power of our content nature engines.
Symantec Web Application Firewall (WAF) proprietary Content Nature Detection Engines understand the context of the content, representing a fundamental shift in attack detection technology that improves the overall accuracy and reliability of attack identification. When a request comes in, it is parsed and broken down into parts, then analyzed against these engines, similarly to how a compiler parses and analyzes code. If the system believes that a request has something that can detonate on the target, it can then be either monitored or blocked according to your policy configuration.
The Content Nature Detection Engines can combat many of today’s web application attacks, including code injection, HTML injection, directory traversal, command injection, JSON validation, SQL injection and cross-site scripting. As a crucial element of our web app firewall, these engines include:
- Shells’ command grammar and interpreter
- Compiler-like SQL parsing and analysis
