Radware recognised in KuppingerCole’s 2022 Leadership Compass report

The cybersecurity and application delivery solutions provider Radware has been named a Product, Innovation, Market and Overall Leader in the 2022 KuppingerCole Leadership Compass report for Web Application Firewalls (WAF).

The 2022 KuppingerCole Leadership Compass report for WAFs examines the WAF market segment, vendor service functionality, relative market share, and innovative approaches to providing WAF solutions.

KuppingerCole's report analyst Richard Hill says Radware can be considered highly innovative, a leader in each category of this Leadership Compass, and should be considered in an organization's WAF evaluation.

The report, which includes an assessment of 11 security vendors, also awarded Radware's WAF solution positive and strong positive ratings across security, functionality, deployment, interoperability, and usability.

"All Radware's solutions come with advanced management and automation as well as a reporting and an actionable analytics engine. It provides a combination of negative and positive security models, behavioral analysis, and intent-based analysis to give zero-day protection to applications," says Hill.

"Of Radware's suite of services, it shows particular strength in providing a wide range of capabilities to protect against layer 3, 4, and 7 DoS/DDoS attacks, as well as providing low latency, high DDoS bandwidth, and a good forwarding rate."

Hill says Radware's strong bot management capabilities include innovative features, such as using a proprietary semi-supervised ML algorithm that helps identify the intent behind each request.

"Also, Radware has recently introduced an interesting and innovative bot crypto challenge-based mitigation scheme," he says.

The solution aims to help disrupt attack automation and further exhaust bad actors' resources and motivation to attack.

Radware says the algorithms were inspired by blockchain methodologies and work to help close security gaps that let sophisticated bots evade traditional CAPTCHA solutions. These bots can often cause serious harm to a website or application. At the same time, the new technology enables genuine website visitors to enjoy a frictionless, CAPTCHA-free user experience.

Radware chief marketing officer Sharon Trachtman says the company's high rankings in the KuppingerCole report underscores its application security leadership and continued commitment to innovation.

"It is another confirmation that Radware is delivering frictionless, state-of- the-art application protection against advanced and emerging cyberthreats," she says.

Recently, Radware was also named a technology leader in Quadrant Knowledge Solutions' 2021 Spark Matrix analysis of the global WAF market. Radware's WAF solution protects users from web application and OWASP top-10 attacks, access violations, attacks disguised behind CDNs, API manipulations, advanced HTTP attacks, brute force attacks, and other threats.

Radware says it secures the digital experience by providing infrastructure, application, and corporate IT protection, and availability services to enterprises globally. The company says its solutions empower enterprise and carrier customers worldwide to adapt to market challenges quickly, maintain business continuity, and achieve maximum productivity while keeping costs down.
