General availability: Web Application Firewall (WAF) bot protection on Application Gateway

Published date: July 30, 2021

We are announcing the general availability of the Web Application Firewall (WAF) bot protection feature on Application Gateway. This feature allows users to enable a managed bot protection rule set for their WAF to block or log requests from known malicious IP addresses. The IP addresses are sourced from the Microsoft Threat Intelligence feed. This rule set can be used alongside the OWASP core rule sets (CRS) to provide additional protection. 

See our bot protection overview documentation to learn more.
