IBM Cloud Internet Services

IBM Cloud Internet Services (CIS) is an easily configurable solution for customers looking to secure their internet facing applications from DDoS attacks, data theft and bot attacks. Backed by Cloudflare’s global Anycast network of data centers in over 180 cities across 80 countries, IBM Cloud Internet Services also optimizes web applications, enhances the mobile user experience and ensures global responsiveness and availability of Internet facing applications.

CIS is available in two plan levels, Standard and Enterprise. The Standard plan offers DDoS protection, a web application firewall, global load balancing, DNSSEC and PCI compliance. It’s designed for small and medium sized businesses that require security and performance for a handful of domains. You can sign up directly through the IBM Cloud interface.

CIS Enterprise is the right solution for larger companies who want to manage regulatory compliance and scale across their web properties. In addition to the features in the Standard plan, Enterprise also includes log data, rate limiting, custom WAF rules and log data and smart routing.
