Oracle Web Application Firewall (WAF)

Protect applications from malicious and unwanted internet traffic with a cloud-based, PCI-compliant, global web application firewall service. By combining threat intelligence with consistent rule enforcement on Oracle Flexible Load Balancer, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Web Application Firewall strengthens defenses and protects internet-facing application servers and internal applications.

WAF features

Integrated threat intelligence

Adopt a layered defense (edge and in-region) security strategy with a web application firewall that aggregates threat intelligence from multiple sources including WebRoot BrightCloud® and more than 250 predefined OWASP, application, and compliance-specific rules.


Extensive policy controls

Protect applications deployed in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, on-premises, and in multicloud environments with access controls based on geolocation data, whitelisted and blacklisted IP addresses, HTTP URL, and HTTP header.


Active bot management

Identify and block malicious bot traffic with an advanced set of verification methods, including JavaScript, CAPTCHA, device fingerprinting, and human interaction algorithms.


Flexible enforcement

Obtain the flexibility to enforce WAF protection at the OCI edge closest to end users, as well as on internal and external load balancers closest to OCI applications. Protects the application infrastructure and workloads no matter where they reside: in OCI, on-premises, multicloud, and anywhere in between.
