Asia-Pacific Web Application Firewall Solutions Market, Forecast to 2021
The Asia-Pacific (APAC) Web application firewall (WAF) solution market continued to grow tremendously in 2016 by 27.6% year-on-year (YoY).

The strong growth was seen in most of the APAC countries with China, Hong Kong, India, and Singapore being the top performing markets.

Key drivers include the increasing number of organizations shifting toward the Web front and the rising Internet penetration rate; the evolved threat landscape that results in greater concerns over data breaches; stricter requirements for industry compliances, and local regulations that drive organizations to invest more in measures for data protection and to avoid potential liability issues; and increasing migration from web application into the cloud observed from organizations.
