IBM’s Cloud Internet Services offering, powered by Cloudflare, enables IBM Cloud customers to easily purchase and configure mission-critical web performance and security solutions. These solutions solve critical security problems faced by enterprises, including DDoS mitigation, bot protection, and data theft protection as well as performance challenges, including ensuring application availability and accelerating Internet applications and mobile experiences.

Enterprises need a cloud and edge security strategy that provides high levels of web application protection without sacrificing performance and reliability. By partnering with Cloudflare, IBM is providing a one-stop shop for security and performance capabilities (including core DDoS, WAF, DNS, CDN, and related solutions) designed to protect public-facing web content and applications on the IBM Cloud.

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.
