Quickly Named a Challenger in the Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Web Application and API Protection | national company


Fastly, Inc. (NYSE: FSLY), the world’s fastest global edge cloud platform, today announced it has been named a Challenger in the 2022 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Web Application and API Protection (WAAP ).

“We believe that being named a Challenger by Fastly, along with our recent recognition as the Customers’ Choice for Web Application and API Protection for the fourth consecutive year, validates all of our efforts to protect scale. Internet in any environment,” said Lakshmi Sharma, Chief Product and Strategy Officer, Fastly. “Fastly is able to ensure application and service security without sacrificing deployment or delivery speed, which is essential for businesses and developers to deliver fast, secure and reliable digital experiences. »

According to Gartner “Hype Cycle™ for Application Security, 2022,” “Publicly available web applications pose a high risk of breach. Since most critical business processes and sensitive data are hosted on these applications, protecting them is paramount. Verizon’s 2022 Data Breach Investigations report also revealed that web applications are the top attack vector.

Quickly empower developers and security teams with superior detection capabilities and reliable attack indicators that go beyond traditional WAFs, which are historically difficult to maintain and require endless rule tuning to eliminate the false positives that can block legitimate traffic. The Fastly Next-Gen WAF protects applications and APIs in all environments – cloud, on-premises, hybrid, and at the network edge. Because the next-generation WAF relies on a fundamentally different approach (developed by Signal Sciences) that effectively detects and blocks malicious traffic and attacks without adjusting rules, over 90% of customers have the confidence to use in full blocking mode. This helps ensure that application development and availability is not interrupted while allowing AppSec teams to focus on more important issues.

In addition to superior technical efficiency, our customers repeatedly cite our ease of integration and excellent customer support. A site reliability engineer in the media and publishing industry noted in a recent peer review that “Fastly Next-Gen WAF is easy to integrate, configure and provides excellent insights. And Slawomir Zabiewicz, who most recently served as vice president of engineering at filestack, said: “The look of the next generation of [Fastly]WAF was very compelling to me because I needed WAF management that was essentially effortless, something that can be set up very quickly but is still an important part of our security program. If I receive a notification from [Fastly] a new user is a bad actor, I can immediately block them, which is very important to me, and to our customers. I don’t think any other solution on the market can offer us all of this.
