Xand Announces Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Protection Services

Denial-of-service (DoS) or distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, an attempt to make a machine or network resource unavailable to its intended users, are on rise. According to a survey conducted by Prolexic Technologies, hackers launch more than 7,000 DDoS attacks each day, taking down VoIP and UC systems in addition to websites.

To offer complete protection against malicious tactics and DDoS attacks, Xand together with Radware (News - Alert) has recently rolled out Xand Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Protection Services- a platform providing proactive and responsive DDoS mitigation solutions for cloud and hosted enterprise infrastructure.

Xand DDoS Protection Services promises to offer the highest levels of risk mitigation using DDoS deflection techniques along with thorough monitoring from the Xand Network Operations Center to stop costly downtime. During an attack, Xand DDoS Protection architecture manages the malicious traffic and stops attack patterns to reach client infrastructure.

Ideal for usage in hospitals, universities, financial services firms and retail organizations, Xand DDoS Protection Services guarantees to protect cloud systems and comprehensively guard against user data breaches.

Paul Mazzucco, Xand chief security officer, said that they have custom designed their DDoS mitigation architecture from the ground up, allowing Xand to craft protection frameworks for all aspects of mission-critical hosted systems-- compute, storage, network, and more.

“Leveraging the power of Radware components and the Xand 24x7 Network Operations Center, our customers will not only stay in service during a DDoS attack, but also receive comprehensive monitoring, alerting and reporting to expose attackers and their methods,” Mazzucco added.

This service has built in compliance compatibility with PCI (News - Alert), HIPAA and is powered by service provider-grade Radware appliance.

David Anderson, vice president of Radware stated, “Our goal is to support companies such as Xand and their customers with top of the line DDoS protection technology to assist them with their comprehensive security offering.”

This new service from Xand is already in use with large national organization, protecting their website and other important infrastructure components from attacks designed to inflict operationally disruptive downtime.
