2016 ZenEdge WAF-Off

HackMiami P0wn-Offs are notorious for putting vendor products to the ultimate test by subjecting their defenses to a room full of security engineers with weaponized laptops.

This year we will host the ZenEdge WAF-Off, whereby ZenEdge will put their Web Application Firewall commercial security solution to the test by undergoing a barrage of attacks from conference attendees engaged in competitive battle.

This will be the first public battle between an AI/ML (artificial intelligence / machine learning) Web Application Firewall and hackers, continuing the ongoing tradition of man versus machine competition.

The hacker that successully bypassesses the ZenEdge Web Application Firewall will walk away with a cash prize.
