Corero’s award-winning First Line of Defense solutions are real-time network attack prevention devices that redefine the perimeter of your network. They protect your IT infrastructure against sophisticated Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, application downtime, server targeted threats, information theft and other emerging network attacks before those threats reach your firewall. 

Cyber criminals/hacktivists have reached a level of complexity that firewall technology cannot protect against. While firewalls are designed to, and still do, protect networks from a variety of security issues, there are gaping holes when it comes to DDoS and malicious server targeted attacks. With attacks on the rise, such as the recent DDoS attacks against major U.S. financial services institutions, Corero has created a solution, the DDoS Defense Solution (DDS) that protects existing network and security investments and optimizes their performance by blocking not only against DDoS attacks but unwanted and malicious traffic before it enters the network. DDS does this while allowing revenue generating customer traffic to flow unimpeded to its intended destination. 

These attacks happen every day. 


While it appears due to intense media coverage that victim organizations are high asset targets, do not be fooled. Every organization is within reach. Cyber criminals routinely scan the Internet for vulnerable organizations with security holes and then cheaply, easily and remotely take them down. If you don’t plug the hole you likely will be hit again. 

DDoS and malicious server targeted attacks result in loss of profi ts, damaged reputation, reduced productivity, and costly downtime. A sustained DDoS attack on a high transaction site can cost you over $1million in as little as 24 hours. 

Corero’s new perimeter solution detects and stops bad traffic before it reaches your IT infrastructure, allowing your firewalls, Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) and other devices to perform their intended functions. As a result you eliminate downtime, your IT infrastructure operates more efficiently, and the performance of your network applications and servers are improved.
