WAF Market Vendors

As mentioned before,  Penta Security was reported as having the highest market share percentage in APAC. This places them ahead of China-based information security vendor NSFOCUS and more well-known vendors such as Imperva and F5 Networks. The report highlighted a few of the key factors that contributed to the dominance of WAPPLES in the APAC WAF market. WAPPLES runs on the superior performance of Penta Security’s proprietary logic analysis based engine, which attributes to its position as the long-running market share leader in Korea.

Penta Security also maintains strong relationships with its partners. It reaches out through regular seminars, technical support, and continued efforts to satisfy the needs of its customers. The benefiting results provide a deep insight into market demands.
