F5 GLOSSARY

Application Firewall

Application firewalls secure and protect application communications, in much the same way that network firewalls secure and protect network communications. By being aware of the language that applications use to transmit information, application firewalls can deny or modify invalid or suspicious activity.

Web application firewall, such as the F5 BIG-IP® Application Security Manager, enforces security specifically for Web application traffic.
