NSFOCUS, Inc., a global provider of solutions and services for distributed denial of service mitigation, today introduced its Managed Security Service (MSS) to the North American market. MSS complements NSFOCUS’ carrier-grade Anti-DDoS System [http://www.nsfocus.com/en/2012/ads_pro_0809/26.html] (ADS) by helping high-capacity data center operators and Web hosting service providers protect their most valuable asset: customers’ websites. The solution combines enterprise-level DDoS hardware and software with dedicated monitoring from NSFOCUS’s cloud-based network security operation centers around the world.
DDoS attacks are continuing to evolve in complexity and can occur at any time. Web hosting service providers and data center colocation operators, whose revenues are closely tied to the ongoing success of their customers’ websites, require a deeper level of DDoS support than previously available.
“MSS can evaluate and determine, based on proprietary algorithms, whether or not a site visitor is a human or a malicious botnet. But that is only the beginning,” said Frank Ip, vice president of U.S. operations for NSFOCUS. “The one-two punch of flexible, battle-tested, on-premise technology and around-the-clock access to a DDoS security expert makes MSS a true business partner for keeping website uptime high, maintaining customer satisfaction and generating additional revenue.”
The key to effective DDoS mitigation is the ability to identify malicious user behavior while still allowing the free flow of good user traffic. The multi-layered technology built into MSS enables Web hosting service providers to send all traffic through the ADS hardware, processing legitimate users while segregating suspicious ones.
