Frequently Asked Questions

Have a question? We have answers! Our FAQ contains some of the most common questions about Gladius.

What is Gladius?

Gladius is next step in the evolution of DDoS Mitigation and Content Delivery networks.

Businesses, developers, and individuals use Gladius to protect, manage, and contribute to content delivery and fighting DDoS Attacks.

Gladius is the decentralized solution to protect against DDoS attacks by allowing individuals to join geographically relevant protection groups and contribute to website security and load speeds. With an easy to use interface as well as powerful insight tools, Gladius enables anyone to protect and accelerate their web application.

Why is Gladius needed?

We believe Gladius fills a crucial gap in the current CDN and DDoS market. Currently web application owners are given a couple choices.

One is to use a standard cloud service. While these services are good, they are pricey and limited to their infrastructure. Even basic features can be expensive for most website owners.

Another is to build a CDN on their own infrastructure. These setups are complicated, expensive ,and are static, so the content can only live where these devices live. Moving closer to your customer can be expensive and hard to pull off.

And an even worse option is to forgo any CDN or DDoS protection altogether. This unfortunately seems to be a default options for many people.

We believe Gladius software enables customers of all kinds, from large enterprises to small businesses with very small web footprints, to benefit from advanced CDN technology AND get WAF and DDoS protection without breaking the budget. On top of that, the software is highly customizable and can live anywhere. We think Gladius can truly make the internet better.

Who can use Gladius?

There are many different people we cater to. If you’re a website/web app you can use us to protect and accelerate your site. If you’re an ordinary person with a computer and internet connection you can sell your spare bandwidth to us. If you’re technically savvy and want to start a business you can create your own Protection Pool and become part of our marketplace.
