Dublin, June 08, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Web Application Firewall Global Market Report 2023" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The global web application firewall market is expected to grow from $4.25 billion in 2022 to $5.07 billion in 2023 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 19.3%. The web application firewall market is expected to reach $9.81 billion in 2027 at a CAGR of 17.9%.

The increase in the number of cyber-attack and data breach activities is expected to propel the web application firewall market going forward. A cyberattack and data breach is a malicious and intentional attempt by an individual or a group to breach the information system of another person or organization. It is used to gain unauthorized access, corrupt, disrupt, disable, and control someone's computer.

A web application firewall prevents and protects the web application from cyber attacks and keeps the data safe. For instance, according to the cybersecurity threatscape report by Positive Technologies, a Russia-based cybersecurity company, the number of cyberattacks increased by 17% in Q1 of 2021 as compared to Q1 2020, and it increased by 1.2% as compared to Q4 2020.

Furthermore, according to the 2022 cost of a data breach report published by IBM (International Business Machines Corporation) , the average cost of a data breach increased 2.6%, from USD 4.24 million in 2021 to USD 4.35 million in 2022. Therefore, the increase in the number of cyber-attacks and data breaches is significantly contributing to the growth of the web application firewall market.

Technological advancement is a key trend in the web application firewall market. Major players in operating web application firewalls are adopting cloud-based website firewalls and advanced WAF technology that employs behavioral analytics, proactive bot defense, and application-layer data encryption.

For instance, in May 2022, StackPath, a US-based edge computing platform provider, launched StackPath Web Application Firewall (SP//WAF) by subscription. It offers monthly WAF usage and increased access to new and extra features like specialized sanction screens and sophisticated rules extensions, professional services, and technical support. The powerful threat-detection capabilities that set SP/WAF are available to businesses of all sizes in a package that cost-effectively satisfies their specific security, use, and operations-management requirements.
