The AWS Web Application Firewall (WAF) is a (relatively) recent addition to AWS’s already mature lineup of scalable, fault-tolerant, managed services. The WAF provides AWS customers with a flexible and cost-effective platform that protects web applications from malicious users, content abusers, and DDoS attackers.

The AWS WAF was announced at the AWS re:Invent conference in 2015, and started with a baseline set of features and functionality. Driven largely by customer requests, AWS has since added many new features and updates to the WAF, including rate-based-rules, more rule condition types, Application Load Balancer support, preconfigured protections, and support in additional AWS regions.
