HOLLYWOOD, Fla., March 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Prolexic Technologies, the global leader in managed Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection, announced that it has been granted a patent for its unique DDoS detection and mitigation methods. This is the only DDoS-related patent granted to a security-as-a-service organization.

Prolexic's patented "in the cloud" network protection services are based around active DDoS mitigation on a globally distributed platform. The Prolexic network is designed to absorb DDoS attacks near their source, long before they reach their target. The company's network security experts update its arsenal through rigorous and creative research and development, providing the only protection service capable of responding to truly next-generation attacks.

Paul Sop, Chief Technology Officer, Prolexic states: "Determined cyber criminals aren't resting. They're continually evolving sophisticated and powerful techniques and can launch truly devastating attacks that can cripple online businesses. These attacks can only be stopped by security and networking experts employing even more sophisticated and powerful capabilities.

"Prolexic's key to mitigating network attacks is our systems adaptability to simultaneously mitigate a huge variety of attacks including huge - 100 Gigabit or larger - and subtle, application-targeted attacks. We consider developing our intellectual property to be a strategic priority, and the ongoing development of new technologies is critical in a world of ever evolving cyber-threats."

DDoS represents one of the greatest threats to all organizations with a significant online component. In recent times it has been used as a terrorist tool with state web sites targeted, as well as the anti-competitive and extortion-led attacks against businesses. Prolexic's unique service solutions allow its customers to be fully protected from cyber attacks without affecting normal day-to-day Internet traffic flow. The company has further patent applications pending.
