NSFOCUS Unveils Robust Anti-DDoS Solution for Hosting Service Providers, Date Centers and MSSPs

leave a comment »

-ADS 8000 Series DDoS Mitigation Solution Provides Layered DDoS Protection To Enable Secure Ecosystem

SINGAPORE /PRNewswire/ — Rapid bandwidth expansion of network infrastructure, combined with significant innovations in hardware technology capabilities, have enabled ever more powerful server processing performance – and more invasive Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attack tactics and methods. NSFOCUS, Inc. today announced the launch of the ADS 8000 series, an active DDoS attack mitigation appliance that defends against both known and unknown attacks and is specifically designed for hosting service providers, Internet data centers (IDCs), telecom carriers and managed security service providers (MSSPs).

Expanding threat vectors:

  • Volumetric, amplification and application layer attacks: DDoS attack tactics and tools have become more instrumental and diversified while multi-vector attacks have recently emerged. DNS and NTP amplification attacks pose grave threats to Internet commerce, while application-layer attacks are one of the leading causes of modern security threats and continue to grow exponentially.
  • High-value targets: IDCs, hosting service providers and MSSPs provide pools of opportunity for these attacks, given the massive websites and other diversified applications that they host, such as online gaming and e-commerce. An emerging strategy is to incorporate DDoS appliances into the network, not only to protect brand reputation but also to provide end users with a security-as-a-service product that can be added to existing go-to-market strategies, increasing business benefits and ROI.

ADS 8000 Series key benefits include:

  • Best-in-class protection performance: Supports up to 40Gbps of mitigation capacity with a single unit and provides hundreds of Gbps of larger scalable mitigation capacity via simple cluster deployment.
  • Precise mitigation and up-to-the-minute protection: Optimizes DDoS behavior statistics, reputation mechanisms and mitigation algorithms targeted at new botnet-based DDoS attacks, providing a more granular and precise DDoS mitigation. Continuous software upgrades defend against newly discovered threats and provide integrated protection for both software and hardware. Coupled with the support of NSFOCUS’s 24/7 rapid-response security teams, providers are able to deliver continuous service availability to end-users.
  • Ease of management: Single-pane-of-glass, centralized management device console enhances the mitigation scalability for either a single cluster at a single point or multi-clusters deployed cross-regionally around the world. The anti-DDoS solution automatically adjusts defense levels and alert policies to match the variations and business characteristics of individual companies and their security operations teams, saving time and money.

Yonggang Han, chief operating officer of global business, NSFOCUS, said, “In selecting an IDC or MSSP, a customer’s primary concerns are about security, data protection and uninterrupted service. Customers demand that illegal access be blocked and that there be no interruption of legitimate traffic to their sites. NSFOCUS’s optimized hardware and software designs apply the behavioral statistics and reputation mechanisms to defense against more sophisticated DDoS attacks, enabling a secure ecosystem for hosting providers, IDCs and MSSPs.”

About NSFOCUS

NSFOCUS is a global provider of distributed denial of service (DDoS) mitigation solutions. Founded in 2000, the company provides enterprise-level, carrier-grade solutions for DDoS mitigation, Web security and enterprise-level network security. With more than a decade of years’ experience in DDoS research and development and mitigation, NSFOCUS has helped customers around the world maintain high levels of Internet security, website uptime and business operations to ensure that their online systems remain available. The NSFOCUS Anti-DDoS System (ADS) empowers customers to find and fend off a variety of incidents, from simple network layer attacks to more sophisticated and potentially damaging application-layer attacks, all while guaranteeing legitimate traffic gets through to networks and corporate-critical systems.

Beyoncé – in MESSIKA JOAILLERIE, Paris

leave a comment »

PARIS  /PRNewswire/ –

The House of MESSIKA JOAILLERIE PARIS is pleased to present singer Beyonce wearing precious jewelry pieces by Valerie Messika.

To view the Multimedia News Release, please click:
http://www.multivu.com/players/English/72762572-beyonce-messika-joaillerie-paris/

For her Parisian family trip, Beyonce wears two MESSIKA iconic pieces: the Move Jewelry XL ring and Glam’Azone double ring, in diamonds and 18kt gold.

For her private tour of The Louvre with her lovely family, Beyonce chose to enjoy her brand new MESSIKA Glam’Azone ring. This iconic piece, inspired by the myth of the Amazons, chimed perfectly with Queen B’s independence, strength and sensuality. Snapping photos while surrounded by iconic works of art, Beyonce also Instagrammed her ring in front of the Mona Lisa, Leonardo da Vinci’s most famous painting.

It was also on the occasion of a fashionable family trip to London that Beyonce made a statement by piecing her MESSIKA Glam’Azone ring with a Move Jewelry XL ring. She beautifully reinterprets the three movable diamonds of the Move ring, symbolizing the love of yesterday, today and tomorrow.

Move Jewellery Collection:

Designed in a contemporary and haute couture style, Move Jewellery is one of Messika’s signature collections. The three movable diamonds symbolize the love of yesterday, today and tomorrow. Classic, elegant and somewhat rock’n’roll, the Move Jewellery collection fulfils every desire and complements every look.

Glam’ Azone Collection:

Messika has imbued the Glam’Azone collection with the spirit of the free female conqueror. Based on the idea of the Amazon arrow and lance, the jewellery features a slender line ending in an oval cut diamond, surrounded by other, smaller stones, like a shield, symbolizing strength and vitality.

9 Ways to Cut Through Clutter to Reach Your Consumer

leave a comment »

NEW YORK /PRNewswire/ — Standing out from the marketing clutter is an even greater challenge for smaller companies looking to break through in the marketplace. The key is finding unique ways to be heard above the crowd and to promote your products and services in a way that your audience will not quickly tune out. Content consumers want substance and if you take the wrong approach the noise online will only become louder.

Penny C. Sansevieri, CEO and founder of Author Marketing Experts, Inc. understands the challenges that marketers face when trying to reach their consumer and she suggests you do the following:

  • Stay on Message. Identify your key points and stick to them. Keep the message as targeted as possible.
  • Content Fatigue. Don’t inundate your audience with daily messages. Determine where your fans draw the line and deliver either weekly or monthly messages accordingly.
  • Keep it Light.  Your audience wants answers, substance and inspiration. Don’t focus on the negative.
  • Engagement. Uncover ways your fans can participate in your promotions. Thinking creatively and outside the box will only increase your customers’ participation.
  • Authenticity.  In an era of automation, a personal touch will go a long way. The more you authentically engage with your audience the larger your fan base will grow.
