Nexusguard launches ‘industry first’ cloud DDoS mitigation platform

07 Mar 17

Automation is the name of the game in cybersecurity - or at least that’s what Nexusguard, Juniper Networks and Serro Solutions have worked on to combat a rapidly escalating DDoS attack environment.

Nexusguard sought better protection for its enterprise customers in the face of sudden DDoS attacks. With the help of Juniper Networks and Serro Solutions, the company created what it calls an agile routing platform that works with software-defined networking (SDN) and automation architectures.

The result is what Nexusguard says is the industry’s first software-defined cloud DDoS mitigation platform.

It can manage multiple large-scale DDoS attacks concurrently by automatically routing engineering and optimising traffic through Nexusguard’s network of service providers. 

Nexusguard CEO Jolene Lee says the collaboration ensures customer networks will remain strong in the event of a DDoS attack.

A recent study showed that the DDoS attack size has grown 40 times since 2008. From Q4 2015 to Q2 2016, more than 1500 DDoS were recorded every day.

 “As DDoS attacks continue to grow and become more complex, having the agility to evolve alongside the attacks and customise our protection strategies to serve our clients is paramount. With our valued technology partners Juniper Networks and Serro, we’re confident in our ability to do that,” a statement from Nexusguard says.
