Incapsula to Double Global Network Capacity by End of Year

Company to Add 15 New Points of Presence (POPs) and Grow Network Capacity Beyond 1.5 Tbps

REDWOOD SHORES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/07/14 -- Incapsula, the cloud-based website security and performance service, today announced plans to significantly increase its infrastructure capacity. Responding to both customer capacity demand, and increasingly sophisticated DDoS attacks, the company will bring its total Points of Presence (POPs) to 30 and increase its global coverage and network capacity to surpass 1.5 Tbps, and ensure zero impact during the largest possible attacks. Each of Incapsula's POPs will also be upgraded to cache 30 times more than its current capacity.

Over the past four quarters, the number of websites protected by Incapsula grew by over 600 percent. Incapsula is now used by some of the largest consumer electronics brands, online retailers, financial institutions and SaaS companies worldwide.

"Website and cloud application performance are as critical as they have ever been, and security challenges show no signs of abating," said Gur Shatz, co-founder and CEO. "As a result we are seeing record adoption of our service, and are increasing capacity to meet future demand."

The market for Incapsula's security and performance services continues to expand, fueled by rapid growth of SaaS online services and by the evolution of cyber threats, including high-volume DDoS attacks. Incapsula's recent DDoS Threat Landscape report showed that DDoS botnet activity increased by 240 percent over the last 12 months, driving up the demand for company's DDoS protection solutions. Incapsula's earlier Bot Traffic report also points to increased activity of hacker-owned bots, used for corporate espionage, website hijacking and data theft. Incapsula findings revealed that in 2013 these malicious bots accounted for over 31 percent of all Internet traffic.

In 2013, in response to these threats, Incapsula grew its network capacity by 500 percent. This year, the company plans to double its global network, expanding it from 16 to 30 high-powered data centers. In Q1, Incapsula already activated new data centers in Seattle, Dallas, and Paris, with more coming online in Toronto, Mexico City, Madrid, Lima, Seoul, Stockholm, Warsaw and other major cities around the globe.

The company is also building several "Mega POPs" in each region to deal with the largest possible attacks. When completed, Incapsula's network capacity will surpass 1.5 Tbps.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. Jack Norris reviews best practices to show how companies develop, deploy, and dynamically update these applications and how this data-first...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

Consumers increasingly expect their electronic "things" to be connected to smart phones, tablets and the Internet. When that thing happens to be a medical device, the risks and benefits of connectivity must be carefully weighed. Once the decision is made that connecting the device is beneficial, medical device manufacturers must design their products to maintain patient safety and prevent compromised personal health information in the face of cybersecurity threats. In his session at @ThingsExpo...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
