Can we use Prisma cloud WAAS to protect AWS ALB

L1 Bithead

Hi All,


Can we use Prisma cloud WAAS to protect AWS ALB? As I've checked it can protect host or container ..but need to know if it act as WAF same like AWS which check ALB traffic and we can apply rule on ALB.

Hi Skchakraborty,

Yes, the Prisma Cloud Compute WAAS feature does provide many of the features that a typical network WAF does. You wouldn't use it to monitor or protect an AWS ALB but the applications running in the container. The difference is that the WAAS module does not provide any load balancing features. We provide a significant set of WAAS/WAF related application security.
