(I-BusinessNews.Com, March 05, 2016 ) WAF was developed in the early 1990s to respond to the threats and sophisticated attacks that traditional firewalls failed to handle. In the business environment, the usage of computers and computer networks has become necessary to send, receive, and store business information. Organizations send e-mails and information through a web server. Security has become a major concern for them because an organization's network carries sensitive, confidential, and personal information. In most cases, attackers are not interested in exploiting software, but they are determined to gain unauthorized access to network devices.
Threats directed toward end-users have been increasing in complexity with time. These threats are dangerous because hackers are attacking over trusted protocols such as HTTP, bypassing traditional firewalls. WAF has emerged as a suitable security solution and is available for different implementation requirements.
WAF is used to protect web applications against common attacks such as cross-site scripting and SQL injection. It monitors the content of each encrypted and unencrypted inbound web traffic to detect advanced attack types. WAF can integrate with other network security technologies such as vulnerability scanners, DoS protection appliances, web fraud detection, and security information and event management solutions. Technavio suggests that the integration of WAFs on application delivery controller (ADC) platforms could give the end-users greater visibility into web application traffic patterns before and during the occurrence of cyber-attacks and also help defend against threats.
Market analysts forecast the global WAF market to grow at a CAGR of 17.34% over the period 2014-2019.
