Radware®, a leading provider of cyber security and application delivery solutions ensuring optimal service levels for applications in virtual, cloud, and software-defined data centers, announced that XO Communications (XO), a leading enterprise ISP, has launched a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Mitigation Service as part of its Security Services product portfolio, based on Radware’s Attack Mitigation System. Radware will help protect XO’s data centers from network security threats and provide XO’s customers with value added DDoS Mitigation Service.
Headquartered in Herndon, Va., XO (xo.com) owns and operates one of the largest, high-quality IP and Ethernet networks that customers rely on for their domestic and international communications. According to XO, customers choose XO Communications because of the quality and reach of its network, the breadth of its innovative products and services, and the personalized, consultative approach it employs to support customer needs.
The recent addition of Radware’s DDoS Mitigation Services to the XO Security Services product portfolio provides XO customers an essential component of sound security practices recommended by cyber-defense experts to help mitigate crippling network attacks. With XO DDoS Mitigation Service, customers avoid unplanned and potentially exorbitant costs should their network come under a DDoS attack.
“In seeking to provide the best options for our customers, we sought a provider that could help us deliver a comprehensive DDoS Mitigation solution,” said Eric Points, director of product management for XO Communications. “Radware enables us to differentiate the services we provide by offering the mitigation services our customers need. Radware’s solution enhances attack response and plays well with third-party detection tools. Its high mitigation capacity and packet-per-second protections fit our needs, and it can continue to scale as we grow moving forward.”
“XO provides mission-critical network access to businesses that move at the speed of data,” said Bob Simpson, vice president of sales, west for the Americas for Radware. “Its clients can’t afford to go down, and with the pace of attacks increasing, it needed automated DDoS mitigation that can handle the most massive strikes. With Radware, XO enables its customers to pursue their business goals without fear of hackers shutting down their network.”
