Synopsis :

The remote web server is protected by a web application firewall.

Description :

Nessus is able to determine that the remote web server is protected by a
web application firewall.

Such protection may disrupt scan results. Countermeasures have been
taken to make the scan as reliable as possible.

Solution :

To get a more comprehensive set of scan results, either whitelist the
Nessus server's IP address or scan from an unprotected location.
