TOKYO (PRWEB) July 10, 2020
Cyber Security Cloud, Inc. is pleased to announce the new version of its cloud-based WAF "Shadankun", a DDoS security-type unlimited website plan with enhanced functions using a new anti-DDoS system.
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.
If a corporate server or website suffers a DDoS attack and falls into communication failure or outage, it can lead to costly losses, including lost business opportunities and significant damage to the company's brand image.
About the new specification of "Shadankun" DDoS security-type unlimited website plan
In order to counter the growing threat of DDoS attacks, Cyber Security Cloud has updated the anti-DDoS system of "Shadankun" DDoS security-type unlimited website plan, which enables companies with many websites and group companies to provide DDoS attack countermeasures and WAF countermeasures for a fixed price without limiting the number of websites. This makes it possible to respond to DDoS attacks on a much larger scale than ever before.
In addition, the following five new features are added to improve the usability of the service.
1. Dedicated DDoS security type management screen
A dedicated management screen that allows users to view the detection status of DoS/DDoS attacks and view/modify various settings.
2. Ability to change learning mode and defense mode
Users can change the mode to learn the threshold or protect against DoS/DDoS attacks, depending on the operational situation. Also, if a false-positive occurs after starting to operate in defense mode, it is possible to avoid it by switching to learning mode.
3. Whitelist function
With the anti-DDoS function, users can predefine which IP addresses they do not want to be detected.
4. Defense notification Email function
A notification function that detects DoS/DDoS attacks and notifies you by email when the defense begins and ends.
5. Monthly Report (*under development)
Provision of monthly DoS/DDoS attack status reports as a standard feature.
Recently, due to the impact of the coronavirus, the rapid spread of telework and other business and shopping activities have accelerated the shift to online, and it is becoming increasingly important for many companies to increase the percentage of their online sales in the future. On the other hand, recent years have seen an increase in DDoS attacks on SaaS services*1 and DDoS attacks using IoT devices as a stepping stone to increase cybersecurity risks due to DDoS attacks as the use of the Internet expands.
In order to protect corporate websites, which are becoming an increasingly important part of the infrastructure of our lives, from the threat of cyber-attacks, CSC plans to continue to strive to help build an environment in which users can use its services with peace of mind and protect corporate businesses.
Cloud-based WAF "Shadankun" is a web security service that detects and blocks cyber-attacks on websites and web servers. Utilizing Cyneural, an attack detection AI engine using deep learning, it detects general attacks as well as unknown attacks and false-positives at high speeds, while Cyhorus, one of the world's leading threat intelligence teams, quickly responds to the latest threats. Also, it has been ranked No. 1 in Japan in terms of adoption rate. *2
