Sunnyvale, CA, August 08, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- The Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, that took popular microblogging site offline recently, have been growing rapidly with the availability of open source tools and botnets around the world.
The Leading DDoS Solution Provider, IntruGuard today announced there is never a better time than now to protect web properties from DDoS attacks.
IntruGuard is widely deployed by some of the world’s leading web properties to protect their web sites from DDoS and botnet attacks. The appliance from IntruGuard ensures that legitimate users can access the sites while the botnet and DDoS attacks are blocked. Leading social networking websites around the world use IntruGuard to protect themselves. Most of these properties never declare openly that they use these appliances to further protect themselves.
“Most webhosting centers that don’t have our appliances don’t know how to deal with these attacks”, said IntruGuard’s co-founder and CTO, Hemant Jain. “Visibility and control over what’s happening is key to DDoS mitigation. Existing techniques have failed in protecting web properties at installations such as the leading microblogging site. Our appliances provide the ability to monitor and control beyond what’s available in today’s network security infrastructure.” commented Jain.
“Most network security engineers think that DDoS problems have been taken care of since they first appeared in 2000 against popular auction sites and leading search engines. That’s not so. The current generation of attacks is smarter and harder to stop using existing solutions. Most operations managers depend on their webhost to take care of such attacks and the many leading webhosts surprisingly are not geared to handle them. Our appliances have been designed recently and they can withstand the onslaught and filter out such attacks and provide a clean pipe to the subsequent infrastucture such as firewalls, webservers and application servers. IntruGuard’s appliances are easy to deploy and configure and take less than few hours to install in a busy network” added Jain.
IntruGuard’s products are available through resellers and distributors in some countries and directly in countries without resellers.
Website managers can contact IntruGuard for further discussions on security infrastructure.
