YOTTAA Product Updates: July 2021
YOTTAA released a major update to RAPID CTRL documentation, updating it to align with recent improvements to our user interface. In addition to updating all documents, we have added a cheat sheet on optimizing third parties that slip past the typical performance rule configuration. We’ve also added additional context-sensitive ‘Help’ links. Look for the orange question mark icons at the top of each page or slider for a link directly to the ‘Help’ topic that covers that page. Finally, we updated the Getting Started with Rapid CTRL guide, allowing new users to more easily onboard.
WAF (Web Application Firewall) Mirroring
In an effort to supply continuous high-quality protection for our customers’ sites, YOTTAA is implementing WAF-mirroring.
YOTTAA’s WAF Mirroring (shown in the diagram below) allows each site to keep their WAF protection using existing proven rules, while testing new rules to verify their accuracy. The active front-end WAF blocks suspicious requests using the proven rules, while the mirror WAF examines the same traffic using the new rules. The Mirror WAF generates a report of suspicious requests without blocking traffic. Traffic evaluation from both the front-end and mirror WAFs (Web Application Firewalls) is fed to YOTTAA Analytics where it is compared and behavioral differences are noted.
