R&S®Web Application Firewall – two editions to meet different needs

Since the release of 6.5.2, R&S®Web Application Firewall is available in two different versions or 'Editions': Business and Enterprise to address different use cases with the right capabilities.

Business Edition is the entry-level solution, run on less powerful appliances/virtual machines with limited core security functionalities (Generic patterns-ICX, Heuristics via Scoring List and API Security based on JSON / XML).

Enterprise Edition is essentially ‘Business Edition’ with extra features that advanced and enterprise users are likely to want to take advantage of: complementary security engines, available with Advanced SecurityExtended API Security to protect API-based custom applications & Machine-to-Machine communications. Comprehensive Analytics & Reporting as well as Web Access Manager optional modules are only available with Enterprise Edition.

IP Reputation is an optional service available with both Editions.

It is not possible to deploy different editions in the same environment.

Dedicated management

On cluster configurations with more than two boxes, it is required to configure a Management console based on a high performances specific configuration. Such configuration are provided with licenses flagged as "Dedicated management console".

If your cluster has more than two boxes, you must have at least one box with this flag, if not reverse proxy and tunnel apply will be blocked.

This option specifies the number of managed boxes your management box can control.

If your cluster has more than two boxes, you must have at least one box allowing to control that number of manager, if not reverse proxy and tunnel apply will be blocked.
