Protect apps and APIs deployed across clouds and edge sites wit industry-leading, SaaS-based web application firewall (WAF) and bot protection, advanced API security, and L3-L7 DDoS defense.
Why Distributed Cloud WAAP Matters
Protect against emerging threats
As apps evolve and API deployments increase, attack surface areas are increasing and bring greater risk.
Dramatically simpler operations
Reduce the number of point solutions and centralize security policy enforcement across distributed environments.
Best-in-class bot detection and WAF
Market-leading bot detection technology for highly accurate protection from malicious bots.
Protect the entirety of your apps
Selective coverage is no longer enough. Apps need protections for WAF, API security, DDoS, and bots.
Consistent security policies everywhere
Deploy consistent policies across your entire estate of apps regardless of where they’re hosted.
Gain valuable insights and telemetry across your distributed app infrastructure from a centralized user interface.

Explore Distributed Cloud WAAP Use Cases
Secure Apps Everywhere
Streamline app security across multi-cloud and edge environments
Mitigate web application attacks and vulnerabilities with comprehensive app security controls and uniform policy and observability, including simplified deployment and management of app security postures across environments and applications.
Protect against Malicious Bots
Improve visibility and identify automated, malicious traffic patterns
Provide enterprises with advanced bot defense and sophisticated security monitoring to eradicate bad traffic that targets user accounts, content scraping and ad fraud.
Manage and Secure APIs
Address modern API challenges with automatic API discovery, policy enforcement, and control across apps and APIs
Identify shadow APIs and mitigate API threats with zero-trust implementations for legacy and modern applications. Export Swagger files for API mapping and import these files to simplify security policy configurations.
Mitigate Distributed Denial of Service Attacks
Ensure app and infrastructure uptime and reliability against DDoS attacks
Distributed Cloud WAAP protects apps against volumetric L3-L7 DDoS attacks at the network edge, ensuring that the app still has global availability without impact to legitimate customers. Distributed Cloud WAAP also provides visibility into both historically mitigated and active attacks so that proactive controls can be enabled to further thwart unwanted bad actors.
