Movember is a non-profit organization focused on making an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health. Since 2003, the charity has connected more than 5 million donors to the Movember initiatives and has funded more than 1,200 men’s health projects around the world.
Why Movember Chose Signal Sciences’ WPP Solution
Every year, the Movember Foundation receives its highest amount of traffic in the month of November. In 2016, the entire Movember Foundation shifted to a cloud environment in order to better serve their donors and campaign participants, organizational initiatives and streamline processes.
The Challenges That Movember Experienced
While transitioning to a cloud environment, the Movember team found that conventional WAF solutions caused two significant challenges:
- The hardware WAF solutions Movember attempted to implement couldn’t scale with Movember’s peak traffic periods and performance without requiring constant tuning and intervention from their team.
- Other WAF implementations in the cloud environment were cumbersome, convoluted, and took valuable time and money away from their security resources.
The Movember Foundation chose Signal Sciences and deployed it to their development environment within 48 hours of starting the proof of concept process. The rapid implementation gave them the ability to find security visibility and protection value immediately.
Signal Sciences’ solution provided the following key benefits for Movember:
- Ease of implementation.
- Advanced security visibility and transparent reporting.
- Unrestricted scalability.
Signal Sciences has helped the Movember team move away from onerous legacy WAF solutions, providing them with a simpler security solution that works in modern application deployment models at flexible scale requirements. The Movember Foundation now leverages Signal Sciences data to help with long term planning to mitigate risk and keep their millions of donors and men’s health initiatives secure.Read Full Case Study
