Web Application and API Protection (WAAP): Market Landscape and Product Deep Dive

WAAPs are disrupting WAF and API security markets.

WAAP is rapidly gaining market share as companies move from individual product solutions that address distributed denial of service (DDoS) prevention, bot protection, and web application firewalls (WAF) to an integrated tech stack with purpose-built capabilities to combat web-targeted attacks, including malicious bots, denial of service attacks, application compromises, and API assaults. The WAAP solution market is undergoing rapid change that may affect current and future WAAP vendors.
