|Claranet, one of Europe's largest Managed Services Provider (MSP) has announced a partnership with Prolexic Technologies to provide its clients with the highest level of protection against Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks.|
Gaming and payment solution providers have typically been prime targets for web attacks.
Claranet is adding to its existing DDoS mitigation with Prolexic's Clean Pipe solution. The solution responds in real time to DDoS attacks, impeding them at multiple layers and enabling legitimate traffic to continue to reach its destination.
Other DDoS mitigation solutions - in particular hardware devices - are unable to withstand the rapidly increasing magnitude of today's attacks.
Marino Zini, Claranet Director of Managed Services said, 'DDoS is an escalating problem and we have a responsibility to provide our customers with clean, consistent bandwidth.'
Gus Cunningham, UK MD, Prolexic said, 'With online gaming businesses at particular risk and the increasing ferocity of attacks we have been seeing, it is essential that ISPs look at a dynamic solution that can cope with large and persistent attacks.'
