Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity further advances cloud integration for R&S®Web Application Firewall

The latest version 6.5.3 of the R&S Web Application Firewall featuring Cloud Integration on Amazon Web Services (AWS) enables organizations to successfully fulfill their digital transformation.

Munich, July 11, 2019 – Digital transformation is imperative for all businesses, from small to medium sized enterprise (SME) to a multinational corporation (MNC). As organizations embrace the digital transformation, they need their architecture to scale seamlessly and without heavy investment in order to cater for rapidly evolving business processes.

The latest version of the R&S Web Application Firewall offers low touch deployment and management of the Web Application Firewall in the cloud. Fast deployment on Amazon Web Services (AWS) is enabled via Terraform template whereby new instances of the R&S Web Application Firewall are automatically created as and when needed. The new R&S Web Application Firewall version offers the customer configuration orchestration using an API, to further simplify administration and management. A hybrid deployment with a mix of Amazon Web Services and on-premises solutions is also possible.

Virtually unlimited scalability to adequately handle web traffic

The R&S Web Application Firewall scales up to handle peaks of traffic, and scales back down when traffic returns to its usual state. The user can thus benefit from virtually unlimited scalability. The autoscaler is also able to handle traffic with mixed instances "Bring Your Own Licenses" (BYOL) and "Pay-as-you-go" (PAYG). BYOL instances are available permanently, while PAYG instances are created by Amazon Web Services autoscaler to handle traffic peaks.

The combination of license types from R&S Web Application Firewall allows customers to leverage the best security and application availability at a lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). To avoid exceeding the defined budget by auto-scaling cloud Web Application Firewall instances, customers are able to limit the maximum spend by defining a threshold. Version 6.5.3 of R&S Web Application Firewall offers the best of both worlds: ensuring that security does not affect application performance during critical peak usage while controlling costs.

Version 6.5.3 of R&S Web Application Firewall will become generally available on July 18, 2019.

To accompany customers who adopt multi-cloud strategy, further advances of cloud integration on Microsoft Azure and Google cloud platform are planned for consequent releases.
