Powerfully Simple Web Application Firewall & DDoS Protection
Most enterprises want both protection and performance, but they lack their own cybersecurity resources. Web Application Protector does not require hardware, it is easy to turn on, and it can work without customization. In short, it’s perfect for enterprises.
The fact is, if you’re not in the cybersecurity business and lack visibility into new attacks and vulnerabilities, it’s better to play to your strengths, and seek out a vendor to manage your WAF. More importantly, don’t forgo web application security just because you don’t know how to implement it.
Because Akamai is used by 6,000 of the largest online companies, we have visibility into huge quantities of legitimate and malicious traffic across the world and within industries. We stop attack traffic in the cloud, often one hop away from the attacker, and long before it reaches your datacenter or cloud infrastructure.
Akamai’s Web Application Protector is a self-managing WAF that is easy to setup and maintain, even without IT expertise
