NSFOCUS, a global provider of DDoS mitigation solutions and services announced today that it has been included in Gartner's Competitive Landscape: DDoS Mitigation Solutions report.
Because of the significant increase in the complexity, size and frequency of DDoS attacks, the necessity for DDoS mitigation has never been stronger:
- Gartner description of the DDoS mitigation market - "The market for distributed denial of service (DDoS) mitigation consists of the infrastructure and service providers (collectively referred to as DDoS mitigation solution providers) that assist organizations to drop or clean network traffic that is meant to disrupt networks, servers or applications."
- Carrier-grade performance - NSFOCUS is a proven global leader in providing cyber security network solutions and services to the service provider, enterprise, telco and government markets. Its solutions are purpose-built to provide carrier-grade performance for Anti-DDoS System (ADS) and enterprise-level Web security protection.
- Natively-built world-class DDoS mitigation - The NSFOCUS Anti-DDoS System (ADS) combines independent traffic monitoring and detection, providing DDoS mitigation from the network layer to the application layer. The system can be used to establish a service-level, cloud-based scrubbing center and may also be deployed as an on-premise protection solution where data is shared between devices. This unique capability provides unsurpassed real-time detection and visibility without affecting the business that is under protection.
- Easy to implement and run - CISO teams appreciate the easy-to-implement and run capabilities and the product's proprietary algorithms that provide deep insight for attack protection, while CEOs value the competitive price-point and brand protection the solution provides. Additionally, the NSFOCUS managed security service, based on its ADS appliance, provides customers with expertise on DDoS mitigation.
