Web servers are vulnerable to thousands of attacks every day due to the increasing number of web applications, plugins, and software that run through the servers. Web applications are the biggest threats to server security, as two-thirds of attacks are due to web applications. Web Application Firewall (WAF) is vital for servers and businesses to deal with complex attacks and hackers exploiting vulnerabilities. Basic firewalls cannot secure and lock the server entirely from web applications to monitor, filter, and block unwanted incoming and outgoing traffic on the web server. Thus, features such as Content Management System (CMS), the latest platforms, and server management tools are crucial to run businesses smoothly.

Let's see the different ways to protect the server using BitNinja WAF 2.0:
- Enable BitNinja for nodes
- Activate BitNinja while creating nodes: E2E cloud provides BitNinja protection during node creation through users' E2E accounts. Users can find sub-menu 'Nodes' and 'Manage Nodes' under the 'Products' menu. One can 'Add New Node' and then 'Create Compute Node.' After creating a node, one can enable BitNinja security tools and protect the node from numerous cyber-attacks.
- Activate BitNinja for running nodes: If one skips enabling the BitNinja Security tool while creating an E2E node, it can be activated on a running node. A sub-menu 'Manage Nodes' under the sub-menu 'Nodes' of the 'Products' menu, a particular node can be selected to enable BitNinja.
- Enable BitNinja for load balancer
- Activate BitNinja during load balancer creation: After creating an account on the E2E cloud, go to the 'Manage Load Balancer' sub-menu under the 'Products' menu. Click on 'Add New Load Balancer' that goes to the 'Create Load Balancer' page. After creating the Load balancer by choosing the image and the plan, it directs the user to the final stage of creating the load balancer, enabling the BitNinja security tool. A BitNinja activation notification can be received via email.
- Activate BitNinja for running load balancer: When Load Balancer is launched on the E2E cloud without enabling BitNinja WAF 2.0, one can activate BitNinja security on the running load balancer. Go to 'My Account', click on the 'Products' menu. Select 'Manage Load Balancer' and then select the load balancer to which BitNinja should be enabled.
