Action description

Spreadshirt was founded in Leipzig in 2002 and is now one of the world's leading e-commerce platforms for on-demand printing of clothing and accessories. With the help of Spreadshirt, sellers can successfully offer their own designs in thousands of shops and on their own marketplace. With its ambitious goal of “printing ideas”, Spreadshirt brings independent designers together with customers and companies looking for personalized items.

The Spread Group is a rapidly growing company that needs to bring new products to market quickly and unbureaucratically. Their recipe for success is based on a powerful platform that combines product design, marketing, sales, production, payment processing, shipping and customer service.

Fastly’s CDN had already been successfully in use at Spread Group for some time, so the next step for the company was acquiring Fastly's Next-Gen Web Application Firewall (WAF). Spread Group needed a robust WAF that not only monitored attacks but blocked them entirely. The organisation required a flexible security solution that could seamlessly integrate into their constantly evolving platform, giving them more time to modernise existing systems.

In this discussion, you will learn from Mathias Dobert, Principal Engineer and Technical Lead of the Platform Web Security team at Spreadshirt, why Fastly's Next-Gen WAF offers a more sophisticated approach to countering threats than the competition, blocking only malicious requests and no business-critical functions.

Dobert will explain how Spread Group can now respond to automated tools, bots, DDoS, XSS and SQLi attacks, giving developer teams the ability to see and ensure the security of the supply chain and its software dependencies.
