Manchester-based Hosting Provider Deploys NSFOCUS Anti-DDoS Solution

M247, a hosting provider based in Manchester, England, has selected the NSFOCUS Anti-DDoS System (ADS).

Officials with NSFOCUS, a global provider of solutions and services for distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) detection and mitigation, said that the Anti-DDoS System empowers customers to find and fend off a variety of incidents, from simple network layer attacks to more sophisticated and potentially damaging application-layer attacks, all while guaranteeing legitimate traffic gets through to networks and corporate-critical systems.

Thanks to the solution, M247 would be able to enhance its security infrastructure and enable the company to protect its customers against increasingly intense DDoS attacks.  "Our European network carries massive volumes of traffic for customers that trust us to deliver superior security and uptime. We evaluated a number of anti-DDoS platforms and found that the NSFOCUS proposal superseded our requirements in terms of traffic visualization, analysis and protection," said Chris Byrd, technical director at M247, in a statement.

"We've been impressed with the level of support from NSFOCUS, and the ADS platform reinforces our position as one of Europe's leading hosting and network service providers," said Byrd. Bo Yu, NSFOCUS regional director for the U.K., Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg, said that equipped with NSFOCUS' advanced ADS solutions, M247 can now avoid the kind of complex DDoS attacks that result in significant business losses.

Yu said that this is a competitive differentiator for any hosting provider, especially as the frequency and intensity of these attacks escalate.

Earlier in September, NSFOCUS had announced that Los Angeles-based Web hosting provider Psychz Networks has improved its customers’ website uptime and lowered service disruptions with the company's DDoS detection and mitigation solutions.

Since implementing the NSFOCUS anti-DDoS system, network traffic analyzer (NTA (News - Alert)) and ADS-M management platform, Psychz Networks can offer its customers the peace of mind that their websites have a battle-tested protection plan in place against DDoS attacks.
