DDoS protection for SaaS, cloud, and high tech product/services providers

Denial of service DoS and DDoS attacks are the most prominent threat to the online availability of Internet-facing and cloud-based applications for SaaS enablement, software and hardware development, and business consulting services for high tech companies. SaaS & other cloud-based providers cannot risk the financial and customer service impact of downtime due to DDoS attacks targeting their application servers – not even for a few minutes – when their customers expect immediate, secure availability of their data, applications and services.

Local network appliances and homegrown DDoS protection solutions are woefully inadequate in the face of the diverse range of powerful DoS and DDoS denial of service attacks that Prolexic mitigates every day. Prolexic’s suite of DDoS protection and mitigation services prevents ground-to-cloud DDoS attacks from taking your business offline, giving you and your customers the peace of mind that data and applications are always available.

Why high tech SaaS/cloud providers choose Prolexic for DDoS protection

  • Prolexic’s infrastructure was designed to mitigate even the largest high-gigabit, randomized, multi-vector attacks. DDoS mitigation is our only business.
  • Prolexic customers – and your applications in the cloud – remain online before, during, and after a DDoS attack.
  • On-demand DDoS mitigation services have a minimal effect on legitimate traffic.
  • Remote DDoS detection and monitoring services (optional) allow Prolexic to detect and stop DDoS attacks before they have any effect on customer services.
