In October of 2015, Amazon introduced two new security features: AWS WAF and Amazon Inspector. Amazon Inspector is a web application scanner that scans for vulnerabilities within the AWS environment. From a competitive standpoint, the Inspector tool is one of many tools that exist in a hyper-competitive market.
However, the AWS WAF might be the biggest threat the Edge Security market has ever faced. It can do to the Edge Security market what CloudFront + S3 did to the CDN Origin Storage market, obliterate it. And this time AWS is not alone but has the company of CloudFlare, the #1 DDoS Mitigation startup by customer count and sales growth. Is it possible the dual threat of AWS and CloudFlare can force the DDoS + WAF market to suffer the same fate as CDN Origin Storage?
