SecureIQLab Launches Cloud Web Application Firewall

SecureIQLab, a premier cloud validation provider, announces today its third version of Web Application Firewall (WAF 3.0) testing.

This version includes the first-of-a-kind API security test case. WAF 3.0 evaluates the capabilities of security solutions to withstand today’s complex cyber threat landscape.

SecureIQLab’s objective and transparent testing process provides security vendors with empirical data that validates the claims of their WAF and API solutions and identifies potential weaknesses in the systems.

The test period begins on Aug. 7, and the results are anticipated to be published in November. Vendors across the industry are invited to participate.

SecureIQLab’s WAF 3.0 test builds upon its last round with three key enhancements:

  • Inclusion of API security test cases based on OWASP Top 10: 2023 (Open Web Application Security Project) standards
  • Improved operational efficiency mapped to enterprise metrics
  • Enhanced real-world false positive-based scenarios

Cloud infrastructure adoption has exploded in recent years and is expected to increase with time. This growth, coupled with the complex nature of cyber threats, makes the need for advanced security infrastructure more urgent than ever.

Web applications comprise one of the most common attack vectors that result in security incidents and data breaches, making WAF and API security crucial to the protection of enterprises.

The WAF 3.0 testing will include vendors from industry leaders to market entrants looking to evaluate their solution’s capabilities.

Part of SecureIQLab’s value proposition is the transparent nature of its methodology, allowing all participants to observe and even provide feedback on how they plan to evaluate vendors’ security resiliency, operational efficiency and return on security investment.

In addition to its WAF 3.0 and API testing, SecureIQLab will conduct tests for Secure Service Edge (SSE) solutions imminently. Interested enterprise security vendors are invited to contact SecureIQLab at
