WAFs and anti-SDL assumptions
When someone advocates Web Application Firewalls (WAF), some people mistakenly assume they also must be anti-Security Development Lifecycle (SDL). For myself and WhiteHat Security, nothing could be further from the truth. While WhiteHat advocates the use of WAFs, at the same time what most people do no realize is we also develop a significant amount of mission critical Web code in-house. Our SDL is incredibly important to us because just like many of you we also have a development team responsible for building website(s). Websites responsible for safeguarding and maintaining access control over extremely sensitive data, our customers data. That website would be WhiteHat Sentinel.
