Elevating Protection for Modern Apps and APIs through Comprehensive Security

NGINX App Protect is a lightweight software security solution that seamlessly integrates into DevOps environments as a robust web application firewall (WAF) and Layer 7 denial-of-service (DoS) defense. It is platform-agnostic and runs across distributed architectures and hybrid environments to deliver consistent protection.

Why Use NGINX App Protect?

Platform-Agnostic Security Deployment

Use the same WAF and DoS defense solution across distributed architectures and environments including on premises, hybrid, and multi-cloud. With NGINX App Protect you can:

  • Reduce complexity and tool sprawl using the NGINX portfolio for single-vendor app and API protection and attack mitigation
  • Deploy this uniquely flexible software form factor across all modern app topologies – from load balancers at the edge to API gateways and Kubernetes Ingress controllers to per-service or per-pod proxies inside the Kubernetes cluster
  • Build consistent security controls for web apps, microservices, containers, and APIs
  • Scale your Kubernetes apps in the cloud with a lightweight, high-performance, low-latency, and low-compute security solution
  • Integrate into CI/CD pipelines for easy security automation

Scalable, High-Performance App and API Protection

Leverage F5’s proven and trusted advanced WAF technology combined with the lightweight, high performance of NGINX for a fast, scalable, Layer 7 defense. With NGINX App Protect WAF and DoS you can:

  • Exceed basic OWASP Top 10 protection with over 7,500 advanced signatures, bot signatures, and threat campaign protection
  • Protect your organization’s HTTP/S and HTTP/2 applications, as well as protocols such as GraphQL (WAF), gRPC (WAF and DoS) and WebSocket (DoS)
  • Significantly reduce false positives by deploying in blocking mode with trusted high-confidence signatures
  • Enable cost-effective distributed DoS (DDoS) protection at scale with continuous measurement of mitigation effectiveness and adaptive learning for no-touch policy configuration
  • Easily gain centralized visibility and configuration management over your WAF fleet with built-in NGINX tools or by forwarding telemetry to third-party solutions


Enable a shift-left strategy where security is incorporated at every stage of the software development lifecycle (SDLC). With NGINX App Protect you can:

  • Reduce the cost of breaches by up to 80% via security automation
  • Implement DevSecOps with declarative security policies created by IT Security teams that enable developers to integrate security as code into CI/CD pipelines
  • Save time and money by finding and fixing vulnerabilities before an app is released into production
  • Maintain developer agility and innovation while building more reliable and secure apps
  • Accelerate time to market and reduce costs, staying ahead of the competition and keeping up with customer demand.

WAF Security

Improve security, accelerate DevOps, and simplify management of your apps and APIs for DevOps environments. With NGINX App Protect WAF you can:

  • Surpass basic OWASP Top 10 protection with over 7,500 advanced signatures, bot signatures, and threat campaign protection
  • Release apps faster with security automation that integrates seamlessly into CI/CD pipelines
  • Achieve high performance and throughput with 10x lower latency than AWS WAF for lower compute costs
  • Gain centralized visibility and easy security policy management for total control of your WAF fleet using NGINX Management Suite
  • Deploy as an embedded solution on NGINX Plus or NGINX Ingress Controller across all topologies from edge load balancer to inside a Kubernetes cluster as a per-pod proxy

DoS Mitigation

Enhance security, automate defense, and accelerate protection of your apps and APIs from Layer 7 DoS attacks. With NGINX App Protect DoS you can:

  • Mitigate attacks faster with a multi-layered defense strategy leveraging eBPF technology
  • Use machine learning to greatly reduce false positives and adaptive learning for no-touch policy configuration
  • Get superior attack detection by going beyond tracking client traffic patterns with combined service health checks
  • Deploy natively on NGINX Plus or NGINX Ingress Controller as embedded DoS protection on the load balancer, API gateway, Ingress Controller, or inside the Kubernetes cluster as per-pod or per-service proxies
  • Automate security-as-code seamlessly into CI/CD pipelines for DevSecOps
