Key Summary/Facts

  • DDoS attacks are on the rise. In terms of relevant data, according to the 2022 Verizon DBIR report (Data Breach Investigation Report) , DDoS attacks are the number one security threat (46% of the total number of attacks), and it is growing every year. Therefore, comprehensive protection against DDoS attacks is crucial. With the launch of the DDoS scrubbing solution, Edgio can provide protection for all networks and applications, including dedicated scrubbing capabilities using standard protocols such as BGP and GRE tunnels to defend against source-pointing network attacks on non-network applications. Through its 250+Tbps layer 3-7 DDoS protection combined with specialized DDoS scrubbing technology, Edgio provides enterprises with comprehensive protection to ensure greater resilience and uptime of their networks and applications.
  • Outbound security rules make it easier for companies to prevent data breaches caused by attackers exploiting known vulnerabilities. Traditional security rules only inspect inbound requests to mitigate application attacks coming in from the outside. Edgio can now increase the scanning capabilities of outbound traffic by adding security rules to prevent sensitive data and code leakage, providing an additional layer of protection for customers’ confidential data, while preventing customers from executing malicious code. Enhancements to Edgio also detect and block requests from anonymous proxies, enabling additional control over access to client applications. Through the advanced rule customizer, customers can control the sensitivity of individual security rules, maximizing their accuracy while minimizing false positives. With enhanced configuration management capabilities, developers can quickly deploy protection for new applications by importing and exporting configuration JSON directly through the API and user interface.
  • Edgio supports customers to control access to their applications through pre-established access control rules to meet compliance requirements or prevent commercial ties with certain countries. In a recent feature improvement, Edgio has added support for finer-grained regional control in its WAAP access rules and custom security rules, which can be granular to the regional or provincial level, so that in today’s ever-changing geopolitical environment Support customers in meeting current compliance requirements.

Edgio’s purpose is to help enterprises protect network applications and data through a comprehensive security approach, while improving speed and reliability. Its advanced security solutions provide comprehensive network and application DDoS protection, Advanced Web Application and API Protection (WAAP) with dual WAAP modes, and enterprise-grade bot management. For more information on Edgio security products.
