Prolexic Technologies Announces Release of New Infographic to Illustrate Common DDoS Attack and Defense Strategies
Nov 6 13
Prolexic Technologies announced it has released a new infographic that illustrates common DDoS attack and defense strategies. The infographic shows the typical motivations behind DDoS attacks, how perpetrators select their target, identify weaknesses, and use tools to launch their attack. It also contrasts Prolexic's approach to DDoS defense with those of Internet Service Providers (ISPs), telcos, and Content Delivery Networks (CDNs). According to its latest third quarter of 2013 Global DDoS Attack Report, DDoS activity around the world remains high and shows no sign of declining. Third quarter of 2013 set a record for the number of attacks directed against its global client base. Compared to third quarter of 2012, the total number of attacks increased 58%. The total number of infrastructure attacks increased 48%, while the total number of application attacks (Layer 7) increased by 101% compared to one year ago.
Prolexic Protects OnCourse Systems for Education and its SaaS Applications against DDoS Attacks
Oct 10 13
Prolexic announced that OnCourse Systems for Education has selected its PLXproxy DDoS mitigation service. OnCourse applications are used by schools and school districts in 40 U.S. states, and its website has 10,000 of visitors daily. OnCourse engaged Prolexic after three denial of service attacks earlier this year. Approximately four hours of downtime resulted from each attack, affecting the availability of attendance tracking, grading, student information, discipline tracking, and other SaaS applications. After two DDoS mitigation service providers failed to prevent and stop these attacks, the company engaged Prolexic's emergency DDoS mitigation service. The cyber attackers abandoned their efforts as soon as they detected OnCourse was routing traffic through Prolexic's 1.5 Tbps cloud-based DDoS mitigation platform. OnCourse has not come under a DDoS attack since becoming a Prolexic client. Prior to working with Prolexic, OnCourse had no visibility into the source of the malicious traffic and which attack vectors were being used. Other DDoS mitigation providers could not provide attack forensics, which OnCourse could have used to build a defense against future attacks. Now, as a Prolexic customer, OnCourse has access to deep network analytics and DDoS attack forensics through PLXportal.
