Prolexic Launches New Public Service: PLXpatrol

Provides security community with instant global view of DDoS threats

HOLLYWOOD, Fla., Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Prolexic, the global leader in Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection services, announced today that it has introduced PLXpatrol, a public service that the world's security community can leverage to gain an instant global snapshot of current denial of service (DoS) and DDoS threats and activity.  The complimentary service is available at www.prolexic.com/plxpatrol and no registration is required.

In addition to mitigating the largest and most sophisticated attacks against its global client base, Prolexic typically mitigates more attacks than any other DDoS protection provider.  As many of the company's clients are from the high-risk online gaming and financial services industries, Prolexic also faces emerging threats earlier than other providers, making it an ideal resource for unbiased DDoS threat intelligence

"PLXpatrol is an invaluable service for the world's cyber security community," said Stuart Scholly, president of Prolexic.  "Staying up-to-date and informed about threats is the best defense against DDoS attacks and PLXpatrol now makes that incredibly easy."

At launch, PLXpatrol offers three distinct data views:

  • Attack Tracker – Continuously updated, this view shows where DDoS attacks directed against Prolexic's clients are originating from and geographic locations of targets (anonymized).  Attack Tracker also displays the number of source and destination IP addresses involved in the attack.
  • Country Ranking (Last 24 hours) – This ranking shows the countries that have originated the most attack traffic against Prolexic clients over the last 24 hours.
  • Country Ranking (All Time) – This ranking shows the countries that have originated the most attack traffic against Prolexic clients since data collection began in 2009.

"Prolexic already publishes a widely respected Quarterly Global DDoS Attack Report, and while that format and deep analysis still has value, there's nothing like having instant access to data that is updated frequently," said Scholly.  "Over the coming months we plan to roll out many more data views to make PLXpatrol the industry's number one destination for DDoS insight and intelligence."

The information presented in PLXpatrol is sourced from Prolexic's analytical and IP reputational databases.  Prolexic makes this information, and more detailed views, available to its customers in near real-time through the Prolexic Portal.

Prolexic's new PLXpatrol service is available at www.prolexic.com/plxpatrol.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
