Fastly Recognized in the Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Web Application and API Protection

For the second year in a row, Fastly has been named a “Challenger” in the 2022 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Web Application and API Protection (WAAP). 

On the heels of Fastly’s recent recognition as a Gartner Peer Insights™ Customers’ Choice for WAAP for the fourth consecutive year, we believe this latest acknowledgment underscores Fastly’s success in delivering digital experiences at the apex of speed, performance, and safety. 

Matt Ogle, a site reliability engineer at linktree said, "We’ve got a lot on our plate, so we look for technology that gives us what we need out of the box. [Security solutions like the Fastly Next-Gen WAF] that you can turn on and immediately get known threat signature detection is really helpful for a team like ours." 

And the peer reviews shared on the Gartner Peer Insights page for Fastly Next-Gen WAF reinforced our recognition as a Challenger by Gartner from our perspective: A site reliability engineer in the media and publishing industry noted: "Fastly Next-Gen WAF is easy to integrate, configure and provides great insights." 

We look forward to continuing to provide our customers world-class security, speed, and performance at global scale alongside responsive and superior support.
