Presented by

About this talk

Gartner estimates that by 2026, 40% of organizations will select their WAAP provider based on DDoS protection, bot mitigation, advanced API protections, as well as web application security features — up from less than 10% in 2021. Organizations, however, continue to struggle with tuning their rule sets, false positives that negatively affect business transactions, and the rapid pace of change in the actual web applications they aim to protect. Add to the mix the ongoing risk large scale Internet-wide problems presented by zero-day exploits such as Log4j and the continuous news stories that data breaches occurred from long-standing well-known security risks that just weren’t protected against because of the rapid pace of change in the modern application environment defenders are attempting to protect. In this webinar, you will learn about: - Crucial mistakes that security teams are prone to today - Insights into application development constraints - Akamai’s WAF technology and how we use it Join Akamai Director of Security Strategy Tony Lauro as he dives into the history of web application security and why WAFs matter for maintaining a strong defensive security posture.
