When Foundation Source, the nation’s leading foundation management firm, found itself under a crippling distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack late on a Sunday night, it quickly learned that one DoS and DDoS mitigation vendor offered the only hope of getting back online.

Only one DDoS protection service called back that Sunday night. Fortunately for Foundation Source, that company was Prolexic. Within 24 hours Prolexic had identified the DDoS attacks details, blocked the DDoS attacks, and restored Foundation Source’s website. Today, Foundation Source is a strong believer in Prolexic’s DDoS protection.


“We checked our firewall and saw that there were 6,000 to 7,000 active connections whereas we usually have an average of 600 connections max when all our clients are on the site. (Our) ISP was unable to help because it couldn’t weed out the malicious traffic without affecting other clients. (We) began an online search to find a DDoS mitigation vendor – around 9 p.m. on a Sunday night.”

Protect your organization against DoS and DDoS attacks. In this case study you’ll learn why ISPs are not enough and how Prolexic helps organization shut down DDoS attacks in real time, at any time, day or night.
