Web Application Security

Web Application Security Challenges

Web applications have long been favorite targets of hackers because they can provide access to valuable information. They’re also relatively easy to exploit. A successful attack can have devastating consequences, including financial loss, damage to brand reputation, and loss of customer trust. Some organizations never recover from a major security breach.


Fortinet’s high-performance Web Application Security solution consists of a robust and integrated set of products that protect against these attacks. We are the only company that can detect advanced persistent threats (APTs) to web applications with Fortinet Security Fabric, which uses shared intelligence with FortiGate enterprise firewalls and FortiSandbox sandboxing solutions.

Whether it’s a previously undiscovered web application vulnerability, a vulnerability waiting to be patched, an out-of-support system, or some other issue, vulnerabilities are there, waiting to be exploited. Even if the web application is 100% vulnerability-free, if high-speed encryption isn’t used, thieves can intercept application traffic and the valuable data it contains. The Fortinet Web Application Security solution defends web-based applications and secures web application traffic using our FortiWeb Web Application Firewalls and FortiADC Application Delivery Controllers.
