SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 22, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Wallarm launches a first-in-its-class Cloud Web Application and API Protection (WAAP) with full support of API technologies including REST, SOAP, WebSocket, graphQL and gRPC.
Most CDN vendors have basic WAF capabilities and lack API protection, which makes a whole set of assets unprotected. A recent report published by Gartner found that, "by 2023, over 50% of B2B transactions will be performed through real-time APIs versus traditional approaches." APIs are the new apps and a new target for attackers.
"With Wallarm Cloud WAF, you can now gain protection across a full portfolio of your applications, APIs, and serverless workloads without any agent installation at all", adds Ivan Novikov, Co-Founder and CEO of Wallarm. Wallarm's Deep API Request enables API protection for any API that is built with REST/SOAP/graphQL/gRPC without prior configuration or uploading API specs.
Typically Wallarm customers deploy Wallarm nodes in their infrastructure with a variety of deployment options. With a new cloud offering, Wallarm Filter Nodes are now distributed across the globe to provide protection right at the edge without any required installation from the customer's side. To make it happen, Wallarm partnered up with Colorado-based Section to utilize its modular Edge Compute Platform, CDN, and global coverage.
"Section is proud to power Wallarm's Cloud WAF solution. By enabling faster deployment and extended application and API protection at the Edge, Wallarm takes AppSec to the next level, backed by the speed, scale and Edge deployment flexibility of Section." - Stewart McGrath, Co-Founder & CEO, Section.
Key capabilities of the joint solution include:
- Robust protection for the entire application portfolio. Mitigate threats against OWASP Top 10 threats, business logic abuse, bad bots, account takeover (ATO), and more.

- Quick integrations. Setup cross-team workloads via your existing DevOps and security toolchain (SOARs, SIEMs). Setup triggers and noise-free alerts in Slack and other messengers, PagerDuty, and more.
- Blocking mode and compliance with no hassle. Forget issues with false positives.Wallarm's new libDetection and core signature-less attack detection provide low false positives from day one.
