Even if a WAF has a superior technical capability, the management
accountable for procurement have never been fired for purchasing an
inferior product listed on the Gartner MQ.

Hence, WAFEC should influence Gartner to require mandatory technical
controls in their product selection of the MQ.

Maybe Gartner had also considered WAFEC when creating their crietria
for the MQ for instance?  We can't answer this question until we have
completed this research as any statement until then is hearsay.
