AWS WAF is a web application firewall that helps secure your web applications and APIs by blocking requests before they reach your servers. You can use AWS WAF to protect your CloudFront distributions and origin servers. AWS WAF helps you protect against common web exploits and bots that can affect availability, compromise security, or consume excessive resources.
