is it practical to secure application like Office 365 through WAF ?

Ah, I did not understand this from your initial question.

So you have a web application that is interacting with O365, but the web application is internet facing? In that case should could limit access to only known O365 public IP addresses. Check out this git repo: https://github.com/brett-at-f5/f5-office365-ip-url-automation

Probably you can create an iRule to block access if the traffic is not coming from O365 source IP addresses.

Or you can secure your web app with AdvWAF.

Or a combination of both.

Hi BLUE,

 

my short answer is NO. And the explanation is: Microsoft is taking care of that already (I never thought I'd ever say this... 😁 ). Any kind of SaaS application should be protected by the vendor and not by the customer. It's running in their datacenters, they must protect it.
