Corero Network Security Wins Gold and Silver Accolades at 2015 Golden Bridge Awards

Company’s First Line of Defense Solution Recognized for Data Center, Cloud Security and Network Security Solution Innovations

Hudson, MA – December 11, 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 three 2015 Golden Bridge Awards. The company’s First Line of Defense solution was named the gold winner in the “Data Center – Innovations” category, and the silver winner in the “Cloud Security – Innovations” and “Network Security Solution – Innovation” categories.

According to Corero’s Mid-Year DDoS Trends and Analysis Report, almost all DDoS attacks targeting customer networks in the first half of 2015 were less than 30 minutes in duration and averaged less than 1 Gbps in bandwidth utilization – and this class of impactful, sub-saturating DDoS has increased by 32 percent from Q1 to Q2 2015. With DDoS attacks increasing in frequency and sophistication, companies around the world are depending on Corero’s SmartWall TDS to defend themselves against DDoS attacks. The SmartWall TDS inspects traffic, detects threats against protected resources, and blocks attacks in real time – preventing network and service outages. It is purpose-built to meet the needs of hosting providers and data centers, Internet Service Providers, and medium-to-large enterprises and can mitigate a range of DDoS attacks while avoiding delays in the delivery of legitimate traffic.

“While DDoS attacks were previously thought of as nuisance attacks, adversaries are leveraging them in increasingly unique ways – from smokescreens for other malicious activity to ransom-driven attacks – and companies are turning to Corero’s SmartWall TDS to defend themselves against these threats,” said Dave Larson, COO, Corero. “We are proud to partner with our customers to safeguard their networks from DDoS attacks, and these awards are a credit to our team’s hard work to deliver the highest quality First Line of Defense solution.”

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