I am a student and preparing a presentation on WAF,so your any help would be highly appreciated.


I actually want to know, what is the basic difference between WAF and cloud-based WAF?I don't see any difference between them(except that latter is installed on a third party server and DNS chages have to be made.).

What are the functionalities that Cloud-WAF can provide but a simple WAF can't and vice-versa?

What is the advantage of using cloud-based WAF ?


Thanks in advance
