Gartner® Magic Quadrant for Web Application and API Protection (WAAP) in 2021

Fastly is named a Challenger, building off of Signal Sciences’ two consecutive years as a Visionary.

Fastly’s web application and API protection (WAAP) platform defends applications through real-time attack detection and visibility across any environment.

Fastly is honored to be positioned in the Challenger quadrant in recognition of our expanded ability to execute and completeness of vision for advanced web protection. We believe this milestone is a testament to our extreme focus on solving security challenges for customers.
