Our global providers

With attacks growing in size and complexity, we work with an ecosystem of specialist global providers to ensure our customers remain secure and available.

Minimizing risk, maximizing uptime

We know how critical it is to keep your web apps online. RedShield’s globally distributed edge network provides an advanced layered defence against volumetric, protocol and sophisticated layer 7 (application level) DDoS attacks. 

Through this we are able to effectively morph our defences continuously based on new attacks coming in and we deliver application availability and security as a measurable outcome to you.

Ensuring your applications are resilient, hardened, and cloud-ready

For your applications to keep serving legitimate incoming requests in the face of an attack, you need advanced defenses. 

RedShield’s automated system is able to distinguish good and bad traffic by throwing an array of escalating challenges. For example, our system utilises databases, identifies browser plugins, employs the use of heuristics and can serve CAPTCHA’s all to determine whether or not the request is a bad actor.  

We’ll keep the attacks at bay, while you let your customers continue to play.

Helping you get DDoS-ready

Penetration tests almost always exclude DDoS and stress/load testing. RedShield’s optional DDoS testing service, Blackeye, ensures effective DDoS controls are implemented and validated by:

  • Simulating current DDoS attack types and trends in a controlled environment
  • Fire-drilling your incident response
  • Delivering a report identifying strengths and weaknesses, and detailing clear steps to improve resiliency
  • Working with your team to tailor controls to your environment, with thresholds for alerting and rate limiting based on your system capacity

Always on-alert

RedShield’s incident response systems are always at the ready. Our AI and advanced correlation engine highlights issues and recommends actions based on cumulative learnings from responding to thousands of attacks across healthcare, finance, and government applications and APIs. And if needed, issues are escalated to our 24/7 expert cyber defense team for response.

Our team of battle-hardened security professionals live on the front line, so responding to and successfully mitigating a significant layer 7 denial of service (DoS) attack is just another day in the office. In the case of an incident, our team acts as an extension of yours to keep your customers happy and avoid disruption to business operations.

DDoS protection comes as standard with every shielding plan

RedShield shields your application and API vulnerabilities from attack, so you can get on with business.

Shields are small blocks of code designed to fix an otherwise exploitable vulnerability in an application. We can get shields up and running in hours, with no integration required, no impact on legitimate application functionality, and without touching your code.

Integrating with your change management, incident management, and operational reporting procedures, RedShield’s AI-powered, expert-managed solution becomes an extension of your cybersecurity operation.
