Web Application Protector is designed to easily safeguard web assets from web application and DDoS attacks, while improving performance.
Most organizations know they need application security, but many organizations don’t have the time, money, or experience to maintain the highly sophisticated and customized rules that traditional application security tools provide. Web Application Protector (WAP) solves that problem, providing an intuitive administrator interface, pre-configured rule groupings, automatic rule updates, and self-serve installation.
Akamai’s Web Application Protector is a self-managing WAF that is easy to setup and maintain, even without IT expertise.
The finished product is simple enough to bring application security to organizations who may otherwise leave their applications exposed. Even better, the organizations that use WAP receive added benefits from the Akamai Intelligent Platform™; including the ability to grow without adding hardware, site delivery and performance capabilities, rate controls, and protection from unwanted traffic through the reverse web proxy.
