Corero Secures Its Largest Single Hosting Provider Deployment To Date

Corero Network Security is pleased to announce a significant order for its SmartWall® Threat Defense System (“SmartWall TDS”) from a US hosting provider.

"The order, valued at over $400,000, is Corero’s largest single hosting provider deployment to date and follows a successful Proof of Concept (“POC”) trial during which Corero was able to demonstrate the effectiveness of having in-line, real-time Distributed Denial of Service (“DDoS”) protection delivered by the SmartWall TDS. A key element of the POC was demonstrating the value of Corero’s automatic mitigation, which will enable the customer, a provider of hosting and Cloud computing services, to scale its business while maximising the productivity of network and security operations staff in the daily battle against DDoS attacks targeting hosted customers. The solution comprises multiple Corero SmartWall TDS products with supporting SecureWatch® services for one year.

Ashley Stephenson, CEO of Corero, commented: “This hosting provider customer order is a strong endorsement of Corero’s view of the commercial opportunity in the important and growing hosting provider market. Being able to demonstrate the efficacy, performance and scalability of the Corero SmartWall TDS against the competition, through a successful POC, was critical for this very important contract win for Corero. “Hosting providers are increasingly seeing the value of using automatic, in-line DDoS mitigation technology as their primary response to the increasingly frequent challenge of DDoS attacks. We believe this is a trend set to continue, with hosting providers welcoming the opportunity to generate revenue from security services such as DDoS-protected hosting for their customers. “Corero looks forward to strengthening its relationship with this particular customer, and reporting on further successes in the hosting provider vertical in the coming months.”
