Does Heroku offer a Web Application Firewall (WAF)?

Issue

Can I use Heroku to block/manage certain kinds of traffic in my app?

Resolution

Whilst Heroku protects against certain kinds of attacks at the platform level, it doesn't offer any user configurable firewall for individual apps. We recommend configuring this protection in your application server if needed. There are several solutions available for the various languages we support e.g. the rack-attack gem for Ruby

For more sustained, high-volume or sophisticated attacks we recommend using a dedicated service such as Fastly or CloudFlare. These have more sophisticated features for controlling traffic to your app.
