2012-12-11 21:50:17 - Global Web Application Firewall Market 2009-2013 - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
Web Application Firewall (WAF) protects the critical business applications working at layer seven of the open system interconnection (OSI) reference model. Some Web applications (like bank transactions, social networking services etc.) cannot be protected by the traditional firewalls (as it only protects the lower layers). This is where the WAF technology comes into play, as it is capable of safeguarding the integrity of Web applications.
The growing usage of Web applications has led to an increase of threats. Custom Web applications represent a weak link that is generally considered to be the most vulnerable. These customized applications have limited security, as it depends on an organization´s ability to code these applications securely.
WAF solutions are mainly used to analyze application traffic,
block attacks, and protect such applications. Further, some vendors are offering WAF as part of the application management platform. In fact, there is a possibility of convergence of both areas into what would be called a secure application delivery platform in the future. If implemented, a single device will be used as a traffic optimizing solution as well as filtering equipment.
The report by TechNavio Insights forecasts the size of the Web Application Firewall market over the period 2009-2013. Further, it discusses the key market trends, drivers and challenges, and profiles some of the key vendors of this market.
