Cyber security is the single, greatest threat to companies doing business online today. In Nigeria, attacks are increasing at an alarming rate putting more business at risk. Between 2015 to 2018, the cost of cybercrime had quadrupled with predictions that data breaches will amount to $2.1 trillion globally by 2019, increasing to almost four times the estimated cost of breaches in 2015.

It is a scalable and reliable solution that protects your business and keeps your operations online during a DDoS attack by collecting information, detecting and mitigating harmful DDoS traffic far away from your organization’s network edge, ensuring zero disruption to your network services.
