■ Reasons for adoption
In recent years, the threat of "DDoS attacks," which cause web services to stop functioning by placing a large amount of processing load on servers and networks, has been increasing. In the "Top 10 Information Security Threats 2019" released by the Information-Technology Processing Agency (IPA), DDoS attacks were ranked 6th in the list of information security incidents that had a significant social impact in 2018, up from 9th place in the previous year.
In addition, in the financial industry, countermeasures against DDoS attacks have become particularly important, as many financial institutions fell victim to DDoS attacks in 2017 and there were large-scale incidents where attack groups demanded money in exchange for stopping the attacks.
Furthermore, with the spread of 5G, IoT, and remote-work, the scale of DDoS attacks, which can cause significant damage to companies in a relatively simple manner, is expected to increase as the world goes more and more online in the future.
Due to this, Ace Securities had already adopted Shadankun's DDoS Security-type unlimited website plan (previous version), but in order to protect websites from the threat of DDoS attacks on an even larger scale than before, Ace Securities decided to update its cloud-based WAF "Shadankun" to the new DDoS Security-type specification version.
■ Comment from Mr. Kazuto Miki, System Planning Manager, Ace Securities Co., Ltd.
In recent years, cybersecurity measures have become a major management issue in the financial sector, and society demands further strengthening of cybersecurity measures in the future due to social changes and further spread of IT. We are No. 1 in Japan in terms of IFA (Independent Financial Advisor) registrations, and our website is a very important information provision tool for IFAs and IFA clients and requires a stable operation. We are very encouraged to be able to work with Cyber Security Cloud, which has excellent technology and services, to strengthen cybersecurity in this field that has become a major social issue.
