While FTW will both improve your visitor’s experience and lower the burden on your web server, the service isn’t just about speed – it’s about security. It’s important to keep up to date with known security threats and be able to respond quickly when new vulnerabilities are found.
A case in point is yesterday’s announcement of “Logjam.” This flaw in the Transport Layer Security protocol that allows an attacker to force a downgrade of the encryption used between a vulnerable server and browser, making any subsequent traffic much easier to decrypt once captured.
In order for the Logjam attacks to be successful, the server must be configured to allow use of the cryptographically-weak DHE_EXPORT cipher suites, which are limited to 512 bits. Our FTW service has consistently supported only the strongest security protocols and ciphers that are supported by modern and recent legacy browsers and therefore does not allow use of the DHE_EXPORT cipher suite or any other “weak” ciphers.
FTW provides the strong security our customers require to protect their assets from attacks like Logjam. All of our customers with websites behind FTW are protected against Logjam and were even before these attacks were announced.
Enhance your website’s speed, resiliency and security with FTW. With FTW there’s nothing for you to maintain, no need to change your code or site structure and simplified billing with just one fee per domain.
