Corero Network Security Named as Finalist for Fierce Innovation Awards: Telecom Edition

Company’s SmartWall® Threat Defense System for Real-Time DDoS Protection Recognized in the Category of Network and Device Security

Hudson, MA – October 5, 2015 – Corero Network Security (LSE: CNS), a leading provider of First Line of Defense® security solutions against DDoS attacks, today announced that the SmartWall® Threat Defense System (TDS) has been selected as a finalist in this year’s Fierce Innovation Awards: Telecom Edition, a reviewed awards program from the publishers of FierceWireless, FierceTelecom and FierceCable.

All applications were evaluated based on the following criteria: technology innovation, financial impact, market validation, compatibility with existing networks, end-user customer experience, and overall level of innovation.

The Corero SmartWall TDS has enabled Internet service providers to modernize DDoS protection, specifically taking advantage of real-time DDoS mitigation through proven deployment models that are completely changing the economics of DDoS services with dedicated in-line deployment of appliance based DDoS detection and mitigation at peering and transit points. With this evolution comes a new economic model for DDoS protection, which is comprised of distributed, highly scalable engines that remove DDoS attack traffic at the Internet edge, versus relying on costly scrubbing center operations that require human intervention and analysis.

“We are honored to be named as an award finalist in the Fierce Innovation Awards program, as this recognition is a testament to the work Corero has been doing in the Telco and Carrier space; to deliver solutions that protect customers from the evolving DDoS threat landscape with a more sophisticated and economically viable solution than previously available in the market.” said Dave Larson, CTO and Vice President, Product, Corero.
