WAF Tuning Package

IMPORTANT

On April 30, 2023, the Fastly WAF (WAF Legacy and WAF 2020) will reach its end of life date and will no longer be supported for existing customers. As an alternative, the Fastly Next-Gen WAF offers similar functionality as well as additional features. This product is a web application firewall that monitors for suspicious and anomalous web traffic and protects, in real-time, against attacks directed at the applications and origin servers that you specify. It can be controlled via the web interface dashboard or application programming interface (API). We encourage you to contact waftransition@fastly.com or your Fastly account team to evaluate Fastly Next-Gen WAF and begin the transition process.

Fastly’s WAF Tuning Package provides your organization with tuning of your WAF by Fastly. For more information about this package, contact support@fastly.com.

How it works

Fastly Professional Services staff will guide you through the following tuning stages:

  • Planning. Professional Services staff help you gather protection requirements, define rules or filter policies, and develop policy structure.
  • Deployment. Professional Services staff help you configure your Fastly WAF VCL and add it to your Fastly service. They provide best-practice consulting for configuration of your WAF functionality within the Fastly service and will publish the policy to your Fastly service.
  • Testing. Professional Services staff help you validate that your WAF policy is active and set up testing for it.
  • Go-Live. Professional Services staff monitor and address issues during final production testing and policy deployment.

Planning, deployment, testing, and go-live may involve some iterative cycles depending on the complexity of your policy.

Policy services

Some common tuning options we offer include:

  • Initial setup and configuration
  • Validation of policy match to origin systems
  • Policy updates and maintenance
