Using WAF for the First Time

When using WAF for the first time, we recommend that you run WAF in Simulate mode for at least one week.

Simulate mode captures and logs information about your site traffic. By reviewing generated logs, you can make data-backed decisions around your firewall needs, and better determine how to configure action and sensitivity settings for your storefront.

When reviewing your logs, consider the following:

If running WAF in Simulate mode results in identifying many bad actors, you can raise your WAF sensitivity level. Alternatively, if you find that WAF is triggering on real shopper activities, you can lower the sensitivity.
