Security, Performance and Reliability for Internet Applications – IBM/Cloudflare Cloud Internet Services
In this exclusive live debate in association with IBM and Cloudflare – Disruptive LIVE presents a very special episode ‘Security, Performance and Reliability for Internet Applications – IBM/Cloudflare Cloud Internet Services’.
We begin the discussion on the topic of securing internet facing traffic. In a world DDOS attacks, malicious bots and data theft – where should digitally evolving companies focus their internet facing security? We begin with the network edge, before the traffic reaches the application, API end-point or most in most cases, the website.
In a recent IBM white-paper that surveyed over 1000 organizations it was found;
· 76% of the organisations reported two or more DDOS attacks in the last 12 months
· And these clients estimate that each DDOs attacks costs more than $250K per hour
· And the average cost of a data breach in the US is more than $7m
But is security the only factor in this debate? Or should performance and reliability also be factors? After all, an e-commerce site which is secure but slow is not a great option for businesses.
We discuss the general issues around security and consider the benefits of combining this with improved website performance, optimized mobile experience and Increased availability and reduced geographic latency.
We finish the debate by considering the partnership Cloudflare has grown with IBM Internet Cloud Services to deliver a fully integrated solution which is simple to use, with users seeing the benefits in less than 5 minutes.
