Web Application Firewalls (WAF) have grown to become business-critical to protect web applications. In a new Leadership Compass report, KuppingerCole, an independent analyst firm headquartered in Europe, analyses WAF products to help you find the solution that best meets your needs.

Today’s WAF solutions must provide more advanced capabilities to meet new and emerging IT requirements and protect against the evolving landscape of attacks. Beyond core capabilities, WAFs are now filling the gap with Web Application and API Protection (WAAP) capabilities.

In this interactive session, experts from KuppingerCole and F5 will examine the WAF market and elaborate on:

  • The difference between WAF and WAAP and the specific capabilities needed in each
  • Securing applications with WAF, API security, bot defence, and DDoS mitigation use cases
  • Advanced capabilities for WAFs to protect against complex web attacks
  • Deployment options such as on-premises, cloud, multi-cloud, and hybrid
  • Protecting container-based platforms (e.g. Kubernetes) or microservices
