Research and Markets: Global Web Application Firewall Market 2012-2016: Top 7 Companies Reviewed, Including SWOT Analysis

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/fq9fv9/global_web) has announced the addition of the "Global Web Application Firewall Market 2012-2016" report to their offering.

The analysts forecast the Global Web Application Firewall market to grow at a CAGR of 18.34 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the need to meet PCI DSS regulatory standards. The Global Web Application Firewall market has also been witnessing the integration of security functionalities. However, the increase in false-positive risks could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

The key vendors dominating this market space are Cisco Systems Inc., Citrix Systems Inc, F5 Networks Inc., Fortinet Inc., Imperva Inc., Juniper Networks Inc., and Palo Alto Networks Inc.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: Currently, hackers are increasingly focusing on attacking application layers rather than network layers. DoS is one of the most common and age-old techniques that helps carry out confidential data theft. Hackers use DoS to flood a web server's computing and network resources with data, thereby increasing the traffic. This automatically generates several requests for access. As a result, the server ends up blocking access for legitimate users. However, hackers these days are opting for DDoS techniques, which are improved versions of DoS. While using the DDoS technique, the hacker initiates a coordinated attack from multiple systems, which is more powerful than DoS.
