Corero Network Security enhances SmartProtect – DDoS Protection as-a-Service

Ashley Stephenson of Corero

Corero Network Security plc, a provider of real-time, high-performance, automatic Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) cyber defense solutions announces several new capabilities of their SmartProtect offering, along with flexible procurement models.

These new capabilities make it easier than ever for Service Providers, Hosting Providers, and Managed Service Providers/Managed Security Service Providers (MSP/MSSPs) to deliver Corero’s DDoS Protection as-a-service (DDPaaS) as a premium value-add offering to their customers which maximises Return on Investment (ROI). 

Providers are now able to gain even more control when defending against saturating attacks without resorting to blocking all traffic (good and bad) to the victim.

New features include:

  • Enhanced Traffic Control – automated features, such as fine-grained policies that enable flexible service-level traffic control enforcement, with both local and remote signaling, and the ability to exclude critical infrastructure IP addresses from automated blocking policies.
  • Flexible Service-Level Enforcement – automatic, real-time protection service with the flexibility to defend against the saturating DDoS attacks, without resorting to blocking all traffic to the victim.

SmartProtect is powered by Corero’s award-winning SmartWall solution, which delivers real-time, automatic mitigation of DDoS attacks in seconds not the minutes or tens-of-minutes taken by traditional providers. Supporting multiple deployment topologies, SmartWall utilises an always on DDoS mitigation architecture to automatically, and surgically, remove just the DDoS attack traffic.

“These latest enhancements to SmartProtect make it even more attractive for providers that are looking to generate incremental recurring revenue and gain a competitive advantage in the marketplace by offering DDoS Protection as-a-service to their end customers,” says Corero CTO, Ashley Stephenson.
