Windstream to Deliver “Always On” DDoS Mitigation Service Based on Industry-Leading Web Application Firewall and DDoS Protection Services From Imperva
“Working with Imperva enables Windstream to help mitigate enterprise security risks by offering a multi-layered approach to enterprise customers when it comes to protecting their high-value applications and data assets in our physical and virtual data centers,” said
As a provider of Imperva “always on” security solutions, Windstream’s DDoS Mitigation Service can secure websites against the largest and smartest DDoS threats that use high volume attacks to overwhelm a business’ network or IT environment. The intelligent, multi-layered protection – supported by carrier-grade edge routers – filters out IP attacks and performs real-time analysis to manage DDoS traffic profiling and blocking. The service was designed to automatically defeat attacks without requiring intervention or interrupting service.
Included with this layered approach, the WAF service detects and removes malicious web traffic. The WAF uses intelligent traffic profiling and bot detection technology to accurately weed out threats. This multi-layer approach is continuously updated with the latest detection and defense techniques for the most reliable results.
“The number of DDoS attacks reported by businesses is increasing each year resulting in millions of dollars of damages per hour for some financial and web-based businesses,” stated
“We’re pleased to welcome Windstream into the PartnerSphere program. As an advanced enterprise technology provider, Windstream provides a powerful backbone for security, especially with its nationally distributed data centers and expertise in infrastructure security,” said
