What is Gladius?
Decentralized, DDoS Mitigation, CDN, and WAF Services
We cover all the bases
Network administrators love Gladius’s myriad deployment options
As a software solution, Gladius can deploy on bare metal, VM’s, or containers in nearly any environment. Employing modular design, pool operators have maximum flexibility when designing and deploying their network nodes. Gladius uses blockchain technology to fortify authentication and authorization of both nodes and content.
While Gladius works like a traditional CDN or WAF solution, network operators are afforded great control
Why the world needs another CDN/WAF/DDoS solution…
Current solutions are centralized and therefore brittle
Centralized solutions leverage limited bandwidth and are by nature brittle and costly. Decentralized network pooling solutions end this problem by overwhelming any DDoS attack.
Pool operators can pay everyday users for their bandwidth, lowering overhead, and spreading the requirement of serving up content across a large pool of trustless nodes.
DDoS protection is overpriced
DDoS protection is overpriced because the solutions are poorly engineered. Gladius’s pooling model creates a massive number of edge nodes that by design efficiently and inexpensively mitigate attacks. No more costly hardware or expensive contracts from cloud DDoS providers are needed.
WAF is too difficult to maintain in the cloud
WAF customers are offered all or nothing options. With Gladius, websites are given direct control which allows them to implement new rules that meet their specific application requirements.
Excess capacity is wasted
The vast majority of the world’s bandwidth is paid for yet never used. Imagine a world where unused bandwidth is put to use, protecting websites from DDoS attacks while providing Layer 7 protections. Gladius makes this possible.
Blockchain enables nodes in a deployment to trustlessly verify the origin of any message in the network. Transaction details are now stored on an open ledger using smart contracts enabling a wide array of possibilities. Basically a simplified and verifiable accounting solution, potentially across multiple parties. In this case, CDN and DDoS mitigation
