    HOLLYWOOD, Fla., Oct. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Distributed Denial of Service
 mitigation specialists, Prolexic Technologies announced its expansion in
 the East Asia region as it forged a partnership with IPVG Corp. (PSE:
 IPVG). Prolexic is also building the first and only large-scale DDoS
 mitigation platform in Asia, which is expected to go live by the end of
     Through this partnership, IPVG is able to offer its customers a
 dynamic, and highly effective solution to DDoS attacks, which is considered
 to be the world's most costly form of cyber crime of late. Prolexic's
 solution responds in real time to DDoS attacks, mitigating them at multiple
 layers and enabling legitimate traffic to continue to reach its
     IPVG customers whose websites come under DDoS attack will initially
 have their traffic diverted through Prolexic's robust infrastructure in
 Europe and the States. Once the localised infrastructure is installed the
 customers will benefit from reduced latency and the fastest routes into
 China, Japan, Australia and Korea.
     Warren K. Liu, CTO of IP-Converge said: "The problem of web attacks is
 increasing and we are committed to providing our customers with the highest
 level of protection possible. We chose to work with Prolexic to offer this,
 because they have the strongest expertise in the field of DDoS and the most
 dynamic solution which will be most able to handle the range of attacks we
 have been seeing in past months."
     Gus Cunningham, EMEA MD, Prolexic said: "East Asia has become one of
 the world's most targeted regions by hackers who exploit PCs to launch
 attacks on internet businesses. IPVG's customers are largely gaming and
 banking companies, who are particularly high risk in terms of their
 attractiveness to would-be attackers. By harnessing Prolexic's technology,
 IPVG is providing these organizations with much needed DDoS protection."
