Nov. 27, 2012 - PRLog -- Bournemouth, UK -  27th November 2012: Data centre and connectivity specialist C4L today announced the launch of its Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Mitigation Service, designed to provide organisations with protection against large-scale DDoS attacks without the need to invest in costly in-house equipment, software or dedicated security staff. Provided in partnership with DDoS experts Webscreen Technology, the new, highly-scalable service means subscribing organisations will be protected from the worst effects of DDoS attacks, as their website traffic is routed through the C4L mitigation service before reaching their own servers. Non-subscribers can also contract the service in an emergency to help speed up recovery from DDoS attacks in the unfortunate event that they are affected.  

“As organisations increasingly recognise DDoS as a serious and growing threat, they are asking the same question: ‘how can we guarantee effective but economical DDoS protection?’” said Gary Barter, Telecom and Connectivity Product Manager at C4L. “The initial expense of in-house DDoS mitigation can be prohibitive for many organisations in today’s tough economic climate and without proven DDoS protection organisations are always susceptible to being taken off line. By providing DDoS mitigation as an affordable, scalable, always-on service C4L and Webscreen Technology are helping ensure that all organisations can afford fast, effective and economical DDoS protection 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

C4L’s service diverts traffic for user sites through its own screening service, ensuring that only “clean” requests reach the protected site/s. By analysing all incoming packets and filtering out unwanted and suspicious requests the Webscreen Technology solution constantly learns and adapts, ensuring that potentially threatening packets are identified and blocked.  Webscreen Technology’s heuristic DDoS mitigation software is the most qmtgg advanced of its type and is proven to detect and mitigate all known forms of DDoS attack vectors. This effectiveness combined with  the speed of C4L’s own dedicated fibre network results in a fast service that is always available to legitimate visitors even when the site/s are being aggressively attacked by DDoS.

“Webscreen Technology has always been a pioneer of DDoS mitigation and we are delighted to have this opportunity to work with C4L on the first proxy service to use our advanced heuristic technology,” said Paul Bristow, C.O.O.  of Webscreen Technology. “DDoS attacks are growing in volume, size and sophistication and it’s vital that customers have the ability to keep their businesses running without the threat of DDoS attacks. By offering this service in partnership with C4L we can ensure that all organisations, no matter what their size, have the opportunity to protect themselves 24/7 from this growing and costly risk.”

The C4L DDoS Mitigation Service is available immediately. It also provides an emergency recovery service to organisations that are actively under DDoS attack, allowing them to return to operation faster. For more information, please visit www.c4l.co.uk
