Trello Chooses Incapsula to Safeguard Its Network of Five Million Application Users

Incapsula's DDoS Protection Defends Against the Latest Threats; Global CDN Improves Transaction Times

REDWOOD SHORES, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 4, 2014) - Incapsula, the cloud-based website security and performance service, today announced that Trello, a project management application provider, has implemented Incapsula's application-aware global CDN platform to secure its network of five million users. As an application provider, Trello's business operations require a secure and agile network to serve its user base, but concerns about the increasing threat of malicious web traffic led Trello to implement Incapsula's best-in-class DDoS Protection Service. Since onboarding Incapsula, Trello has never witnessed an interruption of service due to a DDoS attack on its network. 

"At its peak, our website sees around 2,500 transactions per second from our five million users. We needed a solution that would distinguish and mitigate any malicious traffic without slowing the transaction speed from our legitimate users," said Sven Henderson, technical associate and chief of operations. "Incapsula provides us with a solution that not only secures our network from DDoS attacks, but that has also improved our transaction times by 40 percent."

Trello's powerful collaboration tool offers businesses a simple and efficient method of project management from any device. Any delay or disruption of service could lead to loss of users, reputation, and revenue. Combining a robust network backbone and industry-acclaimed traffic inspection solutions, Incapsula provides Trello with comprehensive protection against all application, infrastructure, and DNS DDoS attacks.

"Website and cloud application performance are business-critical to organizations that operate online, and the increase in sophistication and frequency of DDoS attacks show no signs of slowing, especially in the SaaS market," said Marc Gaffan, co-founder of Incapsula. "Trello required a solution that provided world-class security against the latest and greatest website security vulnerabilities, along with an acceleration service that could significantly improve their overall performance. We were able to provide this with impressive results."
