Best Vulnerability Management Tool
These products perform network/device vulnerability assessment and/or penetration testing. They may use active or passive testing, and are either hardware- or software-based that and reports vulnerabilities using some standard format/reference.
Best Web Application Firewall
Application firewalls inspect the body of packets and restricts access to legitimate application traffic while blocking access to other parts of the operating system. They typically use deep packet inspection, provide logging and reporting, block real-time traffic, provide alerting capabilities, and offer auto-update features, perform web caching, provide content filtering, offer web-based access to reporting and/or logging, protect traffic from reaching the underlying operating system, and filter application traffic to only legitimate requests.
