Presented by

Jake Dolezal, Analyst at GigaOm

About this talk

Performance is a key criterion when choosing a web application firewall (WAF). Join GigaOm analyst, Jake Dolezal, as he presents the results of performance testing on four WAFs: NGINX App Protect WAF, ModSecurity, AWS WAF, and Azure Web Application Firewall (the last two as fully managed cloud offerings). The results of GigaOm’s testing, also available in the High-Performance Application Security Testing report, show that NGINX App Protect performed better than all three other WAFs. Jake details the complete methodology used in the testing, so you can adapt it to test your own workloads and requirements.
