Hudson, Mass., June 27, 2011  Corero Network Security IPS Thwarts Malicious Attacks and Ensures the Timely Delivery of Information

Corero Network Security (CORO:LN), a leading global provider of Network Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) and Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Defense Solutions, today announced that it has been awarded "Best Deployment Scenario – Intrusion Prevention Solution" by Info Security Products Guide in the Best Deployment Scenarios and Case Studies Awards.

"We are proud that Corero has been recognized based on a real-world customer deployment for its differentiated IPS solution," said Mike Paquette, chief strategy officer at Corero. "This recognition further demonstrates Corero's commitment to providing customers with best-of-breed network IPS and DDoS Defense Solutions to protect them against evolving and increasingly malicious threats including Botnets, malware and denial of service."

Case in point, cited by Info Security Products Guide: Corero's IPS technology has played a vital role in the successful transition of news organization, the Journal Register Company, into an agile, cloud-enabled, digital-first content delivery provider. Corero came on board at a critical juncture to stop a DDoS attack that was underway despite incumbent firewall technologies the Journal Register had in place at the time. Today, IPS continues to be a central component in the Journal Register's network security infrastructure as Corero provides the long-term protection the organization needs to thwart future attacks.

From a security standpoint, Corero has transformed the Journal Register's IT department and is a key technology partner in their effort to combat malicious attacks. Corero's IPS devices function with little or no intervention, and upgrades and updates occur automatically. As a leader in delivering digital content, the Journal Register values the peace of mind that Corero's IPS deployment has provided as it allows them to continue to be pioneers in content delivery to 16 million readers.

"The most powerful message security vendors can give to prove their capabilities and continued commitment in solving customers' security needs is through successful deployments," says Rake Narang, editor-in-chief, Info Security Products Guide. "Corero Network Security's successful IPS deployment at the Journal Register Company helped solve their immediate DDoS problem and puts them in good stead to continue to block malicious attacks and prevent critical business disruptions."
