Azure Application Gateway is a web traffic load balancer that enables you to manage traffic to your web applications, offering various Layer 7 load-balancing capabilities. Azure Web Application Firewall (WAF) on Azure Application Gateway provides centralized protection of your web applications from common exploits and vulnerabilities, like SQL injections, Cross-Site Scripting, malware uploads, and DDoS attacks. The Azure Application Gateway - {AzureApplicationGateway} is configured without Azure Web Application Firewall, which leaves the Azure Application Gateway`s backend instances not secured.
