CYBER SECURITY & AVAILABILITY
Cyber attacks are on the rise across industries, worldwide. Falling victim can compromise business operations, hurt client/customer confidence, and ultimately result in massive revenue loss.
Cyber attacks in the form of malware, phishing, cross-site scripting, SQL injection, man-in-the-middle, or denial of service, among many others may corrupt digital/online properties of many organizations, including startups, small and medium-sized businesses, as well as large enterprises. In the same vein, cyber attack victims can be random or targeted, depending on the cyber criminal’s intentions.
To protect your systems — including hardware, software, and data (of the company and its customers), it is best to adhere to a solid cyber security plan that’s anchored on a wide array of web security solutions.
IPC offers a lineup of products to particularly fend off DDoS attacks and other cyber security threats against various web applications.
Content Delivery Network (CDN) is an effective way of accelerating the delivery of web-based content such as video and audio streaming, online gaming, software downloads, patches, images and other multimedia globally or to a targeted location.
CDN solves issues such as slow website and web application response, extended download time, and video streaming delays to reduce page abandonment translating to lost revenue and tarnished brand equity.
CDN is for businesses that rely heavily on real-time content delivery such as Online gaming, E-commerce, Media and Entertainment, as well as Advertising. The service capitalizes on a system of geographically distributed points of presence (Pops) across the globe, creating a localized copy of the content. This minimizes latency, improves download speeds and video streaming, thus helping you create an improved online experience for your consumers.
IPC Contentcast CDN is the philippines' first enterprise CDN service offering backed by a global federation of data center and telco partners.
A distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack is a malicious attempt to disrupt normal traffic of a targeted server, service or network by overwhelming the target or its surrounding infrastructure with a flood of Internet traffic.
The website downtime that results from DDoS can cost businesses thousands or even millions of dollars an hour due to lost revenue and brand damage.
For attack-prone organizations such as gaming companies, financial institutions, and government agencies, IPC’s premium DDoS attack mitigation services is an essential subscription to ensure business continuity in light of such virtual disasters. Its GRE (Generic Route Encapsulation) Tunnel abilities are recommended to easily and persistently avert malicious traffic. Such services need to be outsourced to DDoS mitigation experts who work round-the-clock to monitor network activity and quickly implement security measures in the event of an attack.
To further bolster its capabilities, IPC has partnered with the industry's top leaders when it comes to DDoS Mitigation. These are Continent 8, Imperva Incapsula, and Nexusguard. With these partnerships, Filipino companies are given access to the world-class security needed to keep business afloat against deadly DDoS attacks.
inCAST (In-Country Attack Scrubbing Tactics) is the DDoS Mitigation service wholly developed by IPC.
This is the first and only DDoS Mitigation service in the Philippines to feature in-country data scrubbing for local enterprises and institutions. As it is a domestic service, all data are kept locally, thus significantly reducing data sovereignty concerns and network latency issues.
Data scrubbing is done at IPC’s three state-of-the-art data centers and are operated by experienced and highly skilled DDoS Mitigation professionals. In addition to DDoS attacks, IPC’s experts also specialize in fending off Website defacement and Web Application vulnerabilities. Lastly, inCAST is further strengthened by its local support teams which makes communication easier for Filipino businesses.
Web Application Firewall
IPC’s Web Application Firewall (WAF) service is a cloud-based solution deployed to monitor and control network incoming data traffic to a company’s website.
This is typically addressed against website defacement and other web application security threats. A web application firewall is an appliance, server plugin, or filter that applies a set of rules to an HTTP conversation. By customizing the rules to your application, many attacks can be identified and blocked.
Being part of IPC’s inCAST (In-Country Attack Scrubbing Tactics) security service, IPC’s WAF is done domestically, thus having reduced latency and faster turnaround time. This is highly advantageous against other services which require scrubbing operations to be farmed out to centers in other countries, leading to latency issues.
