Webscale Wins TMC's 2018 Network Security Excellence Award

Award recognizes Webscale for Revolutionary Technologies in Cloud and Web Application Security

SUNNYVALE, Calif., March 27, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Webscale, the E-Commerce Cloud Company, announced today that it has won TMC’s Network Security Excellence Award presented by INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine.

Supporting today’s online consumers that demand seamless, 24x7 access to their preferred storefronts, while mitigating cyber-threats, is 10% technology and 90% implementation. This award recognizes excellence in both technology and the best practices used to deploy and manage network security.

Webscale’s security solutions deliver 360-degree protection for web application infrastructure against malicious bots, brute force attacks (such as DDoS), malware insertions, credit card theft attempts, application-specific threats, and zero-day exploits. While Webscale Cloud Secure eliminates the need for expensive content delivery networks (CDNs) and web application firewalls (WAFs), Cloud BOT Manager offers next-generation, machine learning-powered bot management capabilities to tackle malicious automated threats. Together, these solutions successfully mitigated over 17 million threats across 1,000+ online storefronts, during the holiday shopping weekend in 2018. These threats included malicious bots, scrapers, account takeovers, credit card fraud attacks, and brute force login attempts.

“This award is a testament to our security leadership in the e-commerce hosting market,” said Sonal Puri, CEO of Webscale. “Consumer loyalty to brands is fragile, and a failure to protect their data can have a rapid, negative impact on revenue as they take their business to safer storefronts. Security used to be last on the list for e-commerce leaders, after performance and website uptime, but today, it sits at the top.”

“In the past year, Webscale’s security offerings have demonstrated extraordinary industry leadership, growth, and customer success,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “We look forward to seeing them succeed in the market.”
