The Global Web Application Firewall Market is valued at USD 3.82 Billion in the year 2021 and is forecasted to reach a value of USD 9.57 Billion by the year 2028. The Global Market is anticipated to grow exhibiting a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 16.5% over the forecast period.
The Web Application Firewall (WAF) is intended to improve the security of HTTP or online interactions. To identify and block threats to a system, it generally follows a set of rules. It's also used to manage and track network traffic for web-based applications. This firewall creates a relatively secure barrier between the system and the outside world. It protects the open system interconnection model's application layer from a variety of attack types, including XSS, SQL injection, cross-site scripting, DT, and RFI. Increased demand for cloud-based solutions, as well as strict industry norms and regulations, are major growth factors for the market. Cloud-based WAF solutions are offered as software packages that include a full stack of threat prevention technologies that offer the greatest protection against vulnerabilities including malware, phishing, ransomware, and emerging cyber threats. Even when users are not connected to their Virtual Private Network, cloud-based WAF solutions protect and secure the network (VPN). Bot detection and enforcement, access control, caching, threat intelligence, API security, malware detection, and Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) mitigation are among the services they provide.
Certain industry and government laws, either expressly or implicitly, demand the deployment of a WAF (Web Application Firewall) solution. The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS), for example, is a well-known and significant regulation that encourages WAF use. WAF capability can be implemented in software or hardware and can run on an appliance device or a standard server with a common operating system. Machine learning and artificial intelligence are two popular WAF technologies that play important roles in the WAF arena. Hardware WAF appliances, virtual appliance-based systems, and cloud-based applications can all be used to deploy WAF solutions and services across an organization's cyber infrastructure. System integration and training, as well as support and maintenance, are among the primary suppliers' supporting services for a smooth transition and implementation of WAF solutions.
