Safeguarding organisations with multi-layered protection and ensures high availability

September 19, 2022 -- Conversant, a leading content delivery network (CDN) and digital solutions provider in Southeast Asia, announced today the launch of new Web Application and API Protection (WAAP) offerings – in conjunction with Nexusguard, a global leader in distributed denial of service (DDoS) mitigation. The new WAAP offerings extend Conversant’s capabilities to provide enterprise cybersecurity from the CDN layer to web applications and APIs.
The WAAP offerings are a combination of solutions with ‘always-on’ DDoS protection, enterprise-grade web application firewall (WAF), and security layers on public-facing gateways, orchestrated to provide multi-layered protection against today’s most concerning threat vectors – public-facing websites, applications and APIs. By leveraging on WAAP, organisations are able to detect and mitigate cyber attacks effectively across multiple IT layers.

Combined with Conversant’s digital delivery network expertise and class leading deep CDN infrastructure in the region, customers can be assured of uninterrupted availability and low latency even during an attack.

“We are pleased to partner with Nexusguard to bring proven cybersecurity solutions to our customers and partners.” said Cheong Kong Wai, Founder & CEO of Conversant. “Organisations building digital trust in today’s connected world are placing priorities in ensuring resiliency, high availability and zero downtime. We have already onboarded some customers during our soft launch and look forward to safeguarding more organisations.”

“Nexusguard is excited to have more customers benefit from our WAAP solutions through our partnership with Conversant,” said Andy Ng, CEO of Nexusguard. “Our threat intelligence has been reporting on how most breaches begin at web applications and at the same time, there is a 55% rise in attacks on web applications and APIs year on year. There is an immediate need to address these threat vectors and Conversant can certainly help bring these much-needed solutions to more organisations.”

Conversant’s capabilities as a trusted expert enabler to organisations navigating in digital transformation is strengthened through its collaboration with Nexusguard.
