This prestigious international awards program, conducted by CyberSecurity Breakthrough, acknowledges outstanding information security products and companies in the global market.

Edgio WAAP offers comprehensive protection against DDoS attacks, malicious bots, and other automated threats, while effectively mitigating application and network layer attacks.

It enables users to embed security directly into application development, making it user-friendly and never a blocker to innovation. The solution is 100% API-driven, facilitating easy integration with existing CI/CD pipelines, SIEMs, SOARs, and Terraform.

“We built our solution for DevSecOps, providing security that is never a blocker to innovation. The uniquely user-friendly interface allows for simplification of complex data, giving clear insight into the risks that our customers’ web applications and APIs would otherwise carry. Thank you to CyberSecurity Breakthrough for this validation of what we have built,” said Ajay Kapur, CTO and GM of Applications for Edgio.

Edgio WAAP also offers customizable security policies and comprehensive reporting, enabling users to quickly recognize threat trends. While the solution is designed for self-service, managed security services are available for day-to-day operations, and Edgio’s 24×7 SOC provides support before, during, and after an attack.
