Cyber security and application delivery solutions provider Radware has announced it has been named a Leader and an Outperformer in the Innovation hemisphere of GigaOm's Application and API Protection Radar report.

GigaOm awarded Radware the highest possible scores in Key Criteria categories, such as rules bundles, AI enhancement, API discovery, data leak protection and bot management. The company also earned the highest possible marks in the Evaluation Metrics categories for flexibility, scalability, and breadth of coverage.

“To be positioned as a leader is a testament to the strength of our technology," says Sharon Trachtman, chief marketing officer at Radware.

"It's also a reflection of our ability to innovate in key areas, such as automated API discovery, bot management, and behavioural-based machine learning algorithms,” she says.

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, behavioural-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 centralised security management regardless of where applications are deployed.

Last month, Radware introduced a new API-based security architecture solution to help reduce latency and improve security.

Announced as part of the company's recent strategic cloud services initiative, the new technology comes with a range of new features and services to help create better security outcomes.

Radware SecurePath acts to assist the company's Application Protection-as-a-Service solutions to provide better security outcomes for applications deployed in the changing cloud environment.

The solution will provide full application visibility and centralised security management regardless of where applications are deployed, making it easier for organisations to manage their security infrastructure.
