To support key global institutions in responding to this developing threat, we are offering free service—for at least the next 90 days—to qualifying organizations that join our platform. For institutions serving crisis communications needs, we are providing our enterprise-ready WebOps platform to help ensure they can deliver information to the public without worrying about traffic, cost, or site availability during this period.
What You Can Do
With a recent uptick in security attacks on global websites, including critical enterprise sites, we recommend you take a moment to secure your site with two-factor authentication for added security.
With an increased reliance on the web to communicate with customers, students, and constituents of all kinds, now is the time to check your site’s ability to respond to dramatic increases in traffic. See our guide to load testing with Blazemeter.
Now, more than ever, it’s important to communicate with your visitors. To help ensure your emails don’t get flagged as spam, we encourage you to use a service provider like SendGrid. See our guide to using SendGrid to deliver email.
