Hosting Provider Relies on NSFOCUS Anti-DDoS Solution to Protect its Brand and its Customers

MIAMI BEACH, Fla., June 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- (HostingCon 2014, Miami Beach Convention Center, Booth #513) – NSFOCUS, Inc., a global provider of distributed denial of service (DDoS) mitigation solutions and services, today announced that Psychz Networks, a web hosting provider, is expanding its work with NSFOCUS to protect customers from DDoS attacks.

NEWS FACTS:

  • DDoS attacks on the rise – DDoS represents a direct threat to carriers, service providers, data centers and enterprises. According to the NSFOCUS DDoS Threat Report 2013, attacks are rising in frequency and complexity, forcing hosting providers to implement stronger security measures to mitigate against the continuous onslaught.
  • Protecting customer data and brand reputation – DDoS mitigation protects customer assets and service provider brand reputation. Implementing the NSFOCUS Anti-DDoS system (ADS), Network Traffic Analyzer (NTA) and ADS-M management platform allows Psychz Networks to focus on what it does best, manage websites for its customers.
  • Certified intelligent hardware appliance defends against attacks in real time – ADS is a hardware appliance that intelligently detects and mitigates potential DDoS attacks in real-time and provides user-friendly reporting and management. The NSFOCUS Anti- DDoS solution enables service providers to deliver an additional hundreds of Gbps of DDoS mitigation capacity to defend against volumetric DDoS attacks. NSFOCUS security solutions are industry compliant, certified by Veracode.
  • Protects against Layer 7 attacks, with no latency – To supplement the inadequacy of the traditional firewall/IPS, ADS protects important information systems against Layer 7 attacks by not only detecting current complicated DDoS attacks, but also mitigating the attack traffic without affecting normal service traffic flow.

SUPPORTING QUOTES:
William Lu, President and CEO, Psychz Networks, said:
"Every hosting provider today has issues with the rising frequency and severity of DDoS attacks. When we began searching for a DDoS mitigation solution, we were particularly interested in protecting our customers from Layer 7 attacks. NSFOCUS competitors were more expensive and less responsive to our needs. We couldn't be more pleased with the service we have received from the NSFOCUS team and are excited to include its ADS system in our new data center.

Terence Chong, Solutions Architect, NSFOCUS, said:
"Web hosting providers today need to be more diligent than ever. In fact, DDoS attack methodologies continue to evolve at such high rates that navigating the waters requires them to have a deeper level of security training than most providers have in-house. By implementing our solutions at both facilities, Psychz Networks is able to offer its customers a battle-tested protection plan, seamlessly and easily. We look forward to continuing our relationship as Psychz expands its services across the nation."
