This week, SOVA, a seller of Verizon telecom solutions announced that it is offering a cutting-edge distributed denial of service (DDoS) mitigation solution called Verizon DDoS Shield. The company claims to help businesses protect themselves against crippling attacks with this launch.
Verizon’s DDoS Shield detects and identifies attacks and helps prevent them from taking down the targeted site. The company says that it is a high-capacity DDoS protection service that quickly reroutes malicious traffic to help keep IT resources readily available.
Gene Esopi, President and CEO, SOVA said:
No one is immune to this. That’s the reality of putting your business online today.
DDoS attacks are becoming more and more common. If Twitter is vulnerable, anybody is vulnerable.
In a DDoS attack, the perpetrator infects a random army of 1,000’s of poorly protected computers with malware designed to target specific networks. SOVA explains that this makes it impossible to prevent or stop the attack by blocking a single IP address. It is also nearly impossible to distinguish legitimate traffic from DDoS traffic. This incoming traffic overwhelms the network and either shuts it down or severely compromises it.
Verizon DDoS Shield is one of the most exciting tools that SOVA offers its agents.
One of the reasons it is so effective is that Verizon has enormous DDoS reservoir services—they have significant capacity for filtering DDoS attacks.
