  • Analytical data on application threats, attack vectors, and data throughput.

  • Still growing through their acquisition into Oracle Dyn and while the continued process maturity is great, it is worth noting.
  • Their Express option was pulled from production too quickly and caused a lot of business disruption.
Their technical team is great, their portal is easily the best of those I have reviewed it against (including Akamai, CloudFlare, and Imperva), and they are a dedicated technology partner through and through.

Dyn WAF is a good product, don't get me wrong. Zenedge was constantly improving the product, adding new features on a regular basis. It works very well for dynamic websites, helping weed out SQL Injection, XSS, XSRF, and other attacks. We have also used this product to protect REST API endpoints. Again, the product works very well to repel attacks.

It is already well known that if we have a presence on the web we must be protected, that has no discussion. Oracle Dyn Web Application Security Platform is able to provide the necessary protection to any organization, no matter the size of it, thus avoiding very unwanted cases that the applications, data and the image of the organization are compromised.
