Radware announced "DefensePipe, an integrated and comprehensive solution to help mitigate volumetric DDoS attacks which threaten to saturate a customer’s Internet pipe, or the ‘outside line’ that connects enterprises to the web .. Available to Radware customers that currently deploy an on-premise Attack Mitigation System (AMS), it is a scalable solution that automatically engages once the customer’s AMS detects that pipe saturation is imminent .. The organization’s suspicious Internet traffic is immediately diverted to the DefensePipe cloud based scrubbing center where it is distanced further from the protected network and its scalable resources can mitigate high volume attacks. Once the traffic is “cleaned” it is then sent to the organization and regular operations continue once the attack has ceased."
"Also included is access to Radware’s Emergency Response Team (ERT), a ‘round the clock’ staff of security experts who are knowledgeable and experienced with emerging cyber threats, their detection and mitigation .. integrated reporting system provides information both from the on-premise mitigation and in the cloud mitigation. This enables the customer to perform more efficient forensics, better understand the threats it is facing and to better plan its mitigation strategy for future threats"
Robert Proulx (pictured), president and founder of Xittel Télécommunications said: "Radware’s DefensePipe was a natural fit, as we’re very pleased with their attack mitigation system and its unmatched capability .. The combination of an on-premise AMS and DefensePipe in the cloud provides us with maximum security coverage and the ideal solution to ensure the availability of our customers' business. Furthermore, it allows us to maintain our high SLA with our hosted customers, providing a much greater value for them"
