Akamai Named Leader for 2nd Year in a Row, in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Web Application Firewalls

In this report, Gartner evaluates the improved security of web application firewalls and the leading providers in the space.

Gartner estimates that “by 2023, more than 30% of public-facing web applications will be protected by cloud web application and API protection (WAAP) services that combine distributed denial of service (DDoS) protection, bot mitigation, API protection, and WAFs. This is an increase from fewer than 10% today.”

In this report, Gartner presents information to assist organizations in evaluating how web application firewalls can provide improved security that is easy to consume and manage, while respecting data privacy requirements. 

You’ll also read evaluations of 14 WAF vendors and see why Gartner named Akamai a leader for the second year in a row. 


Akamai has deployed the most pervasive, highly distributed cloud optimization platform, delivering over 2 trillion Internet interactions daily and creating a powerful layer of defense to withstand today's attacks.
