Frequently Asked Questions

  • A web application firewall (WAF) monitors and filters HTTPS traffic to your website, and prevents against harmful traffic that could potentially compromise your website. Attacks that a WAF helps prevent are DDoS, SQL injection, malware, and more. WAFs are often used in conjunction with other security tools. For example, HubSpot leverages a WAF as part of its broader CMS platform and hosting solution at no cost to users.

  • While a WAF monitors the traffic coming to your website from known servers and prevents against specific attacks like cross site scripting (XSS) and SQL injection, a firewall monitors and regulates the connections between known and unknown servers. HubSpot’s global content delivery network helps you ensure that the traffic reaching your website is coming from known, trusted servers.

  • A WAF is a critical piece of protecting your website from harmful attacks on the internet. By using a WAF, you can reduce the likelihood that your website will be unavailable to your customers for extended periods of time, increasing the opportunity for your customers to do business with you.
