Three more global banks are also in the process of having advanced proof-of-concept (PoC) discussions. HUB Security estimates that it will soon finalize additional contracts worth millions of Euros in sales in 2022.

The purpose of D.Storm is to identify vulnerabilities and exploits in an organization's infrastructure by replicating real-world attack methods using fully automated tools. The platform enables customers to run dozens of DDoS attack methods, including volumetric, infrastructure, and application attacks. With the aid of tens of thousands of attack bots that spread across different countries and continents, D.Storm is fully capable of imitating real browsers, which simulates the challenge of distinguishing between fake and legitimate users.

The platform collects data from the bot attacks in real-time and presents it to the user for in-depth analysis. This approach allows customers to substantially minimize their attack surface and prepare measures to withstand potential DDoS attacks on their strategic and sensitive assets. HUB Security estimates that sales of the solution are expected to have a material effect on its activities in 2022.
