Corero Secures New Contract – One of the World’s Largest Hosting Companies

Corero Network Security plc (AIM: CNS), the AIM listed network security company, is pleased to announce a significant order for its SmartWall® Threat Defense System (“SmartWall TDS”) from a US-based international hosting provider. The customer is one of the world’s largest hosting companies.

Valued at $0.7 million, the order is Corero’s largest to date in the fast-growing Cloud/Hosting market segment, and follows a successful Proof of Concept trial during which Corero was able to demonstrate the effectiveness of automatic, in-line, real-time DDoS protection.

The solution comprises multiple Corero SmartWall TDS products deployed in the hosting provider’s global data centres, with supporting SecureWatch® services for one year, which will enable the customer to provide protection from DDoS attacks for its clients.

Ashley Stephenson, CEO of Corero, said:

“There is growing demand in the hosting provider market for DDoS protection and Corero has secured another important win with a flagship customer. SmartWall TDS continues to prove its market leadership capabilities.”
