Global Web Application Firewalls Market: Overview

Web application firewall is basically a software and hardware solution, which is developed for controlling and monitoring the network traffic especially on web-enabled applications. Such firewall acts as a protective barrier between the external environment and the systems. Moreover, this firewall provides a web protection mainly at the application layer to the open system interconnection model.

Web application firewalls help in preventing many types of attacks such as SQL injection, XSS, DT, and cross-site scripting. This firewall also helps in identifying and blocking several exploit attempts which is known as web application vulnerabilities through shortening the exposure window. In this process all the malwares and patches are thoroughly tested and then deployed. Such advantages are fueling growth in the global web application firewalls market.

Many large and small scale enterprises are extensively adopting web application firewalls system for acquiring better protection to their sensitive data. Some of the crucial factors providing impetus to the growth of the global web application firewalls market include rapid technological innovation in various product offerings, growing application areas among several industry verticals, and increasing adoption for cloud-based solutions.

Along with this, high expenditure in research and development activities for developing solutions with high capabilities are also augmenting demand in the global web application firewalls market. Above all, the major factors influencing the growth of the global web application firewalls market are rising number of cyber-attack activities and dearth of trained professionals. All such factors have its significant impact on the global web application firewalls market. 

Web application firewalls can be either network-based or host-based and is typically deployed through a proxy and placed in front of one or more web applications. In real time or near-real time, web application firewall monitors traffic before it reaches the web application, analyzing all requests using a rule base to filter out potentially harmful traffic or traffic patterns. Web application firewalls are a common security control used by enterprises to protect web applications against zero-day exploits, impersonation and known vulnerabilities and attackers.

Cloud implementation of web application firewalls are useful when the services a business wishes to protect are not hosted in a facility it controls. These are also great for a minimal touch implementation, because they basically only require a domain name system (DNS) change to start working. The traditional implementation of web application firewalls is still a good option, and that is by deploying an appliance on an organization's network, usually between its web application and the users accessing it. There is another kind of deployment, an integrated web application firewall that would live either within the application itself or on the IT infrastructure along with the application.
