Challenges & Solutions


  • Distributed and volumetric attacks cannot be handled by legacy security solutions
  • Low and slow ramping application-layer attacks cannot be mitigated by legacy DDoS solutions
  • Implementing zero-trust and API-level security requires significant developer work
  • TLS + TCP optimizations and CDNs are insufficient to deliver immersive web apps


  • Volterra’s PoPs + global private backbone can mitigate massive attacks at the source
  • Volterra’s security software uses algorithms and machine learning to handle sophisticated and camouflaged attacks
  • Automate the discovery of APIs and generation of policy through the AI/ML built into VoltMesh
  • Volterra’s global network delivers K8s-based microservices and JavaScript v8
