Prolexic Sponsors Ovum White Paper: "Delivering Effective DDoS Protection"

- Analyst offers 10 criteria for evaluating DDoS protection solutions

FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida, Jan. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Prolexic Technologies, the global leader in Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection services, today announced that UK industry analyst firm OVUM has published a white paper sponsored by Prolexic. A complimentary copy of "Delivering Effective DDoS Protection," authored by OVUM Principal Analyst, Security, Andrew Kellett, can be downloaded at prolexic.com/ddos-protection.

In the white paper, Kellett states, "DDoS security requirements demand a multi-layered, all-inclusive approach to DDoS protection. Mitigation must address the more sophisticated, complex, and finely tuned elements of an attack, while also maintaining the capacity to deal with the blunt instrument and associated complications of volumetric attacks. It must also address newer and emerging threats if the DDoS protection industry is to remain relevant to all sectors of business."

Kellett notes that not all security solutions are capable of providing the required level of DDoS protection. He recommends that organizations evaluate DDoS mitigation providers against 10 enterprise criteria:

  1. Depth of experience
  2. Provision of dedicated mitigation network capacity
  3. Proven ability and global resources to mitigate the Internet's largest and most complex attacks
  4. Innovation in DDoS mitigation technology
  5. Human expertise on the front lines of DDoS
  6. Speed to mitigation and service level agreement (SLA) guarantees
  7. Mitigation at the SSL layer
  8. Flexibility of service delivery
  9. Threat intelligence
  10. Real-time network visibility

"With many different types of DDoS mitigation providers offering different levels of protection, it's not easy for enterprises to differentiate services," said Stuart Scholly, president at Prolexic. "We hope this white paper will help organizations cut through the hype and choose the best provider and level of DDoS defense for their security requirements."

A complimentary copy of "Delivering Effective DDS Protection" can be downloaded for a limited time at prolexic.com/ddos-protection.
