Overview

With limited security expertise, protecting your web applications is a daunting task. Web Application Protector provides automated web application firewall (WAF) and distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) protection that’s designed to offload the complexity associated with a traditional WAF. Easy to deploy and manage, Web Application Protector is backed by the scale and reliability of the Akamai Intelligent Edge Platform ― so you worry less about threats and focus more on growing your business.

Azure Application Gateway is a web traffic load balancer that enables you to manage traffic to your web applications. Traditional load balancers operate at the transport layer (OSI layer 4 - TCP and UDP) and route traffic based on source IP address and port, to a destination IP address and port.
