Is Azure firewall a WAF?

Last updated on September 25, 2022 @ 12:18 pm

PRO TIP: Azure firewall is not a web application firewall (WAF). It does not provide protection against common web application vulnerabilities, such as SQL injection or cross-site scripting.

Azure firewalls are not WAFs. Azure firewalls are purpose-built for security, with features such as deep packet inspection and intrusion detection, whereas WAFs are typically used for malware prevention and website filtering.
