-- CDNetworks offers fast and secure cloud application delivery
SAN JOSE, California, July 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, CDNetworks announces Cloud Security 2.0 including next generation behavioral web application firewall (WAF) technology integrated into CDNetworks' global content delivery network (CDN). This comprehensive solution combines web application and website acceleration with end to end security including DDoS attack mitigation at the network and application layers with 24/7 monitoring and customer portal visibility.
"Concerns about network and web application security are becoming intertwined with content and web application performance," said Jim Davis, Senior Analyst, 451 Research. "Providing these formerly separate functions as services from the cloud can help increase both network performance and security while reducing complexity and management costs."
CDNetworks Cloud Security is a proven solution for DDoS attack protection and mitigation where malicious traffic is filtered and quarantined while legitimate traffic continues to flow, thus reducing the impact on end-users and revenue. Now, next generation WAF technology from industry leader Fireblade is integrated into CDNetworks' global network, providing an intelligent firewall that is self-learning and self-evolving as opposed to older signature-based firewall technology.
"CDNetworks Cloud Security solution is different from anything available," said Shay Rapaport, Co-Founder and CEO, Fireblade. "First of all, it's combined with website and application acceleration and second, the integration with Fireblade creates the only global CDN with integrated DDoS protection and a behavioural web application firewall. This solution is more effective than signature-based, plain-vanilla solutions out there and at the same time easier to operate."
90% of websites are vulnerable to attack in all types of industries including ecommerce, gaming, SaaS solutions, and media. When websites and cloud applications are under attack, the user experience suffers and revenue is lost. By integrating Cloud Security into CDNetworks global infrastructure of 160 points of presence, the length, intensity and impact of attacks can be reduced.
"In 2013, we released our Cloud Security DDoS mitigation at the network layer (3,4)," said Will Rahim, Senior Vice President Customer Experience, CDNetworks US/EMEA. "Now, we have leveraged next generation WAF technology to further protect our customers from attacks at the application layer (7)."
