Currently, CDNetworks has developed a high-performance, continually evolving security platform. This platform delivers comprehensive security capabilities that cover business security, application security, network security, Zero-Trust security, security content delivery, and security management and operation. Moreover, CDNetworks has over 100 security experts dedicated to delivering state-of-the-art attack-defense technologies and security services, along with 200,000+ servers that operate around the clock in hardened environments to protect against security risks, vulnerabilities, and potential attack vectors.

In H1, 2021, the CDNetworks security platform monitored and intercepted 10.113 billion web application attacks and 34.147 billion malicious bot attacks. These figures represent a staggering increase of 2.4 times and 3.3 times compared to the same period in 2020, and an increase of 21.7 times and 6.3 times over the same period in 2019 — a disturbing trend that shows attacks doubling year after year. In today’s digital economy, the network has become a critical component that either drives a business’ success or contributes to its demise. As a result, protecting the security of the network has become fundamental to business operations, regardless of where those operations take place.
