HOUSTON, TEXAS – Through the opening of a new IDC (data center) in Nuremberg, Cloudbric will be extending its website security and WAF service to Germany and Central Europe in a strategic partnership with Trendhosting, a major player in the hosting sector in the region.

While the repercussions of recent cyberattacks are felt across European countries, many businesses either lack the time, personnel, or resources to effectively take actions to prevent cybersecurity incidents from occurring. In Germany, the digital association Bitkom reported that close to 70% of companies were subject to cybercrimes such as data theft over the past two years. This has propelled the need for an accessible, reliable, preventive security solution.


Among the current cybersecurity offerings in the market, WAFs offer the necessary protection that companies need to thwart common cyberattacks and protect against the theft of data. The partnership between Cloudbric and Trendhosting will connect German users to Cloudbric and to those in Central Europe, allowing for more convenient and affordable access to Cloudbric’s website security services, including its award-winning WAF for websites.

Cyber threats are a huge concern for online businesses, so organizations specifically look for security solutions with the ability and effectiveness to combat modern threats, and in Central Europe these solutions will be critical in combating cybercrime. Cloudbric’s advanced technology, more specifically its unique logic-based detection engine, generates one of the lowest false positives in the industry.

TJ Jung, VP of Product & Technology, said, “We share the same commitment with our partners in providing the highest quality of service, ensuring that website security is accessible to all. For this reason, in a region as large and as varied as Europe, we’ve opened new doors through partnerships to extend our WAF service to a greater consumer base. Companies are required to incorporate measures for ensuring information is handled in a confidential manner and protected from cyberattacks. We are glad that Cloudbric can be of great help.”

Mustafa Beciragic, CTO of Trendhosting, stated, “We like how Cloudbric’s firewall engine focuses on performance and commits to low false positive rates. This matched our main objective to deliver a high performance platform to our customers, especially during this time of rising security requirements.”

The IDC in Nuremberg marks the launch of Cloudbric’s fourth data center on the European continent. Cloudbric is anticipating to open additional IDCs across Europe and other regions within the next year.
