What is a “Web Entry Server”?

A reverse proxy with WAF filtering capacities and centrally managed authentication/authorization services for controlling the access to web applications.

Such an access infrastructure might elsewhere also be known as WAM/WAF combination (WAM: Web Access Management) or application access gateway server.

The term Web Entry Server is mainly used in the German speaking part of Europe and signifies that it is the central entrance through which all web applications must be accessed.
