Success stories

Protecting Applications and APIs

Securing services against sophisticated attackers requires expertise built by repetition.
The CSOC detects and mitigates some of the internet's largest attacks daily.

Mitigating DDoS

A financial services provider was the target of a multi-Tbps DDoS attack. We quickly implemented fingerprint blocking to return services to normal and prevent continued DDoS attempts.

Blocking Cache Busting

A media provider was hit by persistent cache-busting attacks. In just minutes, we identified the cause of the attack and implemented mitigations to bring their services back online and limit further attacks.

Averting Account Takeover 

A SaaS provider was inundated by a malicious botnet spraying compromised credentials. We not only mitigated the attack but also implemented rate limiting for their authentication endpoints and fortified them against future Account Takeover attacks.
