-- Mix of solutions help company fight off hundreds of attacks for customers
SANTA CLARA, California, Sept. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- NSFOCUS, Inc. (NSFOCUS), a global provider of distributed denial of service (DDoS) mitigation solutions and services, today announced that Los Angeles-based Web hosting provider Psychz Networks has improved its customers' website uptime and lowered service disruptions with the company's DDoS detection and mitigation solutions. Since implementing the NSFOCUS anti-DDoS system (ADS), network traffic analyst (NTA) and ADS-M management platform, Psychz Networks can offer its customers the peace of mind that their websites have a battle-tested protection plan in place against DDoS attacks.
DDoS attacks are rising in frequency and complexity, requiring stronger security for those whose livelihoods are dependent on website uptime. ADS is a hardware appliance that intelligently recognizes potential DDoS attacks, actively works to mitigate attack traffic in real-time, and provides user-friendly reporting and management. Based on network environments and customer requirements, the ADS appliance can be used with the NTA and ADS-M to protect complicated networks for ISPs and large IDCs on multiple levels.
"After an easy deployment of the NSFOCUS ADS products, our clients have gone out of their way to share with us their enthusiasm for the level of security we're able to provide. As a growing Web hosting provider, the ability to offer DDoS mitigation services effectively allows us to command a larger market share," said George Becerra, director of business development at Psychz Networks. "The flexibility of the ADS hardware has allowed us to meet our specific needs by easily handling the hundreds of attacks we typically see monthly, ranging from one gigabit to 10 gigabits and beyond. The 24/7 availability of a DDoS expert to answer our questions - even if unrelated to a specific attack - has gone a long way in helping us understand the nature of these attacks so we can offer better protection to our clients."
DDoS attack methodologies are constantly evolving, requiring a deeper level of security training than most Web hosting providers have in-house if they expect to protect their most valuable asset: customers' websites. DDoS attacks can occur at any time and are often undetectable until it's too late. The key to effective DDoS mitigation is the ability to identify and isolate the attack the moment it begins so that the malicious behavior can be blocked from reaching its intended destination, while allowing legitimate user traffic to continue getting through.
"Web hosting providers must take steps to ensure they can reliably deliver on service level agreements, most notably site uptime," says Frank Ip, vice president of U.S. operations NSFOCUS. "By implementing ADS as part of its overall security strategy, Psychz Networks is demonstrating to its customers how seriously it takes these pervasive threats."
