General availability: Rate-limit rules for Application Gateway Web Application Firewall

Published date: November 08, 2023

Rate-limit custom rules on Azure’s regional Web Application Firewall (WAF) running on Application Gateway are now available.  Rate-limiting enables you to detect and block abnormally high levels of traffic destined for your application. By using rate limiting, you can mitigate many types of denial-of-service attacks, protect against clients that have accidentally been misconfigured to send large volumes of requests in a short time period, or control traffic rates to your site from specific geographies.
