Defending web applications has never been more important. Not only have ever more commercial interactions been driven online by the COVID-19 pandemic, but enterprises are increasingly adopting cloud computing, whether it be the software-as-a-service (SaaS) variant that serves all sizes of companies or the infrastructure- or platform-as-a-service (IaaS and PaaS) flavors that larger enterprises embrace as they gain more confidence in the cloud.
All the applications sitting in these cloud environments are, of course, accessed remotely using either private WAN links or, increasingly, the public internet. As the web option for access grows, access becomes more convenient, but the apps themselves become more exposed to cyberattacks.
Web application security has multiple dimensions, both in the development pipeline and at runtime. This Omdia report provides a comprehensive view of web application security vendors’ capabilities; download the report to see Imperva’s evaluation.
