The senior management of a premier American jewelry company had long believed they were protected against distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks by their hosting service, until DDoS hackers attempting to extort the company took its website down for three days. With its hosting service unable to stop the DDoS denial of service attacks, and losing millions of dollars a day, the jewelry firm turned to Prolexic.

Within an hour of the first emergency call, Prolexic had restored the jeweler’s website. Although DDoS hackers continued to bombard the site, using a large dual-vector encrypted/unencrypted DDoS attack and changing signatures 10 times, Prolexic successfully stopped every attack.

The company continued its contract with Prolexic. In the words of its Chief Security Officer, “We have seen the value first hand.”


“This was a critical situation that was costing us millions every day. After a few minutes talking with Prolexic, we were convinced that they could help us. The situation was grave. Prolexic was able to capture and route the Layer 7 DDoS traffic through its scrubbing centers just minutes after the initial call.”

Protect your organization from DoS and DDoS attacks. In this case study you’ll learn how a premier America jewelry designer faced DDoS attacks and fought back with the help of Prolexic. DDoS attacks end here.
