Is the Palo Alto Prisma Cloud WAAS a host based WAF or a Runtime Application Self Protection (RASP) solution?

Hello,

 

 

I was curious if is the Palo Alto Prisma Cloud WAAS just a host based WAF or a Runtime Application Self Protection (RASP) solution? My idea is that RASP is getting popular as way to block 0 day server web attacks even without signatures using behavour patterns but I do not know if the Palo Alto WAAS is a WAF, RASP or the two at the same time.

 

 

If it is just a WAF maybe if it can be integrated with Cortex XDR then it can monitor also behaviour if such intergation is possible?

After talking with some people that work with XDR, there is a new XDR agent for clouds that is installed separately than the Prisma Cloud Defender and WaaS on the hosts (virtual machines, containers, kubernetes). The WaaS is a full featured WAF and the XDR agent is adding extra protections but not a RASP but I still can't decide if RASP is better than a WAF, so this is under review if RASP is needed.
