Today, we are excited to announce that we have joined forces with Verisign to offer advanced DDoS mitigation and scrubbing capabilities. The reality of today's world is that Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks are a way of life and can happen to any company regardless of size or location. With applications changing from private to public and hybrid clouds, the number of attacks have doubled over the last year.
Verisign manages nearly half the internet’s domain names including .com and .net with deep expertise in critical infrastructure. Our goal is to protect our customers by providing an application delivery platform that is fast, secure, and easy. In 2014, we added a series of cloud security capabilities that included a Web Application Firewall and added functionality to absorb DDoS attacks. To further enhance the offering, we have now integrated with Verisign, which currently protects 70% of global e-commerce today.
This will allow Instart Logic to extend DDoS capabilities and scrub malicious attacks at a global capacity that is unmatched in the industry. The incoming traffic is monitored continuously and the malicious attacks are detected and mitigated in real-time while clean traffic is returned back to the customer's site. This keeps the customer protected with no disruption to their business or to the end user. With this enhanced partnership, Instart Logic is able to provide scrubbing capacity of 2.0 Tbps to protect against the largest DDoS attacks in the history.
Based on a recent survey, over one-third of outages were a result of DDoS attacks. These attacks averaged about 7.4 Gbps, a 245% year-over-year increase and can cost hundreds of millions of dollars and wasted manpower hours.
Our end-to-end application delivery platform uses machine learning to optimize performance and security and includes a CDN for delivery. This partnership enables a one-stop shop to our customers, providing the fastest performance and best-in-breed security along with a seamless sales and support model. We are proud to announce the most valuable solution to Instart Logic and Verisign customers alike!
