Title: Akamai Kona Site Defender vs CloudFlare WAF Web Application Firewall Security Efficacy

Publication date:   01 July 2016
Document number:    216116

Abstract:

Because of the critical role played by web applications in so many organizations, securing business websites is often the most important task assigned to the security team. Akamai’s Kona Site Defender provides integrated website protection against DDos and web application attacks as well as from a wide range of online threats, including network- and application-layer DDoS, SQL injection and XSS attacks.

Akamai commissioned Tolly to evaluate the security efficacy of the Akamai Web application firewall (WAF) solution and compare that to the CloudFlare WAF solution. Both solutions are delivered via a content delivery network (CDN). Tests showed that Akamai Kona Site Defender detected and blocked more threats in more categories than the CloudFlare WAF solution.
