    How NGINX App Protect WAF outperforms other WAFs

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 four WAFs: NGINX App Protect WAF, ModSecurity, AWS WAF, and Azure Web Application Firewall (the last two as fully managed cloud offerings).

GigaOm’s testing, also covered in our High-Performance Application Security Testing webinar, shows that NGINX App Protect performed better than all three other WAFs. The report details the complete methodology used in the testing, so you can adapt it to test your own workloads and requirements.
