    Appliance Deployment Overview

    The WebApp Secure appliance (The appliance is the software/hardware system. It is synonymous with WebApp Secure in most contexts.) processes all inbound web requests and outbound web responses. Outbound responses are modified in ways that are invisible to the average user; inbound requests are checked to see if the modified responses have been altered in any way. Any alterations are suspicious and indicate a possible hacker. Due to its focus on web applications, WebApp Secure only accepts HTTP/HTTPS traffic and is normally placed between a load balancer and your web applications. Topologically, you should think of WebApp Secure as a web reverse proxy server.
