Web applications provide one of the largest windows of exploitability for modern organizations. Left unchecked and insecure, sensitive data is placed at a tremendous risk. This is where web application firewalls (WAFs) have historically come into play. That said, the current generation of WAF technologies are failing to provide the level of security that organizations expect and should demand. In fact, nearly 80% of respondents in a recent Ponemon Institute survey indicated that their web apps were compromised, despite having a WAF in place. 

This paper, a collaboration between Threat X and Frost & Sullivan, explores this paradox in greater detail and provides insight into: 

  • The reasons for increases in web application attacks and what your organization can do to combat them
  • The evolution of WAF technology and the impact on modern security teams
  • How and why security technology and human talent should coexist
