About Red Button

Red Button is a boutique shop of security experts offering end-to-end DDoS protection services to organizations worldwide.

Leveraging our extensive, decade-long DDoS expertise, we offer DDoS testing, DDoS hardening, training, and incident response services to private and public companies in multiple industries. Our customers include commercial and federal banks in Europe, Asia, South, and Central America, the five largest banks in Israel, online trading and payment services, Internet and ISP providers, and large international gaming companies.

Starting in 2010, our team successfully mitigated hundreds of DDoS attacks, including some of the most massive, sophisticated attacks like OpWallStreet, OpIsrael, and the allegedly state-sponsored OpAbabil. We regularly handle attacks of over 100 Gbps and in 2020 we mitigated one of the largest volumetric attacks of over 1.2 Tbps. In recent years, we gained extensive experience with ransom DDoS attacks on gambling companies.

On a yearly basis, our security experts handle 20-30 global Incident Response incidents, which allows us to offer our customers the most up-to-date insights on DDoS attack trends and the best prevention practices.
