Comguard, NSFOCUS team up to battle DDoS
Jayadevan: Businesses will be able to analyse and divert abnormal traffic before it has an opportunity to interfere with normal business functionality.

Dubai-based security VAD Comguard on Wednesday announced that it has signed a distribution agreement with network security provider, NSFOCUS to offer its Anti-DDoS System to defend businesses in Middle East and North Africa region (including Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Morocco, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, UAE) against DDoS attacks.

"Today's DDoS attacks are more virulent, more destructive, and more focused than ever," said Comguard.

"They can easily elude and overwhelm most common defenses. Composed of legitimate-appearing requests, spoofed identities, huge volumes, etc., these highly sophisticated attacks are virtually impossible to identify and block. DDoS attacks paralyse 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 SMEs, enterprises and carrier-class service providers against damaging DDoS attacks. Comguard claims ADS not only defends against but also cleans attack traffic to allow critical business functions to continue.

"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," said Comguard.

 "The DDoS menace has been affecting several businesses in the region," said Jayadevan K, senior vice president, Value Business at Comguard.

"Now with this award-winning anti-DDoS solution ADS from NSFOCUS, businesses will be able to analyse 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," said Felix Cheng, regional representative from NSFOCUS.

"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."
