Web App and API Protection (WaaP) is a collective name for solutions that offer both web application and API protection from various attack vectors by combining bot detection and mitigation, and inspection of API requests. An example is inspecting the parameters the client sends in the request and identifying invalid/non-legitimate parameters and blocking such invalid requests from getting to the application service.
