Unique service offering immediately reduces customer exposure to security threats
SAN FRANCISCO – April 26, 2016 – Nexusguard, the worldwide leader in distributed denial of service (DDoS) security solutions, today announced it has partnered with Security Compass’ DDoS Strike division to help Nexusguard customers in North America and EMEA test their anti-DDoS mitigation efforts from day one. With DDoS Strike’s independent verification services, organizations can validate Nexusguard’s mitigation solutions during the onboarding process to reduce potential vulnerabilities immediately. For existing Nexusguard customers, a more comprehensive version of DDoS Strike is also available to identify strengths and potential weaknesses in their overall DDoS mitigation strategy.
Enterprises have struggled to keep pace with the constantly evolving DDoS landscape; stronger, more sophisticated attack methods; and the skillsets required to battle attackers. To proactively protect themselves, enterprises need to be able to simulate advanced DDoS attack scenarios, deploy testing methods that are equipped to identify any potential weaknesses and leverage these techniques to continuously improve their DDoS mitigation capabilities.
“This collaborative approach will change the way organizations think about their DDoS mitigation strategies, moving away from prevention to resiliency,” said Sahba Kazerooni, vice president of the DDoS Strike division of Security Compass. “DDoS Strike services complement Nexusguard’s mitigation offerings, and customers come out the real winners with a solid DDoS mitigation strategy.”
“Enterprises understand the devastation that can come from an attack, which is why our customers embrace strategies that view security from a holistic standpoint,” said Xenophon Giannis, vice president of Nexusguard. “We’ve partnered with DDoS Strike to bring our prospects and customers a service that will ensure they have the most effective mitigation strategy.
