The Challenge
Movember, a leading charity organization focused on men’s health, was facing a significant challenge with their web application firewall (WAF) deployment. They had been using a traditional WAF solution that was rigid and unable to scale during peak traffic periods without constant tuning and intervention from their team. This was particularly problematic as Movember had recently transitioned to a cloud environment to better serve their donors and campaign participants, and to streamline their organizational initiatives. The conventional WAF solutions they tried to implement were not compatible with their modern application infrastructure. After six months of struggling to fit a legacy WAF solution into their system, the solution was never fully implemented, causing frustration and resulting in a solution that had to be discarded and replaced.
About The Customer
Movember is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to changing the face of men’s health. Since its inception in 2003, Movember has funded more than 1,250 men’s health projects around the world. The organization challenges the status quo, shakes up men’s health research, and transforms the way health services reach and support men. In order to better serve their donors and campaign participants, and to streamline their organizational initiatives, Movember transitioned to a cloud environment. However, they faced challenges with their web application firewall (WAF) deployment, which was rigid and unable to scale during peak traffic periods.
The Solution
Fastly provided a solution to Movember's challenge by helping them shift from a rigid traditional WAF deployment to a seamless and secure web application protection solution. This solution was designed to keep up with Movember's rapidly scaling cloud infrastructure. The procurement and deployment turnaround was rapid, completed within 20 days, which allowed Movember to find security visibility and protection value immediately. Fastly’s Next-Gen WAF was deployed into Movember's development environment within 48 hours of starting their proof of concept trial. Fastly’s cloud-based dashboard provided the Movember team with accurate reporting and data across all of their web applications. With Fastly’s Next-Gen WAF, they were able to report on operational data, specifically that Movember web applications were secure and scaling automatically and that the new security measures were not blocking actual traffic with no false positives.
Operational Impact
  • The implementation of Fastly’s Next-Gen WAF resulted in a number of operational benefits for Movember. The solution provided advanced security visibility and transparent reporting, which was a significant improvement over their previous system. The cloud-based dashboard allowed the Movember team to accurately report on operational data, ensuring that their web applications were secure and scaling automatically. Importantly, the new security measures did not block actual traffic, with no false positives reported. The solution also met Movember's requirement for unrestricted scalability, with the ability to dynamically scale and perform as the seasonal traffic increases and decreases.
Quantitative Benefit
  • Fastly’s Next-Gen WAF was deployed into Movember's development environment within 48 hours of starting their proof of concept trial.
  • The entire timeline with Fastly, including evaluation, purchase, and production implementation, was complete within 20 days.
  • Fastly’s cloud-based dashboard provided accurate reporting and data across all of Movember's web applications.
