cybersecurity skills crunch

F5 Networks said it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders quadrant of its Magic Quadrant for Web Application Firewalls (WAFs), published August 7, 2017.

“Application Security Manager—our WAF—has always been one of F5’s most popular products. Scores of customers have relied on it to protect apps from threats and defend against vulnerabilities,” said Ben Gibson, EVP and Chief Marketing Officer at F5.

“Recently we’ve expanded to meet our customers’ needs in the cloud by offering that same trusted security in new ways—as a managed service via Silverline WAF; as an agile, easy-to-deploy self-service portal via Silverline WAF Express; and most recently as a click-to-deploy service in public cloud marketplaces like Microsoft Azure. We believe our placement in the Magic Quadrant reflects the trust customers place in F5 WAF solutions as they protect their applications on-premises and, increasingly, in the cloud.”

In describing the market, Gartner characterizes WAF as “driven by a customer’s need to protect public and internal web applications when they are deployed locally (on-premises) or remotely (hosted, cloud-based or as a service). WAFs protect web applications and APIs against a variety of attacks, notably including injection attacks and application-layer denial of service (DoS). They should not only provide signature-based protection but should also support positive security models and/or anomaly detection.”
