As cyber threats evolve, ensuring your online presence is protected against attacks from hackers becomes a crucial priority. At ADM, we leverage advanced technologies to keep websites running smoothly, even under severe cyber threats. Here’s our approach and how it can benefit your business.

Web security encompasses various components, starting from the cybersecurity skills of users and administrators, to high-quality, secure application architecture and code, as well as secure infrastructure (servers and databases) and network configurations. At ADM, we ensure every aspect is covered to provide comprehensive protection.

One way to safeguard our customers’ websites, we utilize IRS (Internet Routing Security) infrastructure, which provides a reliable and secure backbone for hosting services. IRS ensures that your website is protected from routing attacks and unauthorized data interception, offering a robust foundation for all our security measures. Our solutions range from single-host setups to highly dynamic, scalable websites that can handle varying levels of traffic and demands.

Starting with a simple setup, our single-host solutions are designed to be very reasonably priced, making them accessible to businesses of all sizes. This cost-effective entry point allows you to scale your website as needed without breaking the bank.

Leveraging AWS CloudFront for Speed and Reliability

Amazon Web Services (AWS) CloudFront is a content delivery network (CDN) that enhances the speed and reliability of your website. By distributing your static and dynamic content—such as HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and images—across multiple locations worldwide, CloudFront ensures faster load times and improved user experience.

Extra Protection with AWS Web Application Firewall (WAF)

AWS WAF is a web application firewall that adds an extra layer of security to your applications. It protects against various threats, including SQL injection and cross-site scripting, by analyzing each request’s headers and patterns. Managed filters recognize and block malicious activities in real-time, ensuring your site remains secure.

Real-World Success: Stopping Attacks in Their Tracks

One notable example of our security measures in action involved a massive DDoS attack on a client’s website. The attack, which originated from over 2,000 hosts, was fully mitigated in just three minutes without any impact on the client’s business operations. This success story underscores the effectiveness of our solutions in maintaining website uptime and performance.

Cost-Effective Security Solutions

Our services are not only robust but also cost-effective. For instance, AWS WAF costs approximately $20 per 10 million requests + setup fee, and a website utilizing CloudFront CDN incurs around $10 for 1,000,000 requests and 100 gigabytes of data transfer. These rates ensure that even small to medium-sized enterprises can afford top-tier security.

Flexibility Across Different Hosting Environments

One common question is whether these security solutions are limited to AWS-hosted websites. The answer is no. Our solutions, including CloudFront and AWS WAF, can protect websites hosted on any platform—whether on-premises, other cloud providers, or hybrid environments. This flexibility ensures that you can enhance your website’s security without the need to migrate your entire infrastructure to AWS.

Conclusion: Why You Should Care

The security and reliability of your company’s online presence are critical. Investing in advanced security solutions protects your business from potential financial losses and reputational damage and it also ensures a seamless experience for your customers. By leveraging technologies like AWS CloudFront and WAF, you can rest assured that your website is fortified against the ever-present threat of cyber-attacks.
