In responding to cyber security incidents, Eastern Europe has a proven track record of being one of the most resilient regions in terms of the ability to withstand and recover from cyber attacks, according to research by FM Global Group. However, with Europe’s new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) directive to go into effect next year, businesses across the entire region will need to deploy security solutions to fend off cyber attacks and protect the unauthorized access or leakage of personal data.
Evolink chose the Cloudbric WAF service because of its unique algorithm that allows the highest protection of web application of more than just the common types of attacks. Using a logic-based detection engine comprised of 26 preset security policies, Cloudbric can intelligently recognize and block both unknown and known web attacks, thus delivering one of the lowest false positives rates among industry competitors.
For preventive security solutions to be effective, low false positives rates are a must, and traditional WAFs that generate high false positives due to their detection capabilities relying solely on patterning-matching methods are inadequate in fully protecting businesses. Businesses in Central and Eastern Europe will require further attention as they plan and prepare for these new compliance standards as cyber security incidents rise by approximately 20% on average annually in those regions, according to International Business Group.
Evolink’s main goal is to enable our customers to protect their websites without compromising their productivity.
TJ Jung, VP of Product & Technology, said, “We are pleased to introduce a security service that is both reliable and affordable so that an even larger audience may reap the benefits of our WAF service. This strategic partnership with Evolink is a perfect fit in helping us deliver our award-winning WAF to the Balkans and the surrounding Eastern European region. We are excited to see Cloudbric’s service grow in protecting business critical information in surrounding borders where data compliance is more than just an industry standard.”
Biser Tzonev, CEO of Evolink commented that “Providing a full portfolio of reliable managed security services on the Balkans is a top priority for Evolink. Along with our DDoS mitigation offering, the new partnership with Cloudbric will allow us to address more efficiently the growing need for cyber security to various business customers.”
The new service is available on waf.evolink.com. The registration and activation of the service is done solely online via an intuitive interface and does not require any initial payment.
