Dubai, United Arab Emirates, November 28, 2011: FVC, the leading Value Added Distributor in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), has signed a partnership agreement with Prolexic, the global leader in Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection services. This service fits FVC’s vision to bring emerging Cloud based applications and information security services into the MENA region.
K.S. Parag, Managing Director at FVC, said, “Information security is one of our key technology areas. DDoS mitigation as a service from Prolexic is a very valuable addition for our partners and their enterprise customers. Prolexic brings the highest levels of expertise, experience and flexibility to the region.”
As organisations look to continuously increase their online footprint, the risk of DDoS attack increases, eating into profitability for industries like financial services, online gaming, e-Commerce and many others. DDoS attacks are constantly evolving so it’s important for enterprise and network managers to stay up-to-date on the latest trends, tools and techniques. Prolexic offers 24 hour/365 day support and a time to mitigateSLA.
“DDoS attacks are already originating from and targeting legitimate businesses in the Middle East andNorth Africa,” said Matt Payne, vice president EMEA sales at Prolexic. “Basic mitigation services from ISPs, telcos and content delivery networks only offer limited protection against larger, complex attacks, which is why Prolexic’s services are becoming essential to protect web site availability and e-Commerce revenues.”
Prolexic cautions organizations with an online presence that the magnitude of recent global DDoS attacks is confirmation that attacks are escalating in size and complexity as documented in Prolexic’s Q3 2011 global attack mitigation report, which can be accessed at http://www.prolexic.com/attackreports.
As the first point of contact in the region, FVC will deploy dedicated sales and technical resources in MENA region.
