On a Saturday afternoon, an online movie subscription service operated by RealVision was brought down for about 12 hours by a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack. During the attack, subscribers were unable to download and view movies, and the movie site could not accept new member subscriptions, which is its main source of revenue.

The company’s hosting service had only one way to stop the DDoS attacks– pull the plug on the website after the DDoS attack against RealVision took down the entire hosting service.

After interviewing several DDoS mitigation providers, RealVision found DDoS protection with Prolexic.

Excerpt

“After RealVision began routing traffic to its movie subscription site through Prolexic scrubbing centers, DDoS attackers struck again – this time with an attack on RealVision’s header IP addresses. But this time the attackers were in for a surprise. [RealVision CFO Mark] Johnson believes having DDoS mitigation protection with Prolexic is good insurance for RealVision because cyber attacks are becoming larger, more prevalent and increasingly damaging to online businesses.”

Protect your organization from DoS and DDoS attacks. In this case study you’ll learn how RealVision and its movie subscription service faced DDoS denial of service attacks and stopped the DDoS attacks with Prolexic’s DDoS protection service.
