Cyber Security Market Reset for SMBs: Fireblade Delivers Enterprise-Class DDoS Protection at 1/20th of Competitors' Price

BOSTON --(Business Wire)--

Fireblade 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 globe."

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.
