DoS and DDoS Attack Mitigation Case Study

Prolexic Protects Critical eCommerce Revenues from DDoS Attacks

World of Watches keeps ticking with Prolexic’s DDoS mitigation services

ECommerce sites are attractive targets for the online criminal underground, particularly during the critical holiday sales season. The popular www.worldofwatches.com website had been under attack periodically in the past, but had gotten by with just a firewall and its hosting provider.

All that changed last December when the website, owned by Swiss Watch International (SWI), a Florida-based company that designs, manufactures and distributes timepieces, came under a bandwidth flood attack that surpassed the limits of its in-house solutions, jeopardizing its daily US $100,000 revenue stream.

Excerpt

“Prolexic gave us a virtual IP to use and when I pointed traffic to Prolexic they were able to mitigate the attack and sent us back clean traffic. We were back up and running within minutes as promised.”

- Darin Greym SWI Chief Technology Officer
