Corero and Juniper Networks Expand DDoS Integration to PTX Series Routers
Further strengthens the overall solution to include real-time
protection against carpet bombing attacks
Corero Network Security plc (AIM: CNS), a leading provider of real-time high-performance, automatic Distributed Denial of Service ("DDoS") cyber defense solutions, announces significant enhancements to its SmartWall Threat Defense Director ("SmartWall TDD") in partnership with Juniper Networks, a key strategic sales partner for Corero.
The expanded agreement extends DDoS protections across Juniper's PTX and MX series routers, enabling Corero's SmartWall TDD technology to prevent DDoS attack traffic directly at the edge of the customers network in seconds, also including newly enhanced protections against DDoS carpet bombing, also known as 'spread spectrum' or 'subnet' attacks.
The enhanced Corero SmartWall TDD integrates with Juniper routers to deliver one of the most innovative DDoS solutions in today's cyber defense market.
Corero and Juniper have sought to further leverage their successful partnership, delivering a state-of-the-art solution against DDoS attacks to deliver automatic, real-time detection that delivers line-rate mitigation through pre-integration with Juniper's network infrastructure products.
DDoS attacks are becoming more sophisticated, and launching an attack is increasingly easy, with startlingly low barriers to entry for cybercriminals. Numbers of recorded attacks are on the rise, with significant shifts in attackers' motives and goals. The latest trend of 'carpet bombing' sees attackers targeting a range of addresses, or entire subnets, rather than a single IP address. This helps them to evade traditional and manual approaches to mitigation. Although carpet bomb attacks are not new, their use is becoming more prevalent, posing a serious threat to unprotected internet service and hosting providers, as well as their downstream customers.
Lionel Chmilewsky, Chief Executive Officer, commented:
"We are delighted to announce these significant enhancements to the Juniper and Corero joint DDoS defense solution. Our strategic partnership equips Juniper with an industry-leading DDoS protection solution, leveraging its SDN-enabled PTX and MX Series routers and Corero's software intelligence.
"Together we can deliver expert protection against the growing threat of DDoS."
Samantha Madrid, Group Vice President, Security Business & Strategy at Juniper Networks, added:
"This collaboration with Corero enables us to provide our customers with automatic, real-time protection against DDoS attacks while helping to eliminate service downtime.
"This is another tangible example of how we bring the Juniper Connected Security vision to life - safeguarding users, applications and infrastructure by extending security to every point of connection."
