A web application firewall (WAF) monitors network traffic on web-enabled applications. It assists in blocking data packets and establishing a protected barrier between the computer and the external environment. It also helps prevent zero-day exploits, malware infections, impersonations, and unauthorized cyber vulnerabilities. It provides web security at the application layer of the open system interconnection model from several attacks, such as cross-site scripting (XSS), structured query language (SQL) injection, and request for information (RFI). Besides this, as WAF offers improved visibility of web traffic, ease of deployment, and cost-effectiveness, it finds extensive applications in various industry verticals across the globe.

Web Application Firewall Market Trends:

Rapid digitization, the growing occurrence of cyberattacks, and internet fraud on the global level are among the key factors positively influencing the market. In addition, the increasing adoption of WAF by numerous organizations to prevent malware, phishing, and security threats are creating a positive outlook for the market. Along with this, the rising employment of firewalls in the healthcare industry to prevent unauthorized access to critical healthcare networks and electronic patient records through Wi-Fi-enabled equipment is driving the market. Additionally, cloud-based WAF solutions offer numerous services to organizations, including bot detection and enforcement, access control, caching, threat intelligence, application program interface (API), and malware detection. Moreover, improvements in the information technology (IT) infrastructure and increasing investments by leading market players in research and development (R&D) activities are propelling the market growth.
