“To be positioned as a leader is a testament to the strength of our technology. It’s also a reflection of our ability to innovate in key areas, such as automated API discovery, bot management, and behavioral-based machine learning algorithms,” said Sharon Trachtman, Radware’s chief marketing officer.

The GigaOm Radar report offers a forward-looking analysis that plots the relative value and progress of vendor solutions along multiple axes based on strategy and execution. The report evaluated ten solution providers, including Radware, based on a range of criteria, including market segment, protection coverage, differentiating and critical factors, and product evaluation metrics.

In GigaOm’s Application and API Protection Radar report, Don MacVittie, GigaOm research analyst, writes about Radware’s solution:

  • OWASP Top 10 threat protection: “This solution’s protection versus common standards, such as the OWASP Top Ten, OWASP API Top Ten, and OWASP Automated Threats to Web Applications, surpasses any other vendor in this review.”
  • BOT management: Radware provides “bot management in a multi-layered system that protects systems from several directions.” Radware uses manually-defined rules as well as self-learning, behavioral-based machine-learning algorithms, augmented by threat intelligence feeds. The report concludes that “Radware is ahead of the general market in this space.”
  • API discovery: “Radware creates OpenAPI definitions for discovered (“shadow”) APIs. This allows for support of all APIs, imported and discovered. It is not strictly alone in taking this step, but this feature is the definition of ‘best of breed’ for API discovery at this time.”

Recently, Radware introduced its new Radware SecurePath™ cloud-based application security architecture as part of its Application Protection-as-a-Service solution. Uniquely built to be deployed inline or as an API-based, out-of-path service, Radware SecurePath addresses the need for security that delivers full application visibility and centralized security management regardless of where applications are deployed.
