NSFOCUS to Deliver New Cloud DDoS Mitigation Services for Cloud and Hybrid Operating Models
SANTA CLARA, CA: NSFOCUS International Business (IB), -a provider of anti-DDoS, web security and enterprise-level network security solutions- announces that it will be building its own global cloud-based Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) mitigation services for both cloud and hybrid operating models.
The solution is aimed to increase the security and flexible capabilities of enterprises, managed service providers and Internet service providers. The DDoS solution provides defenses against large sustained attacks and vicious small attacks on enterprises.
NSFOCUS’s anti-DDoS solution uses its multi-stage inspection and analysis process that combines a list of features such as anti-spoofing, protocol behavior analysis, user behavior analysis, specific application protection, dynamic fingerprint identification,bandwidth control and other techniques and tools to mitigate attacks. As the attacks occur, NSFOCUS’s cloud mitigation center immediately re- routes traffic, removes threat and returns it back to the customer’s network, saving time and functionality of the company.
DDoS attacks make networks and system resources unavailable and unusable for companies, damaging both the functionality and reputation of the company. Sometimes a broad-scale and sustained attack can strain the company’s on premise appliances, and without sufficient cloud mitigation services to back up, it may take a considerable time to re-operate.
“Despite the clear need for greater flexibility in warding off DDoS attacks, most enterprises don’t have too many choices in the solutions available,” said Jason Yuan, VP, Product Management, at NSFOCUS IB. “They typically deploy on-premises defenses or rely on cloud-based solutions that can involve dangerous delays. The ideal answer is a hybrid solution that uses both in-house appliances in tandem with cloud-based mitigation services as needed. That’s what we are building through the NSFOCUS IB cloud mitigation centers, and we believe it will represent the perfect choice for organizations of all sizes.”
