Better safeguard your assets from DDoS attacks and massive outages

The Internet continues to connect more people, places and things, resulting in new security risks. What happens if your website goes down for an hour? A day? A holiday weekend?

Managed web defense from IBM® helps you plan for, respond to and correlate data during an attack. We also help you stop attacks before they affect your web presence by using an additional protection layer in the cloud. IBM uses cloud-based Akamai Kona Site Defender technology to provide a multilayered approach to web protection. Together with Akamai, IBM X-Force® security specialists can provide a more robust solution designed to combat distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks.
