The world’s largest brands trust Prolexic for DDoS protection

Prolexic clients are typically from industries that have a high risk of DoS and DDoS denial of service attacks. In fact, ten of the world’s largest banks selected Prolexic for DDoS detection and DDoS protection services. Today Prolexic delivers DDoS protection expertise to hundreds of the world’s largest brands across a broad spectrum of industries.

 

We focus on DDoS mitigation

Prolexic is known globally as the only company focused on DDoS mitigation. Gartner says so, and the FBI, Secret Service and other law enforcement agencies refer customers to us, because they know our track record for the fastest DDoS mitigation of high volume and complex DDoS attacks.

Being a Prolexic customer can reduce DoS and DDoS attacks

Prolexic not only mitigates DDoS attacks successfully and quickly once they start, but simply being our customer discourages denial of service attackers from launching DDoS attacks against your website in the first place. Prolexic’s reputation and our unrivaled in-the-cloud DDoS mitigation capabilities are well known throughout the cyber underworld.

It’s easy for DDoSers to find out which companies’ network traffic will be or is being routed through the Prolexic Global Network. Experienced DDoS attackers knows it’s a waste of their time and bandwidth to try to bring your network and applications down when Prolexic, the world’s largest and best DDoS attack mitigation network, stands in the way.

“There are many providers out there who will host your applications in the cloud to provide DDoS mitigation services, but there are very few who will do it while your site is under a DDoS attack. After narrowing down our short list to Prolexic and another provider, we chose Prolexic. We saw that Prolexic had far more experience in successfully mitigating these kinds of attacks. Most of all, Prolexic was the only provider who actually called our operations manager back at 11 p.m. on Sunday night.”

 

Gerry Battista, Vice President, Information Technology Operations Foundation Source

Retail

“Had we not had Prolexic to mitigate the DDoS attacks, we could have suffered hundreds of thousands of dollars in losses, if not more.”

 

Roland Davoudikia, CEO, 1ink.com

“We never really expected to be the target of a DDoS attack. However, we had a DDoS mitigation solution in place from a hosting company just in case. Unfortunately, that solution could not stop the attack. I was referred to Prolexic and they had our site back up that evening and fully operational.”

 

Pete Ellis, Chairman and CEO Spafinder

“After exploring and testing numerous options on the market, we chose Prolexic, as its DDoS protection system showed the best results in repelling cyberattacks. We are confident that through the partnership with Prolexic, downtime will become ancient history for our company.”

 

Matthew Silverman, CEO PayPro Global

“We have a successful site and don’t want it to go down so that’s why we keep Prolexic’s service.”

 

Darin Grey, Chief Technology Officer, Swiss Watch International (worldofwatches.com)

“I was very impressed with the knowledge and professionalism of the Prolexic team.”

 

Brian Tinari, president, PartsGeek.com

“I must commend the Prolexic DDoS mitigation team who were on the attacks like a watchdog. That gave us the confidence that our site would be protected and available for business.”

 

CTO, e-Commerce company

“When the attack started we contacted several of the largest hosting partners in the U.S. for help. We migrated to the two companies that claimed to have DDoS mitigation tools that would stop the attack. When neither company could mitigate the attack, we turned to Prolexic. One after another the hosting partners stated that the attack was too complex for their mitigation tools and that there was nothing more they could do. We had already begun to research who the leaders in DDoS mitigation were and, after talking to many engineers, Prolexic was the name that kept coming up. We were so impressed by the way Prolexic handled the whole situation and how proactive they were!”

 

Chief Operating Officer, e-Commerce customer

“We’re confident that we’re protected with Prolexic.”

 

Chief Security Officer, Leading American Jewelry Designer

“Business stopped completely, which over several days cost us dearly. A network attack at any time of the year is extremely difficult for a business to deal with. For us in December, with the run up to Christmas, it could have been crippling. The longer we were offline, the more customers we were losing. When Prolexic stepped in, our business was literally saved.”
