Prospects for a Crucial but Undervalued Security Technology

The Web Application Firewall (WAF) is an essential security tool for protecting Web applications and Web sites that are of ever-growing importance in today’s economy. The WAF market is primarily driven by regulatory requirements for WAF deployment and other mandatory steps to protect Web applications and end user data. However, the WAF market holds potential for significant growth as new threats and highly publicized data breaches drive interest in WAF and other Web application security practices. WAF vendors that understand and address the challenges facing this market can make significant progress in market penetration.

Executive Summary
-A Web application firewall (WAF) is an important and greatly undervalued security technology.
-Recent high profile data breaches have piqued demand for this functionality.
-Yet, the market for WAF solutions has underperformed in recent years and the growth potential of the WAF market has been tempered by a number of implementation challenges over the years.
-Vendors that have addressed these challenges are well positioned to support customer Web application security requirements.
-However, for vendors to be successful, they must also navigate an emerging set of challenges presented by changing threats and new technologies.
-A full discussion and analysis of these market trends is available in the drivers and restraints section.
