The AWS Solutions team recently updated AWS WAF Security Automations, a solution that automatically deploys a set of AWS WAF (web application firewall) rules that filter common web-based attacks. Users can select from preconfigured protective features that define the rules included in an AWS WAF web access control list (web ACL). Once deployed, AWS WAF protects your Amazon CloudFront distributions or Application Load Balancers by inspecting web requests.

The updated solution now supports IP retention on Allowed and Denied IP sets. Customers can enter a retention period for these IP sets respectively to activate the feature. Once activated, the IP addresses due to expire will be removed from their IP set after reaching the defined retention period. This gives customers more flexibility to manage these IP sets.

Additional AWS Solutions Implementations offerings are available on the AWS Solutions page, where customers can browse common questions by category to find answers in the form of succinct Solution Briefs or comprehensive Solution Implementations, which are AWS-vetted, automated, turnkey reference implementations that address specific business needs.
