First Line of Defense® for the Enterprise
Today’s enterprises are truly dependent on their online presence, whether it is for generating revenues, ensuring high employee productivity, or providing a superb customer experience. Ubiquitous Internet access also makes the online enterprise susceptible to cyber-attacks such as DDoS, from around the world. The resulting service outages cause costly downtime, lost productivity, brand damage and impact the enterprise’s legitimate users. Unfortunately, traditional security solutions like firewalls and IPS devices are ineffective against advanced cyber-threats and are frequently a target of attacks themselves. What enterprises need is a First Line of Defense solution which is built to withstand modern cyber threats, ensuring business continuity of their Internet facing services and applications.
The Corero First Line of Defense solution is a network security product deployed between the Internet and the enterprise network, designed to meet the evolving protection requirements of modern enterprise’s mission critical infrastructure.
As the First Line of Defense for your network, the purpose built, on-premises Corero DDS ensures business uptime and protects the investment in your IT infrastructure by preventing DDoS attacks from crippling your Internet accessible systems such as firewalls, intrusion prevention systems (IPS), Web and DNS servers. DDS leverages Corero’s award-winning DDoS defense technology to deliver non-disruptive protection against constantly evolving cyber threats. It stops a broad range of DDoS attacks and cyber threats, without degrading performance. DDS provides maximum protection for critical IT assets while still allowing full access to legitimate users and applications.
