Imperva 300x205 Cloud Based DDoS Protection From ImpervaImperva launched today a cloud based service that safeguards businesses from debilitating and protracted Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks. The new service called Imperva Cloud DDoS Protection helps organizations protect against the downtime and brand damage, and potential lost revenue caused by DDoS attacks.

Amichai Shulman, CTO of Imperva said “Hackers frequently tune DDoS attacks, and our service will help enterprises better block one of the main weapons in a hacker’s arsenal. This year we’ve seen a number of significant DDoS attacks that have caused significant down time for websites. The Imperva Cloud DDoS service combines scalable DDoS protection that is tuned in real time by a team of DDoS experts with technology powered by Imperva’s cloud-based subsidiary Incapsula.”

Key capabilities of Imperva Cloud DDoS Protection include: Fast, comprehensive DDoS protection, Centralized Attack Analysis, Affordable, easy-to-deploy DDoS protection

According the company, Imperva Cloud DDoS Protection complements the capabilities of the market-leading SecureSphere Web Application Firewall. While SecureSphere stops application DDoS attacks, attacks designed to overwhelm organizations’ Internet connections are better dealt with before they reach organizations’ networks. Cloud DDoS Protection scales on-demand to protect against multi-gigabit attacks–much greater than many enterprises’ Internet connections–and to avoid costly over-provisioning of bandwidth.
