Cybersecurity and application delivery solutions provider Radware has been named a Product, Innovation, Market and Overall Leader in the KuppingerCole Leadership Compass 2022 report for Web Application Firewalls (WAFs).
The KuppingerCole Leadership Compass 2022 for WAF report examines the WAF market segment, vendor services features, relative market share and innovative approaches to deliver WAF solutions.
KuppingerCole report analyst Richard Hill says Radware can be considered highly innovative, a leader in each category of this Leadership Compass, and should be considered in an organization’s WAF assessment.
The report, which includes an assessment of 11 security vendors, also gave Radware’s WAF solution strong positive and positive ratings for security, functionality, deployment, interoperability and usability.
“All of Radware’s solutions come with advanced management and automation along with an actionable reporting and analytics engine. It provides a combination of negative and positive security models, behavioral analytics, and analytics based on intent to offer zero-day protection to applications,” says Hill.
“Among Radware’s suite of services, it shows particular strength in providing a wide range of capabilities to protect against Layer 3, 4, and 7 DoS/DDoS attacks, as well as providing low latency, bandwidth high DDoS and a good transfer rate.”
According to Hill, Radware’s powerful bot management capabilities include innovative features, such as the use of a proprietary semi-supervised ML algorithm that helps identify the intent behind each request.
“Additionally, Radware recently introduced an interesting and innovative mitigation scheme based on the bot crypto challenge,” he says.
The solution aims to help disrupt attack automation and further drain the resources and motivation of malicious actors to attack.
Radware says the algorithms were inspired by blockchain methodologies and help close security gaps that allow sophisticated bots to evade traditional CAPTCHA solutions. These bots can often cause serious damage to a website or application. At the same time, the new technology enables genuine website visitors to enjoy a frictionless, CAPTCHA-free user experience.
According to Sharon Trachtman, Chief Marketing Officer of Radware, the company’s high ranking in the KuppingerCole report underscores its leadership in application security and its continued commitment to innovation.
“This is further confirmation that Radware provides cutting-edge, frictionless application protection against advanced and emerging cyber threats,” she said.
Recently, Radware was also named a technology leader in Quadrant Knowledge Solutions’ 2021 Spark Matrix analysis of the global WAF market. Radware’s WAF solution protects users against web applications and OWASP top 10 attacks, access violations, attacks disguised behind CDNs, API manipulations, advanced HTTP attacks, brute force attacks and other threats.
Radware says it secures the digital experience by providing enterprise IT infrastructure, applications and protection, and availability services to businesses around the world. The company says its solutions enable businesses and operators around the world to quickly adapt to market challenges, maintain business continuity and achieve maximum productivity while reducing costs.
