How To Secure Edge Computing with an Enterprise WAF

Internet connectivity has never been faster or more far-reaching—but despite these facts, the physical infrastructure of the internet is still a crucial consideration in terms of availability, reliability, and performance.

For this reason, businesses concerned about the speed of their web services should consider distributed compute architectures, such as content delivery networks (CDNs) and edge computing platforms.

While distributed systems offer substantial advantages, they’re not without their risks—especially when it comes to security. Using a distributed system increases your attack surface and exposes you to new IT security issues and vulnerabilities. Any responsible organization must take measures to mitigate these issues with solutions such as a web application firewall (WAF).

In this white paper, we’ll discuss some of the security risks that affect distributed systems. Then, we’ll offer a look at how you can resolve them with an enterprise-grade WAF that offers a rich array of features while keeping your business safe.
