DoS and DDoS Attack Mitigation Case Study

Prolexic Restores e-Commerce Site to Full Operation within Minutes of Aggressive Layer 3 DDoS Attack

Company deploys emergency DDoS mitigation service to combat malicious Layer 3 attack on leading auto parts retailer

For a period of three consecutive evenings, auto parts and accessories e-commerce site PartsGeek.com was brought down by aggressive distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks. When management sought help from their hosting provider, they were told that the attack was simply too large. Despite contacting alternate DDoS mitigation service providers, they were offered no solution until they contacted Prolexic.

Excerpt

“These DDoS attacks were causing 100 percent disruption to our business so we had to do something to stop them fast… The denial of service attacks stopped as soon as Prolexic deployed their mitigation solution and we haven’t been attacked since.”

Brian Tinari, President
