Corero Network Security SmartWall Threat Defense System Receives Two 2015 IT World Awards from Network Products Guide

Company’s DDoS Mitigation Solution Recognized in “IT Products and Services for Enterprise (Medium)” and “IT Products and Services for Finance, Banking and Insurance” Categories

Hudson, MA – July 24, 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 recognized in two categories of Network Products Guide’s 2015 IT World Awards. With the continued use of DDoS attacks to distract IT security teams from more malicious activities, companies around the world are turning to Corero and the SmartWall TDS to detect and prevent these attacks from impacting business operations.

“With the increasing frequency and intelligence behind DDoS attacks, organizations need to be proactively working to combat the DDoS attacks targeting their networks, implementing a first line of defense solution to stop attacks before they can affect the business’ activities or reputation,” said Dave Larson, CTO and Vice President, Product, Corero. “These awards from Network Products Guide are a result of Corero’s hard work to deliver industry-leading DDoS mitigation solutions that help companies protect themselves and, their customers from the effects of DDoS attacks.”

According to a recent survey, nearly half of organizations are still taking a reactive approach to DDoS mitigation – either relying on customer complaints, infrastructure outages or application failures to alert them to an attack. To empower companies to effectively combat the increasingly frequent and sophisticated DDoS attacks targeting their networks, the Corero SmartWall TDS delivers real-time DDoS protection in rapidly-scalable deployments for higher performance, greater scalability and broader functionality than previously possible. It is purpose-built to meet the needs of online enterprises, hosting providers and cloud companies and is deployed at the network edge to mitigate a wide range of DDoS attacks while enabling customers to maintain complete service availability and avoid delays in the delivery of legitimate traffic.

Corero also provides its SmartWall TDS customers with access to SecureWatch Analytics, a Web-based analytics portal available via Splunk application, for access to comprehensive, easy-to-read security dashboards created using DDoS-tailored security feeds from Corero’s First Line of Defense technologies. The solution leverages Splunk software for big data analytics and advanced visualization capabilities to show attacks in real-time, as well top attacks against an environment over any period of time, providing customers with sophisticated visibility into an attack and other malicious traffic usually intended for data exfiltration. SecureWatch Analytics customers also have access to historical reporting, behavioral analysis and forensic capabilities to investigate attacks against their networks.
