Prolexic Technologies Inc. Releases New Video That Documents and Visualizes How it Mitigated a Sustained 160 Gbps, 120 Million Packet-Per-Second Attack
Apr 26 13
Prolexic Technologies Inc. announced that it has released a new video that documents and visualizes how it mitigated a sustained 160 Gbps, 120 million packet-per-second (pps) attack. The DDoS attack occurred earlier this month and was directed against one of Prolexic's enterprise clients. The three-minute, narrated video, entitled 'Prolexic in Action', shows the many different points in the cloud-based infrastructure where Prolexic blocks malicious DDoS attack traffic. Viewers can see malicious traffic routed through Prolexic's scrubbing centers and sorted by attack type – infrastructure (Layer 3 and 4) or application (Layer 7) attacks. The video then shows how the two different attack types are mitigated with blocking signatures through automated mitigation gear and in real-time by Prolexic engineers at the company's 24/7 Security Operations Center. For each attack type, the video shows the destination IP addresses and ports that are targeted how that attack type was blocked.
Betstar Chooses Prolexic's Distributed Denial of Service Mitigation Services
Apr 9 13
Prolexic announced that Betstar has engaged Prolexic to provide DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) protection and mitigation services. Betstar offers Internet betting on Australian and international sports and racing. Recently, cyber attackers launched a series of DDoS attacks against online betting companies at the height of the Australian horse racing season known as Spring Carnival. Spring Carnival is the busiest and most profitable time for online betting companies in Australia and any revenue losses due to a website outage would be financially disastrous. At the beginning of Spring Carnival, Betstar experienced a 30-minute site outage due to a DDoS attack on one of its competitors with whom it shares infrastructure in a colocation data center. The high-volume Layer 3 DDoS attack peaked at 10 Gbps and crippled the data center, which led to an eight-hour site outage for Betstar's competitor, and brief downtime for Betstar due to collateral damage. Two other online betting companies came under DDoS attack during the same weekend. The continued threat of DDoS attacks against the online betting industry led Betstar to seek DDoS mitigation services from Prolexic. With the racing season just getting underway, it was especially urgent that Betstar quickly deploy the Prolexic PLXproxy DDoS mitigation solution. Prolexic and Betstar worked over a weekend to ensure a fast deployment. Within three days from signed contract, the Prolexic solution was up and running, well in time to ensure 24/7 uptime for online Betstar customers betting on the Melbourne Cup, Australia's equivalent to the Kentucky Derby, and other Spring Carnival races.
