Comguard, a Dubai-based leading value-added distributor for IT security products, a part of Spectrum group today announced that it has signed a distribution agreement with world’s leading active perimeter network security provider, NSFOCUS to offer its Anti-DDoS System to defend and prevent businesses in Middle East and North Africa region (including Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Morocco, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, UAE) from DDoS attacks.
Today’s DDoS attacks are more virulent, more destructive, and more focused than ever. They can easily elude and overwhelm most common defenses. Composed of legitimate-appearing requests, spoofed identities, huge volumes, etc., these highly sophisticated attacks make it virtually impossible to identify and block. DDoS attacks paralyze their targets, prevent them from conducting business, and cost companies billions of dollars in lost revenue every year.
Comguard now offers Anti-DDoS System (ADS) from NSFOCUS that is designed to defend SME’s, enterprises as well as carrier-class service providers against damaging DDoS attacks. The ADS not only defends against but also cleans attack traffics to allow critical business functions to continue, keeping your business running, even under the most determined of attacks.
Equipped with a purpose-built operating system and integrating advanced anomaly recognition, source verification, and anti-spoofing technologies, ADS delivers robust and comprehensive anti-DDoS protection to businesses of all sizes.
Recently NSFOCUS have been awarded the VERAFIED security mark and Level 4 rating (HIGH) for its Anti-DDoS System (ADS) by Veracode, Inc., the only independent provider of cloud-based application intelligence and security verification services. Level 4 rating from Veracode confirms that the software has been tested against OWASP Top 10 and SANS Top 25 technical flaws, which is a clear indicator to the robustness of the ADS and demonstrates the inherent safety of the product. The company’s dedication to security can further assure a high degree of security level that can protect a company’s assets and reputation against DDoS attacks.
Jayadevan K, Senior Vice President, Value Business at Comguard, said, “DDoS menace has been affecting several businesses in the region. Now with this award winning anti-DDoS solution ADS from NSFOCUS, businesses will be able to analyze and divert abnormal traffic, whether network or application-layer based, before it has an opportunity to interfere with normal business functionality.”
“Over the past two years, we at NSFOCUS have been paying a lot of attention to the Middle East market. More business opportunities emerged as DDoS attacks grow rampant in the region. With this new partnership with Comguard, both our sales force and local presence would be significantly extended. Together with our partner, it will be very exciting to help our customers with the DDoS issue while adding to their success by creating new value based on our offering,” commented, Felix Cheng, regional representative from NSFOCUS.
The new partnership with NSFOCUS authorizes Comguard to distribute Anti-DDos System across the Middle East and North Africa region. Channel partners and businesses hailing from UAE, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Qatar, Bahrain, and Kuwait among others can now avail this Anti-DDoS solution to secure their systems from DDoS attacks.
