Adversor tackles sophisticated DDoS attacks with launch of True Dynamic Mitigation service Thursday 20 October 2011 PDF Print Adversorβs service is built upon decades of experience, proven hardware based on Arbor platforms, and our own patent-pending software algorithms London, UK, October 20th, 2011: Adversor Limited, a provider of robust services that protect against Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, announces the launch of its True Dynamic Mitigationβ’, cloud-based service. Unlike most DDoS protection services, which are based on simple IP filtering, True Dynamic Mitigation uses continuous monitoring of network traffic, early threat detection and a combination of filtering and mitigation techniques. The service can be implemented within minutes through DNS or Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) re-routing, and is dynamically profiled to the nature and size of the DDoS attack, leaving legitimate traffic unaffected. It blocks DDoS attacks close to source and implements over 30 techniques to protect against the largest and most sophisticated attacks. Adversor fixed price services are free of βoverageβ charges, whatever the level of attack. An emergency service deals with attacks in progress. It can be activated within minutes through a DNS change and this aspect of the service is available to any organisation using HTTP or HTTPS protocols, whether or not they are contracted to the company. A comprehensive, multi-protocol, hosted managed proxy service provides pre-emptive, always-on protection for customers that choose to locate their own hardware in the Adversor mitigation Point-of-Presence (PoP) or use a virtualised proxy platform managed by Adversor. Alternatively, customers can opt for a BGP routed solution. Customers have access to detailed traffic and anomaly detection metrics via the Adversor portal. Adversorβs substantial European based scrubbing centres ensure there are no capacity or latency problems. The companyβs fully accredited technical team has over 20 yearsβ experience in defending against DDoS attacks in major international companies and provides 24/7/365 support. Adversorβs chief technology officer, Dave Lane, commented: βThe exponential growth of DDoS attacks over the last few years has seen a lot of companies coming into the market offering protection services that are just not up to the task. IP filtering, used in isolation, is totally inadequate against the sophistication of todayβs attacks and the claimed bandwidth available for mitigation is often greatly exaggerated because itβs shared with other services. Organisations that that believe they are protected are not; thereβs a lot of questionable insurance selling going on in this market. Adversorβs service is built upon decades of experience, proven hardware based on Arbor platforms, and our own patent-pending software algorithms. No other European company offers a comparably secure and reliable service to meet the needs of companies whose financial survival may depend upon being able to effectively defend IT assets.β +++ ends +++ Adversor contact: Paul Steadman, Adversor Limited Tel: +44 (0) 203 170 8228 E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org PR agency contact: Nick Daines, TechnoPR Tel: +44 (0) 115 8412109 Mobile: +44 (0)7958 534731 E-mail: email@example.com About Adversor Adversor provides True Dynamic Mitigationβ’ against Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks in applications where server availability is of critical importance.
