E-commerce is vulnerable to distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks. That’s why Prolexic is now providing DDoS protection to IPG Holdings – and its merchant clients — against payment processing outages associated with DoS and DDoS attacks.

IPG Holdings hosts payment forms for some large direct merchants and payment service providers, and these front-facing forms have been vulnerable to DDoS denial of service attacks.

IPG came to Prolexic for DDoS protection. In the battle against the DDoS attackers, Prolexic used 20 proprietary and commercial DDoS mitigation tools to stop two denial of service attacks on the payment platform URL of IPG clients’ site.

Learn more about these attacks and how Prolexic stopped them in the case study.


“A merchant using IPG’s payment platform has been attacked a number of times. This attack took both IPG and the targeted merchant by surprise and while it caused minimal downtime to IPG’s network, the attack disrupted service delivery to customers being serviced on the same subnet.”

Protect your organization from DoS and DDoS attacks. In this case study you’ll learn how IPG and its merchant clients faced DDoS attacks and fought back with the help of Prolexic. DDoS attacks end here.
