Abstract:
    A web application firewall (WAF) is an application firewall for HTTP applications. It applies a set of rules to an HTTP conversation. While proxies generally protect clients, WAF protects servers.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    As attacks against web servers are one of the the most prevalent issue in cyber security. Protecting web servers is critical; not only does a company stand to lose data, the server can also be used as a bridge into the company‚Äôs network and HTTPS is not enough anymore.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Anyone owning a website, an online business or a web application can get benefit from our WAF. and we know the number of people using web applications is increasing everyday.
How will the solution works
    Our WAF protects web properties from OWASP top 10 vulnerabilities because attempts to exploit them often have common detectable patterns in the HTTP requests.. User(any website/web application) will subscribe to our services and then with the help of reverse proxy server , their incoming traffic will get directed to our server(cloud deployed) first so that our WAF detects anything out of the ordinary in their incoming HTTP traffic and takes action accordingly.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Our competitors are other companies offering WAF, but our solution is different as we will be offering an option of custom rules in which the user can request any rule /service to be deployed according to their own needs other than the OWASP vulnerabilities.
