Cybrary, a growing community that brings together people, companies, and training to revolutionize the cyber security educational experience, was facing a significant challenge. Their legacy web application firewall (WAF) was failing to provide complete attack coverage and usability across its APIs and web properties. With a wide range of pages and training content to protect, Cybrary’s two-person infrastructure team was struggling with issues that their legacy WAF could not address. The legacy WAF was proving extremely difficult to configure and debug without investing significant time and resources. It also provided incomplete attack coverage and blocked valid requests, with no real-time visibility, alerting, or a functional dashboard to monitor activity over time. As security experts, Cybrary needed to maintain their brand identity and ensure their security practice was cutting-edge.
About The Customer
Cybrary is a rapidly growing community that brings together individuals, companies, and training to revolutionize the cyber security educational experience. They offer a wide range of pages and training content that needs to be protected from various attacks across its APIs and web properties. The company has a two-person infrastructure team that was previously struggling with a legacy WAF that was difficult to configure and debug, provided incomplete attack coverage, and lacked real-time visibility and alerting. As a company of security experts, Cybrary is committed to maintaining their brand identity and ensuring their security practice is cutting-edge.
Cybrary was in search of a modern, feature-rich WAF solution that could be easily configured, block attacks, natively work within Kubernetes containers, and provide real-time alerting without incurring heavy maintenance investment. They chose to replace their legacy WAF with Fastly’s Next-Gen WAF after a successful two-week pilot. The pilot evaluated the ease of use, performance, and availability of features required by the infrastructure team, including Slack integration, unified dashboard, all working seamlessly with Kubernetes. After a five-minute installation, Fastly’s Next-Gen WAF provided immediate time to value during the pilot. Fastly’s Next-Gen WAF blocks attacks that Cybrary’s legacy WAF missed and provides the security team with comprehensive protection capabilities. Using customizable rules, users can quickly define, monitor, and take action on any web application or API transaction without extensive tuning. Additionally, Cybrary can protect their WordPress site without using any additional plugins.

Digital Transformation of Atlanta Grout & Tile: An IoT Case Study
Atlanta Grout & Tile, a Tile, Stone & Grout restoration company based in Woodstock, Georgia, was facing challenges with its traditional business model. Despite steady growth over the years, the company was falling behind the web revolution and missing out on the opportunity to tap into a new consumer base. They were using independent software from different vendors for each of their department information and workforce management. This resulted in a lot of manual work on excel and the need to export/import data between different systems. This not only increased overhead costs but also slowed down their response to clients. The company also had to prepare numerous reports manually and lacked access to customer trends for effective business decision-making.

Revolutionizing Construction Equipment Rental: A Case Study on ProsRent and ENO8
ProsRent, a startup that won the 'Best Financial Opportunity' and 'Best Pitch' at CodeLaunch 2016, aimed to revolutionize the way construction professionals source and rent heavy equipment. In the construction industry, project managers and contractors typically rent heavy equipment from supply companies. However, predicting inventory can be challenging, and finding the required equipment at the right time and place can be a hassle. If the preferred vendor doesn't have the required equipment, it results in wasted time and money in searching for it, often leading to higher costs due to non-preferred rates and increased delivery costs if the vendor is located far from the job site. Suppliers, on the other hand, desired access to a wider base of trusted renters that they didn't have to vet themselves and wanted to offer dynamic rental pricing based on demand and availability in their market. ProsRent's challenge was to produce a minimum viable product that was fast and first to market but also strong enough to engender loyalty and repeat business from the target market.
