Heterogeneity of Web Application Firewalls Market Increases

For companies doing business with commercial partners and customers via web applications, it is business-critical to maintain and protect these web applications. Since companies have become increasingly dependent on web applications for doing business, the need for Web Application Firewalls (WAF) has increased as well.

When looking for a strong Web Application Firewall solution, it is essential for companies and IT decision makers to understand system requirements in order to buy the right solution that aligns with their business model. With the Market Compass Web Application Firewalls, KuppingerCole provides an overview of the Web Application Firewall (WAF) solutions that span the spectrum of on-premises, cloud, and hybrid IT delivery models. Both managed and unmanaged options are also considered.

“The WAF market today has become heterogeneous in regard to the deployment models. WAF solutions in today’s market are designed to offer comprehensive WAF capabilities regardless of the location of the IT environment,” says Richard Hill, Senior Analyst for KuppingerCole Analysts AG. “For the report we have been looking at solutions that provide the capability to protect web-based applications as well as its data, which are commonly found in small to large organizations,” he explains.

These solutions not only must meet the most basic WAF requirements seen in the past but also provide more advanced capabilities to meet the new emerging IT requirements that protect against the evolving landscape of attacks seen today on the internet.
