Act Fastly Against Web Application Attacks

Act Fastly Against Web Application Attacks

By Greg Tavarez

Web applications are prime targets for today’s attackers. They are often targeted because they provide an easy way to access sensitive data or carry out malicious activities. In fact, according to the Verizon 2022 DBIR, web applications are the number one vector and, not surprisingly, they are also connected to the high number of Denial of Service (DoS) attacks.

There doesn’t seem to be an answer in sight, with the number of web application attacks growing. Existing security teams are spread thin and don’t always have the expertise, time, or both to continuously monitor and detect these types of threats.

But then, in comes Fastly with its Fastly Managed Security Service, a premier 24/7 threat detection and response service dedicated to helping organizations significantly reduce the risk of web application attacks and associated business costs due to lost transactions.

Fastly, with its name really speaking for itself, is a fast edge cloud platform that helps brands deliver the fastest online experiences possible, while improving site performance, enhancing security and empowering innovation at global scale.

Fastly Managed Security Service is a premium offering that provides Fastly Next-Gen WAF customers with continuous monitoring and proactive mitigation of web-application attacks, backed by a 15-minute response time SLA for critical security incidents.

Staffed 24/7 by Fastly’s global Customer Security Operations Center, this service enables in-house teams to improve their overall security posture and focus on their core competencies, strategic initiatives and high-impact projects.

The service, available to Fastly’s global Next-Gen WAF customers, further demonstrates the company’s commitment to helping global marquee customers deliver innovative, secure digital experiences to their users. The Fastly Next-Gen WAF is a web application firewall that monitors for suspicious and anomalous web traffic and protects against attacks in real time.

“Today’s defenders face an uphill battle against cyber adversaries due to an exploding attack surface and increasing volumetric attacks, particularly DDoS attacks,” said Gino Lang, Vice President of Customer Security, Fastly. “By providing global 24/7 proactive protection, Fastly Managed Security Service delivers comprehensive visibility and the expert staff needed to quickly identify and mitigate potential threats, freeing up organizations to focus their security staff on other business priorities.”

The release of the service builds on the success of Fastly’s Response Security Service and other security offerings.
