The Asia Pacific Web Application Firewall Market would witness market growth of 19.1% CAGR during the forecast period (2017 - 2023). A Web application firewall (WAF) monitors, filters and blocks data packets while data travels to and fro within a Web application. A WAF could be network-based, host-based or cloud-based. It is generally deployed through a proxy and placed in between a client and web application.
Running as a network appliance, server plug-in or cloud service, the WAF keeps a check on each of the packets and incorporates rule base to analyze Layer 7 web application logic and filter out traffic that is potentially harmful. These applications are used in protecting Web applications against zero-day exploits, impersonation and known vulnerabilities and attackers. With the process of customized inspections, a WAF is capable of preventing cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks, SQL injection attacks, session hijacking and buffer overflows.
The traditional network firewalls and other intrusion detection systems do not have the capabilities to handle the aforementioned challenges; therefore, the WAF is included into the infrastructure for better security of applications. WAFs are widely popular among companies that offer products or services over the Internet. Based on Deployment Types, the market report segments the market into On Demand and On Premise. Based on End Users, the Asia Pacific Web Application Firewall market segments the market into E-commerce, BFSI, Government, and Others.
Based on Countries, the Asia Pacific Web Application Firewall market segments the market into China, Japan, India, South Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, and Rest of Asia Pacific.
