(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – NSFOCUS, Inc., a global provider of solutions for distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) detection and mitigation, today announced its MitigationACT Solution Series to help small- to medium-sized hosting providers overcome implementation barriers related to DDoS mitigation. The MitigationACT Solution Series combines equipment, training and ongoing consultation to offer hosting providers a turnkey solution to deliver comprehensive in-house DDoS protection for their customers.
To help hosting providers establish stronger and more cost-effective anti-DDoS solutions, the MitigationACT Solution Series includes NSFOCUS’ Anti-DDoS System (ADS) 4020 series product, which can mitigate attacks of up to 10 Gbps, and NSFOCUS’ Managed Security Service (MSS), which complements the ADS4020 series with dedicated monitoring from NSFOCUS’ cloud-based network security operation centers around the world with 24/7 access to a DDoS expert, and ongoing support and training. Hosting providers’ on-premise NSFOCUS equipment is augmented with additional mitigation capacity via NSFOCUS’ scrubbing centers in North America.
“As our NSFOCUS Mid-Year DDoS Threat Report 2013 shows, DDoS attacks are more common and complex than ever before, which means that businesses of all sizes are at risk. DDoS protection is now a matter of customer retention and a key differentiation strategy for hosting providers. Oftentimes, small- to medium-sized hosting providers turn to security service providers because they think their options are limited, and they wind up paying too much for their needs,” said Frank Ip, vice president of U.S. Operations for NSFOCUS. “We identified a gap in the market that the MitigationACT Solution Series bridges by offering organizations a scalable, effective and economical way to protect against DDoS attacks.”
The MitigationACT Solution Series complements NSFOCUS’ three-tiered anti-DDoS model, helping customers better understand DDoS mechanics and mitigation strategies at all levels. The first tier protects end-users in real time from network- and application-layer attacks that are small in size, short in duration and frequent in occurrence through the deployment of the NSFOCUS ADS2000 and ADS4020 series hardware solutions. The second tier offers around-the-clock DDoS protection for service providers through the NSFOCUS ADS6020 hardware and MSS offering, and the third tier delivers end-to-end protection via NSFOCUS’ scrubbing centers in North America as the final safety net. These three tiers ensure that NSFOCUS clients are protected against current and future threats.
