Instart Logic named a visionary in Gartner Magic Quadrant for web application firewalls

Positioned Furthest to the Right for Completeness of Vision

Palo Alto, CA — August 15, 2017 — Instart Logic, the company revolutionizing cloud application performance, experience, and security, today announced that it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. furthest to the right in the Visionaries quadrant of its Magic Quadrant for Web Application Firewalls (WAFs), published August 7, 2017.

“Instart Logic’s mission is to help leading global brands deliver a faster, safer, and more profitable digital experience. We are thrilled and honored to be positioned furthest to the right in the Visionaries quadrant of Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Web Application Firewalls, in our very first time participating in this MQ. We feel this prestigious recognition is testament to the hard work of our engineering team, and to the great success of our customers. Instart Logic’s cloud-based Web Application Firewall is part of our carrier-grade security platform which uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to protect cloud, web and mobile applications from the constant and growing threat of ever more sophisticated cyber-attacks,” said Daniel Druker, chief marketing officer at Instart Logic.

In the Visionaries quadrant of the Gartner MQ for Web Application Firewalls, Instart Logic is positioned furthest to the right for Completeness of Vision.

In describing the market, Gartner characterizes WAFs as “driven by a customer’s need to protect public and internal web applications when they are deployed locally (on-premises) or remotely (hosted, cloud-based, or as a service). WAFs protect web applications and APIs against a variety of attacks, notably including injection attacks and application-layer denial of service (DoS). They should not only provide signature-based protection, but should also support positive security models and/or anomaly detection.” ¹
