IntruGuard Announces on Demand DDos Mitigation Solution

Sunnyvale, CA, January 20, 2008 --( IntruGuard Devices, Inc., the leading DDoS solution provider, today announced release of a compelling solution for large Internet Data Centers that host thousands of websites.

Today’s announcement includes a solution brief that uses IntruGuard’s leading IG200/2000 DDoS mitigation appliances in a way that Internet Data Centers can bring them in-line with attack traffic on-demand and only during attack. The new solution will be a driver for safer and trust-worthy data centers, lowering DDoS mitigation costs.

“Most e-commerce, e-tailers, social networking and web 2.0 sites depend on their Internet Data Center to provide DDoS mitigation while they focus on their core business,” said Hemant Jain, Co-founder and CTO of IntruGuard. “In the recent times, DDoS attacks have grown due to proliferation of BotNets and open source availability of attack tools. Our solution provides a sure-fire way to protect against such threats and meet customer expectation.”

How On-Demand DDoS Mitigation Solution Works

During normal periods, the data center traffic flows through existing infrastructure. When a customer’s website gets attacked, the traffic to that customer is diverted via an IntruGuard appliance. The appliance with its DDoS mitigation capability is able to filter the attack traffic and provide a clean pipe downstream. With its 2 Gbps rated throughput under attack, the appliance can withstand attacks while filtering the traffic.
