  • More Scenario-based Risk Management

To better meet the protection needs that organizations face in real-world business situations, CDNetworks has designed its WAAP solution to collect information about the methods and characteristics employed by major cyberattacks in specific scenarios that cross far-ranging industries. With this information, the solution can provide organizations with a broad spectrum of scenarios-based risk management capabilities. This allows organizations to put a stranglehold on unwanted requests in advance based on their unique business requirements and evaluate risks dynamically without relying solely on known attack patterns and manual security rules.

With E-Commerce, for example, CDNetworks’ WAAP solution enables organizations to set up their own business security indicator and protection strategies based on specific logins, registrations, marketing activities, and payment scenarios. By utilizing anomaly and risk-based scoring techniques, the solution can proactively analyze and manage suspicious requests to ensure the continuity of an organization’s core business. This approach has a significant positive impact on meeting various business objectives such as direct revenue, branding, and competition.

  • Effective Zero-day Protection Backed by a Powerful Intelligence Library

CDNetworks’ WAAP solution has been designed from the ground up to ensure that organizations benefit from the highest availability and reliability possible by safeguarding their businesses from complex cyber attacks before they can occur.

CDNetworks’ daily collection of massive amounts of data across 2,800 global Points of Presence (PoPs) combined with the sharing of third-party threat intelligence libraries and the machine learning capabilities of CDNetworks’ WAAP platform all work in concert to produce a context- and data-aware perimeter that identifies threats efficiently, auto-updates defense rules continuously, and helps organizations patch vulnerabilities, including zero-day vulnerabilities, forming a network-wide synchronization shield that significantly improves an organization’s security posture by eliminating sole reliance on perimeter-based protection.

  • API Full Lifecycle Management and Protection

Today’s cyberthreat landscape is witnessing a year-after-year increase in network attacks initiated through vulnerabilities in application programming interfaces (APIs). CDNetworks’ WAAP Solution provides full lifecycle management of API assets that helps enterprises safeguard vulnerable APIs throughout their lifecycle and effectively assists with asset management. In addition, the solution can intelligently detect sensitive data such as Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and prompt organizations to strengthen appropriate prevention measures for data.
