Corero Receives Security Industry’s Global Excellence Award for Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Defense System

Corero Network Security has been named “Best Security Product and Solution for Large Enterprises” in the 2012 Global Excellence Awards

HUDSON, MA., March 14, 2012 – Corero Network Security (CNS: LN), the leading provider of Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Defense and Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) solutions, today announced that Info Security Products Guide, the industry's leading information security research and advisory guide, has named Corero’s DDoS Defense System (DDS) the “Best Security Product and Solution for Large Enterprises” in the 2012 Global Excellence Awards.

The 8th Annual 2012 Global Excellence Awards honor excellence in every aspect of the security industry, including products, people and best companies. More than 50 judges globally in the security industry participated, and their average scores determined the winners.

“We are honored to be recognized as the leading provider of DDoS Defense solutions for large enterprises. As DDoS attacks increase in frequency and sophistication,  protection demands an agile system that meets the evolving threat vectors. Corero’s patented DDS solution proactively safeguards against large volume flood attacks as well as low and slow application-layer attacks,” said Marty Meyer, CEO at Corero Network Security. “In a recent Corero-sponsored third party survey, more than a third of the companies had been hit by at least one DDoS attack in the last 12 months. This award is a testament to Corero’s commitment to protecting customers’ networks against these types of malicious attacks.”

Corero's DDS defends against network-layer SYN flood and other rate-based DDoS attacks, and the more insidious, low and slow, application-layer DDoS attacks. The difficulty in identifying these application-layer attacks renders traditional DDoS solutions ineffective, leading to lost revenue and business disruption. DDS builds off of the company's more than 10 years of expertise in DDoS Defense technology and attack mitigation solutions. The solution is built on Corero's flagship fourth-generation network security platform, which features Three-Dimensional Protection (3DP) against network-borne cyber threats, including botnet-based DDoS attacks.

“Now in its 8th year, the Info Security Products Guide Global Excellence Awards recognize excellence in every facet of the security industry,” said Rake Narang, editor-in-chief of Info Security Products Guide. “Corero is an industry innovator that has set the bar high with its DDoS Defense technology. Combating DDoS attacks for more than a decade, Corero was selected as the best security product for large enterprises based on its ability to block these malicious attacks and prevent critical business disruptions.”

Info Security Products Guide recognized Corero’s IPS solution in June 2011, awarding it the publication’s “Best Deployment Scenario – Intrusion Prevention Solution.”
