The best customer portal for DDoS attack detection, monitoring and protection

Big data informs Prolexic customers in real-time
While most industry portals use batch processing and present aggregated DDoS attack data with lag time, Prolexic takes a different approach.
We built a low-latency, high-resolution data architecture to provide our customers with the industry’s most granular data in real-time. As a result, Prolexic customers watch DDoS events as they happen – and can respond more quickly.
For example, with PLXportal you can see:
- Views of real-time HTTP and HTTPS request patterns for live traffic
- Unified, timeline of changes associated with external sensors, monitoring, attacks and configurations
- A dashboard with converged views, so you can see relevant data all in one place
- Attack reports and threat intelligence
- Security Operations Center (SOC) alerts
- Configuration information
- Downloadable logs and stats
- Client-specific support information
- An online ticketing system for requests

- Analyzing DDoS attacks
- On PLXportal, we will provide details of the denial of service attack, our DDoS mitigation activities, as well as information about your network, how traffic is distributed, and a timeline of events, so you can make more informed decisions.
