The New CloudGuard WAF-as-a-Service offers a fully managed, scalable solution empowering businesses to navigate the digital world with confidence and resilience.

Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. has unveiled CloudGuard WAF-as-a-Service (WAFaaS) — an automated, AI-powered, web application firewall, that offers organizations a fully managed solution to prevent cyber threats and protect web applications from unauthorized access and data breaches. Prioritizing prevention, simplicity and scalability, this technology delivers a convenient and cost-effective way to efficiently secure cloud applications and APIs.

Security practitioners understand that WAF solutions require meticulous setup and ongoing maintenance to mitigate risks. Yet, securing the cloud is of the utmost importance. Check Point’s 2024 Cloud Security Report revealed an overwhelming 96% of respondents reported concerns about their ability to effectively manage cloud risks. Check Point CloudGuard WAFaaS’s fully managed offering alleviates the heavy lifting traditionally associated with maintaining WAF solutions, transforming a cumbersome process into a streamlined operation.

“Modern cloud operations need straightforward and effective protection for Web Services and APIs, which CloudGuard WAFaaS provides through essential, automated, and cloud-delivered security. CloudGuard WAFaaS simplifies application security for our customers, providing top-notch threat prevention within a managed solution that can be deployed in under five minutes and effectively prevents zero-day threats,” said Oded Gonda, VP Technology & Innovation at Check Point Software Technologies. 

“Unlike traditional web application firewalls, which rely heavily on manual intervention and frequent signature updates, our newly released Check Point CloudGuard WAFaaS leverages AI to adapt to new threats dynamically. It is available immediately through our network of global partners,” said Brian McHenry, Head of Cloud Security Engineering at Check Point Software. CloudGuard WAFaaS is an essential component of Check Point’s prevention-first cloud security solution. With features ranging from AI-based threat detection, API discovery bot prevention, file security, and rate limiting, CloudGuard WAFaaS offers a comprehensive suite of application and API protection for multiple cloud and modern architectures and includes DDoS prevention and automated certificate management.
