The global application gateway size is expected to grow from USD 1.6 billion in 2019 to USD 2.5 billion by 2024, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 10.0% during the forecast period. With the increasing use of web applications for competitive business, the number of application attacks is also increasing. Application layer attacks are designed by focusing on specific vulnerabilities or issues. These vulnerabilities or issues can hamper application performance. Application vulnerabilities are spoilt to attack applications and deny services. These application vulnerabilities include injection, broken authentication, sensitive data exposure, and broken access control. Attackers develop new attack types and vectors that are used to launch a new wave of attacks. These attacks threaten users’ privacy. There are different application-layer attacks that aim toward Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS). The different types of DDoS attacks include HTTP flood, slow post, slow read, long-lived Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) sessions, large payload POST, and Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CEV) attack vector. For understanding the intensity of the attacks, enterprises need application gateways that provide the necessary security by filtering the application data on networks.
