Why AWS WAF?
If your web apps or APIs are at risk of being hacked or compromised by bots, AWS WAF (Web Application Firewall) is a virtual firewall that can assist defend you from these threats. AWS WAF gives you comprehensive control over traffic accessing your applications by allowing you to set security rules that restrict bot traffic and stop classic attack types like SQL injection and cross-site scripting. Additionally, you have the option of creating rules that only allow certain types of traffic. Preconfigured rules for AWS WAF, administered by AWS or AWS cloud computing marketplace sellers, can be used to deal with security problems such as the OWASP Top 10 security risks and automated bots that utilize excessive resources, skew metrics, or cause downtime in AWS cloud systems. These recommendations are frequently revised to reflect any changes in the situation. Additionally, AWS WAF has a security rule system that allows you to automate the generation, deployment, and maintenance of safety rules. Your CDN solution, the Application Load Balancer for your web servers or origin servers on EC2, Amazon API Gateway for your REST APIs, and AWS AppSync for your GraphQL applications may all use AWS WAF on Amazon CloudFront. Amazon Web Services offers a CDN solution called Amazon CloudFront. Your application’s daily web request volume and the number of rules installed define how much AWS WAF costs, so there are no hidden fees.

PricingThis includes the amount of web access control lists (web Basic input / output system), the number of rules you apply to each one, as well as the volume of web requests. It’s not necessary to make any commitments right now. AWS WAF is not included in the prices of Amazon CloudFront, Application Load Balancer (ALB), Amazon API Gateway, and AWS AppSync. If you create several web ACLs or rules for multiple web ACLs, you will be paid separately. Depending on how many web requests the web ACL handles, more fees will be incurred. The pricing structure for AWS services is the same across all regions. Each hour of use is charged at a prorated monthly rate. Subscribing to a controlled rule group offered by an AWS Marketplace vendor will come at an additional cost. AWS WAF fees aren’t the only costs to consider.
