The importance of applications—and a WAF to protect them—to business today
You can’t run a business today without applications—whether that means serving customers who want to order online, enabling employees who need to work remotely, or allowing partners to interact with your logistics, financial, or workforce records. Time to market, revenue, and even an organization’s competitive advantage all hinge on the ability for people to quickly and easily interact with applications that do what they need to do without fail.
The flip side? Applications are a primary target for attackers. Providing visibility and consistency is challenging for security teams. It also increases the risk of negative business outcomes—from downtime and lost revenue to data breaches to loss of customer trust. For these reasons, threats to applications have become the single biggest risk to business success. Fortunately, there are things you can do about it.
