Get protection and performance in one simple package

DDoS Protection

Industry analytics confirm two major trends: DDoS attacks continue to increase in strength, and attacks are becoming more sophisticated by moving up to the application stack. Websites and applications require the resilience and intelligence of a scalable network to combat the biggest and newest attacks. IBM Cloud Internet Services offers integrated, unmetered DDoS mitigation to protect against all kinds and sizes of DDoS attacks and other unwanted traffic.

Web Application Firewall (WAF)

On-premise firewalls quickly become outdated and require professional service hours to regularly update rules to protect against new threats. An enterprise-class web application firewall (WAF) protects your internet property from common vulnerabilities like SQL injection attacks, cross-site scripting, and cross-site forgery requests with no changes to your existing infrastructure. When a new threat is identified, it will automatically be blocked from all 9,000,000 websites on Cloudflare’s network.

Global Load Balancer

Over-utilized or geographically distant servers add unnecessary latency and degrade the visitor experience. Poor visitor experiences like these have a direct impact on revenue, reputation and customer loyalty.  Operating at the DNS-level and supporting any protocol, from HTTP(S) through to TCP and UDP -based services, IBM Cloud Internet Services Load Balancing utilizes a pool implementation that allows for the traffic to be distributed to multiple origins, mitigating the impact of disruptions caused by a single provider or server.

Your one-stop shop for essential edge services

Using Cloudflare's 150+ Global Points of Presence (PoPs), IBM Cloud™ Internet Services includes Domain Name Service (DNS), Global Load Balancer (GLB), Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection, Web Application Firewall (WAF), Transport Layer Security (TLS), and Caching. Everything you need to gain rock-solid protection and superior performance for your website, application or service.
