About the Report
Performance is a key criterion when choosing a web application firewall (WAF). In this report from GigaOm, Jake Dolezal and William McKnight present the results of performance testing on three WAFs: NGINX App Protect, ModSecurity on NGINX, and AWS WAF, a fully managed security offering.
GigaOm’s testing, also covered in our High-Performance Application Security Testing webinar, shows that NGINX App Protect performed better than both ModSecurity and the AWS WAF. The report details the complete methodology used in the testing, so you can adapt it to test your own workloads and requirements.
