What do you do when your Web servers are overwhelmed with traffic from a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack? How do you filter or block the offending DDoS traffic, while still allowing legitimate traffic to reach your site(s)?

Apparently, one solution is to engage the services of Prolexic. Prolexic restores mission critical Internet facing infrastructures for global enterprises and government agencies within minutes.  Traffic is routed through the Prolexic scrubbing center where Prolexic technicians analyze and mitigate the attacks while legitimate traffic passes through unaffected.

Five of the world’s ten largest banks and the leading companies in e-Commerce, payment processing, travel/hospitality, gaming and other at-risk industries rely on Prolexic to protect their businesses. Founded in 2003 as the world’s first “in the cloud” DDoS mitigation platform, Prolexic is headquartered in Hollywood, Florida and has scrubbing centers located in the Americas, Europe and Asia.
