Why Use Web Application Firewalls?
In a nutshell:
1. Web applications are deployed terribly
insecure.
2. Developers should, of course, continue to
strive to build better/more secure software.
3. But in the meantime, sysadmins must do
something about it. (Or, as I like to say:We
need all the help we can get.)

4. Insecure applications aside, WAFs are an
important building block in every HTTP
network.
