XSS-Protection

The XSS-Protection header provides the ability to turn on a browser's XSS protection. This enables XSS protections and instructs the browser to block a response in the event a XSS reflection attack is detected.

Enterprise cloud app adoption is continuing to increase across various functions, and to stay ahead of the curve, IT leaders must understand the susceptibility of these applications to attacks that could compromise data. In the past decade, a myriad of techniques have been developed to compromise web applications -- from cross site scripting (XSS) and SQL injection to phishing and clickjacking. As web applications have become more sophisticated, so have modern web browsers, which has spawned several new HTTP response headers to help enhance a website's security.

IT Business Edge recently spoke with Ravi Balupari, director of engineering and cloud security research at Netskope, on how the advances being made in the realm of HTTP protocol can address new emerging threats across the universe of cloud applications. He discusses here five HTTP security headers that IT leaders must incorporate in their enterprise data security strategy to address any potential threats.
