We are the next generation of internet security. Together we are building innovative protection solutions that can adapt to the ever-changing threat landscape of the internet.
Who We Are
Businesses, developers, and individuals use Gladius to protect, manage, and contribute to fighting DDoS Attacks.
Gladius is a cybersecurity company dedicated to ending Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) attacks. The Gladius DDoS software platform aggregates massive amounts of unused bandwidth from corporations and individuals, making that bandwidth instantly available to any participating company to easily, inexpensively, and effectively defend against inbound DDoS attacks.
Why we built Gladius
We're here to shake things up...
Before Gladius, we stumbled upon a harsh reality. It’s impossible to build a company and keep it safe from the darkest corners of the Internet without spending hundreds of thousands of dollars. And it’s just wrong that the cost of protection can exceed the potential breach consequence itself. We knew that the traditional way of fighting DDOS was dated and often didn’t work. We are leveling the playing field by creating a distributed solution to address a distributed problem.
Gladius is headquartered in Washington DC, with another location in New York.

Meet the team
Gladius Network, LLC.
Gladius has been focused on regulatory compliance since its founding. Over the course of 2018, Gladius chose to eliminate the regulatory risk it faced as a result of its 2017 Initial Coin Offering (ICO). Accordingly, the company approached the SEC in the summer of 2018 and self-reported its concerns.
Two weeks ago, Gladius became the first Blockchain company to self-report and enter into an Order with the SEC to register its token as a security. And, on the basis of its collaboration with the SEC and in contrast to other ICO-related SEC settlements, Gladius is paying no monetary penalties. The text of Gladius’s Order of Settlement with the SEC, which spells out the terms of the agreement and Gladius’s obligations and rights pursuant to that agreement, can be found here.
This agreement allows Gladius to focus on its product, which leverages the power of blockchain technology to stop distributed denial of service attacks.
This agreement provides a path that other blockchain-based companies can follow. This move also serves to validate and legitimize the blockchain industry as it moves to mainstream adoption within a regulated framework.
WHENThis product is currently expected to be made available for enterprise use this year.
