Cyber Security Market Reset for SMBs: Fireblade Delivers Enterprise-Class DDoS Protection at 1/20th of Competitors' Price
BOSTON --(Business Wire)--
today unveiled a comprehensive website security and traffic management
tool for small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs). The multifaceted
service bundles website
security, speed, monitoring and visibility capabilities into one
cost-effective traffic orchestration solution. Unlike other vendors,
Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS)
protection is included with the Fireblade offering, which starts as low
as $10 per month. Other solutions charge as much as $200 per month for
DDoS protection alone.
"The saying 'The Internet is a tough neighborhood' is truer than it's
ever been before," said Shay Rapaport, Fireblade's CEO and co-founder.
"This means enterprise-class security, performance and uptime are
absolute requirements for SMBs today, and that simply must include
complete DDoS protection that's priced for SMB budgets."
Fireblade's SMB offering is cloud-based - no download or installation is
needed - with an intuitive dashboard that is more advaned than any
other system on the market. Fireblade's user-interface (UI) gives
website owners complete transparency and control over potentially
damaging attacks, website health, performance and user profiles. The
dashboard contains easy-to-read graphs, extensive drill-down options and
configurable hot alerts.
Customers are already seeing the benefits and ease-of-use of Fireblade's
bundled offering. "eMind turned to Fireblade to solve acute security and
abuse issues that we were facing," said Lahav Savir, CEO of eMind.
"It just works. I have no better words. Bot attacks and form abuses
stopped immediately, and our site now works much faster all around the
Fireblade's solution bundles all aspects of security and traffic
management into one comprehensive offering:
Security - Fireblade's robust security engine blends behavioral
analysis, risk assessment and a global reputation firewall to provide
unsurpassed protection against attacks, including DDoS, hacking,
spamming, password hacking, scraping and more.
Speed - Dynamic site acceleration enables websites to operate up to
twice as fast, leveraging the world's best and most stable Content
Delivery Network (CDN) infrastructure from Edgecast. Fireblade
achieves this through a three-layered process: routing users to the
Point of Presence (POP) server closest to them, data compression, and
Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) optimization.
Monitoring - Enables website owners to stay on top of uptime,
performance and health with actual user measurements, real-time
alerts, and detailed reports, eliminating the need for separate site
availability monitoring tools.
Visibility - Fireblade provides insight into traffic sources in real
time through HTTP data injections, and offline through a UI with
clickable timeline charts that reveal extended information.
Pricing and Availability
Fireblade's self-service SMB offering is available now, free-of-charge
during the 60-day trial period. Detailed pricing and plan options,
beginning as low as $10 per month, can be viewed here.
