Eight Key Areas You Need to Protect

Your Business

Bot management doesn’t need to be a full-time job — preventing costly credential stuffing attacks can improve user experience and can give your business an edge


Ensure your APIs are protected from the same threats as your website

Web Applications

It is critical to protect web apps against denial of service attacks, web application attacks, and bot attacks

Data Centers

Your Internet-facing assets including your network bandwidth, applications, servers, and IoT devices are at risk of denial of service attacks and malware

DNS Services

Your authoritative DNS needs to be available 24/7, yet is subject denial of service attacks, forgery, and manipulation

Enterprise Applications

Provide secure access to enterprise applications, while protecting end users from advanced threats and ensuring data is not exfiltrated over rDNS
