Moreover, solid demand for DDoS prevention, application-layer firewall and bot management services are key catalysts. The traction gained by Secure Web Gateway, Page Integrity Manager, and Enterprise Defender is noteworthy. Further, increasing adoption of mobile data/apps on growing mobile data traffic bodes well. Notably, shares of the company have outperformed the industry in the past year. However, unfavorable foreign exchange and seasonal summer traffic are headwinds. Further, the company has withdrawn 2020 guidance due to uncertainties related to the coronavirus pandemic." (4/30/2020)
