Corero Network Security Wins 2015 Cyber Defense Magazine Award

Company’s SmartWall Threat Defense System Selected as Editor’s Choice in Data Center Security Solutions Category

Hudson, MA – April 21, 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 as the Editor’s Choice winner of the 2015 Cyber Defense Magazine awards in the Data Center Security Solutions category. With data center outages due to DDoS attacks averaging 86 minutes and costing approximately $8000 per minute, Corero’s SmartWall TDS is enabling these organizations to quickly respond to attacks, protect their customers and ensure maximum service availability.

Customers around the world rely on the Corero SmartWall TDS to defend against the increasingly frequent and sophisticated DDoS attacks targeting their networks. Purpose-built to meet the needs of hosting providers, service providers and online enterprises, the SmartWall TDS network security appliances deliver real-time DDoS protection in rapidly-scalable deployments for higher performance, greater scalability and broader functionality than previously possible. Deployed at the network edge to mitigate a wide range of DDoS attacks, the SmartWall TDS enables customers to maintain full service connectivity while avoiding delays in the delivery of legitimate traffic.

“Our DDoS Trends and Analysis report found that attackers are becoming more creative in their use of DDoS attacks to circumvent organizations’ security technologies – even using DDoS attacks to profile a victim’s network before launching more targeted attacks,” said Dave Larson, CTO and Vice President, Product, Corero Network Security. “With the SmartWall TDS in place, our customers can rest assured that they have a reliable first line of defense against the latest DDoS attacks, and this award from the editors of Cyber Defense Magazine affirms the value we deliver.”

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