LONDON, May 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- NSFOCUS, a global provider of solutions and services for distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) mitigation, today announced it has been named by Gartner, the world's leading IT research and advisory firm, as the sample vendor in its IT Market Clock for Infrastructure Protection, 2013 report published on April 19, 2013. NSFOCUS provides enterprise-level, carrier-grade solutions and services for DDoS mitigation, Web security and enterprise-level network security.
The report found that "damage from DDoS attacks continued to grow in 2012, with a mixture of low-scale and large-scale attacks. New forms of resource starvation attacks were added to the existing mix of volumetric attacks, requiring DDoS protection products and services to adapt. Gartner saw strong growth in demand for DDoS protection in 2012."
Traditional anti-DDoS defense solutions are inadequate in fending off the more devastating and sophisticated DDoS threats; instead, a cloud-based, multi-layered anti-DDoS solution will be needed. This can consist of a mid-range Anti-DDoS System (ADS), deployed at an enterprise to fend off small or application-layered attacks, or a high-end ADS model, deployed at a Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) as a cleaning center to handle attacks of higher performance and capacity. In addition, DDoS mitigation experts can provide around-the-clock support through a cloud-based network security operation center for quick response and support. The best anti-DDoS solution is designed to not only provide real-time, professional DDoS mitigation services, but also keep critical businesses running, maintaining customer satisfaction and generating additional new revenue streams for hosting providers who can offer clients added protection.
Founded in 2000, NSFOCUS Information Technology Co., Ltd provides enterprise-level, carrier-grade solutions and services for distributed denial of service (DDoS) mitigation, Web security and enterprise-level network security. With more than 10 years of experience in DDoS research and development and mitigation, NSFOCUS has helped customers around the world maintain high levels of Internet security, website uptime and business operations to ensure that their online systems remain available.
