Web Application Firewall for Azure Front Door is in preview

Posted on Wednesday, April 17, 2019

Use Web Application Firewall (in preview)to define security policies that allow, block, or rate limit access to your web applications delivered through Front Door. A Web Application Firewall security policy may consist of custom rules based on client IP addresses, geolocation, and http parameters, a managed ruleset against common exploits such as SQL injection and cross site scripting (XSS), and a managed ruleset for bot detection and mitigation. New or updated Web Application Firewall configurations are deployed globally within minutes, letting you respond quickly to changing attack patterns. In addition to Azure portal, you may use APIs, PowerShell, or CLI to create, update, and deploy these security rules and integrate with other automation tasks such as dynamic policy updates based on threat intelligence feeds.
