About Edgio’s Award-Winning Web Application and API Protection (WAAP)
If you haven’t heard about Edgio, our unified Web Application and API protection (WAAP) provides defense in depth against complex, evolving threats to websites and apps. Edgio is one of the very few vendors with full WAAP coverage deployed at the edge, mitigating attacks closest to where they originate – boosting security without sacrificing performance. Backed by a global network of over 300+ points of presence with 250 tbps of capacity, Edgio has the scale to keep our customers’ applications resilient against massive DDoS attacks. In fact, Edgio recently absorbed an attack measuring ~355 million packets per second (Mpps) without our customer having to lift a finger.
Innovation is at Our Core
One of Edgio’s most unique features is our Dual WAAP, which allows DevSecOps teams to test rule updates on production traffic in audit mode without the risk of affecting normal site traffic. With simple integration into existing CI/CD pipelines, Dual WAAP shortens testing cycles and allows teams to quickly shut the door on attackers when critical threats or zero days are discovered. Edgio is able to offer this feature to customers without increasing latency by leveraging our proprietary decision engine called Waflz which was purpose-built for high performance.
Advanced Bot Manager
Earlier this year, we strengthened our WAAP offering with the release of our Advanced Bot Manager solution. Using patent-pending ML techniques on top of signals constantly gathered from our network, Edgio Advanced Bot Manager accurately detects and mitigates bad bots in real-time. With malicious bots accounting for more than 25% of all internet traffic*, and one in four organizations sustaining losses in excess of $500K in a single bot attack**, it’s never been more important to select a partner that can provide robust protection against a wide range of automated threats.
