Patent success for Anti-DDoS Service

Prolexic Technologies : 04 February, 2009  (New Product)
Prolexic celebrates patent award for its detection and mitigation system for protection against distributed denial of service attacks
Prolexic Technologies has been granted a patent for its unique DDoS detection and mitigation methods. This is the only DDoS related patent ever to have been granted to a security-as-a-service organisation.

Prolexic's patented "in the cloud" network protection services are based around active DDoS mitigation on a globally distributed platform designed to absorb DDoS attacks near their source, long before they reach their target. The company's network security experts update its arsenal through rigorous and creative research and development, providing the only protection service capable of responding to truly next-generation attacks.

Paul Sop, Chief Technology Officer, Prolexic said: "Determined cyber criminals aren't resting. They're continually evolving sophisticated and powerful techniques and can launch truly devastating attacks. These can only be stopped by security and networking experts employing even more sophisticated and powerful capabilities.

"Prolexic's key to mitigating network attacks is our systems adaptability to simultaneously mitigate a huge variety of attacks including huge - 100 Gigabit+ and subtle - application attacks. We consider developing our intellectual property to be a strategic priority, and the ongoing development of new technologies is critical in a world of ever evolving cyber-threats. This patent is a great endorsement of our continued investment in R&D.'

DDoS represents one of the greatest threats to all organisations with a significant online component. In recent times it has been used as a terrorist tool with state web sites targeted, as well as the anti-competitive and extortion-led attacks against businesses. Prolexic's unique service solutions allow its customers to be fully protected from cyber attacks without affecting normal day-to-day Internet traffic flow. The company has further patent applications pending.
