Defense.net DDoS Mitigation
The face of the cyber-attacker has changed and the stakes for organizations, countries and the average person are greater than ever before. Organizations, especially those in the financial services industry, face increasing threats from the escalating scale and complexity of Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks and a growing number of antagonists willing to use them. Despite spending millions on legacy DDoS mitigation hardware and services, businesses are still experiencing catastrophic DDoS effects, including website outages, blocked users, and latency that renders web applications useless. Founded by Barrett Lyon, who created the DDoS mitigation industry more than 10 years ago, Defense.net has combined the top minds in the DDoS mitigation space with breakthrough new technologies designed to effectively address today’s and tomorrow’s DDoS mitigation challenges. It is the only company to defend businesses and organizations against this new generation of sophisticated DDoS attacks while delivering the highest levels of Internet application performance.
