Corero Network Security Receives Multiple Global Excellence Awards from Info Security Products Guide

Company’s SmartWall Threat Defense System Recognized in “Innovation in Enterprise Security” and “Security Products and Solutions for Finance and Banking” Categories

Hudson, MA – May 06, 2015 – Corero Network Security (LSE: CNS), a leading provider of First Line of Defense® security solutions against DDoS attacks, today announced that its SmartWall Threat Defense System (TDS) was selected for two 2015 Global Excellence Awards from Info Security Products Guide. As cyber criminals continue to evolve their use of DDoS attacks to infiltrate corporate networks, organizations are relying on Corero’s solutions to mitigate these attacks, maintain operations, and safeguard corporate and customer data from unauthorized access.

“Regardless of their industry or size, all companies are potential targets for DDoS attacks – if they have not been attacked already – and attackers are leveraging DDoS in creative ways. To effectively protect their networks, organizations need a dedicated first line of defense solution in place to stop these attacks before they can impact business operations,” said Dave Larson, CTO and Vice President, Product, Corero. “These Info Security Products Guide awards are a testament to the hard work of Corero’s team in delivering solutions that protect our customers from DDoS attacks, and further strengthen our resolve to ensure we continue delivering the leading protection our customers have come to expect from Corero.”

According to Corero’s recent DDoS Trends and Analysis Report, companies around the world are battling approximately four DDoS attack attempts daily, most of which last less than 30 minutes in duration. Corero ‘s SmartWall TDS helps organizations defend against these increasingly frequent and sophisticated DDoS attacks by delivering real-time DDoS protection in rapidly-scalable deployments for higher performance, greater scalability and broader functionality than previously possible. Purpose-built to meet the needs of hosting providers, cloud companies and online enterprises, the Corero SmartWall TDS is deployed at the network edge to mitigate a wide range of DDoS attacks while enabling customers to maintain full service availability and avoid delays in the delivery of legitimate traffic.

Corero’s SmartWall TDS customers also have access to SecureWatch Analytics, a Web-based analytics portal available via Splunk application, for comprehensive, easy-to-read security dashboards created based on DDoS-tailored security feeds from Corero’s First Line of Defense technologies. This solution leverages Splunk software for big data analytics and advanced visualization capabilities to show attacks in real-time, as well as top attacks against an environment over any period of time. With SecureWatch Analytics, customers have sophisticated visibility into an attack and other malicious traffic that is typically intended for data exfiltration. Customers can also leverage the historical reporting, behavior analysis and forensic capabilities to investigate attacks against their environments.
