'Down, shouldn't mean out' for enterprise data

Websites crashing is an accepted  part of any enterprise. The trick is to ensure business as usual,  through  hot-start alternatives. An Indian-led   US  Cloud company offers just that.

Bangalore, Marcx 18 2017: Even the biggest and biggest in the  business -- like Amazon Cloud Services -- are not immune to  break downs  that may creep over their operations,  from malicious or other sources.  But the millions of customers  of such  services expect to be insulated from these  glitches.

Webscale -- an Indian talent-led  US  Cloud company headquartered in the US Silicon Valley, is making enterprises a Godfather-like offer they can't refuse:    the world’s first and only integrated web application delivery solution that provides  scalability, high performance, security and control in a single, powerful platform.
Last week, Webscale, whose portfolio includes some free  web delivery tools for  smaller companies,  announced the first of a new line of a-la-carte firewall  solutions  that are aimed at addressing  pain points many businesses face  when trying to ensure   the security, availability and performance of their critical web applications.
Webscale’s  cloud-based Web Application Firewall (WAF)  is claimed to be  the first to focus on critical e-commerce platforms by offering  robust protection for both data traffic at the browser level, and the complete backend application infrastructure, in a single solution. Like its  flagship products the WAF   offers a complete solution -- making it unnecessary for smaller enterprises to  running to multiple providers -- one for running their  e-commerce application, another to secure it.
Webscale's Bangalore team  is second only to the headquarters in size.
Typically, Webcale manages more than 80 online storefronts for each of its  customers, in an environment when Distributed  Denial of Service ( DDoS)  attacks can be expected anytime, anywhere.  In the event of  such an attack, Webscale enables Shield Mode, instantly blocking bad traffic and validating genuine users, keeping the website fast and available protecting both potential revenue and maintaining brand reputation.
Says Bombay University and University of Southern California alumnus and  Webscale CEO Sonal Puri: “Security is a major concern for our customers, so the development and release of Webscale’s Cloud WAF has been a top priority. As a true cloud-based solution we are  able to learn across our customers, allowing for any fixes applied,  to be immediately distributed across our entire base. That is the beauty of a SaaS  (Software as a Service)  platform versus an appliance.”
