Corero Network Security has announced integration with Verisign OpenHybrid and support for Verisign’s open standards-based approach for hybrid DDoS solutions.
For Verisign and Corero customers, the integration combines on-premises technology from Corero Network Security to defeat sub-saturating DDoS attacks, alongside cloud-based DDoS Protection Service from Verisign for high volume and complex application layer attacks that exceed the customer’s network and resource capacity.
The architecture is designed to detect and respond to a large spectrum of DDoS attacks, ranging from high volume denial of service attempts to blended multi-vector threats, as well as low and slow application layer attacks. The solution detects, analyses and responds to DDoS attacks by inspecting raw internet traffic at line rate and identifying the threat within the first few packets of an attack.
“This collaboration with Verisign further underscores the momentum in the market for a hybrid approach to DDoS defense,” said Dave Larson, CTO and vice president, product at Corero. “Further, the technology integration between the two organizations is an example of combining best-of-breed solutions in both categories in order to better defend customers against DDoS attacks with real-time defense technology.”
“Corero’s work to integrate with Verisign’s OpenHybrid APIs has been exceptional,” said Danny McPherson, senior vice president and chief security officer at Verisign. “This integration enables customers to stay ahead of the DDoS challenge through a combined, always-on hybrid DDoS solution based on open standards.”
