A site (also known as a workspace) is a single web application, bundle of web applications, API, or microservice that the Next-Gen WAF can protect from attacks. Sites contain various configurations that determine how monitoring agents process incoming requests. These configurations enable request logging and blocking and define what type of requests should be allowed, logged, or blocked.
Every site belongs to a corp (also known as a corporation). A corp is a company hub for managing all sites, users, and corp-level configurations. Users are authenticated against a corp and can be members of different sites in that corp.
When defining the scope of your site, consider how you want to compartmentalize data, rules, and user access. For example, you may want to create sites based on an environment type (e.g., development, staging, and production) or region (e.g., APAC, EU, and US). Read our Managing sites guide for more information.
You can monitor your site's traffic and performance via the web interface. For example:
- the Site Overview page contains high-level site metrics organized into multiple dashboards.
- the Requests page lists a sample of individual requests that have been tagged with signals.
- the Observed Source page tracks IP addresses that have been or will be flagged soon, and the Events page contains a historical record of all flagged IP addresses within the last 30 days.
- the agent details page provides a summary of the status and performance of the agent.
