Ponemon Institute Research: The State of Web Application Firewalls
The Ponemon Institute recently surveyed 595 organizations and discovered that 65% experienced successful application-layer attacks that bypassed their existing web access firewall (WAF).
This new research, sponsored by Cequence Security, reveals a concerning trend – WAFs are failing to provide effective protection against application-layer attacks.
This new report sheds light on:
- Why the majority of IT security pros are dissatisfied with their WAF
- The security and resource costs of a traditional WAF
- What features leading IT security pros desire in a WAF
- Best-practice guidance on addressing application security with WAFs
