Prolexic Wins Gold for Security Service Innovations at 2013 Golden Bridge Awards
October 03, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology NewsProlexic, the global leader in Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection services, announced today that it is the Gold Winner in the Security Service Innovations category at the 2013 Golden Bridge Awards for PLXabm SSL, Prolexic's application-based DDoS attack monitoring solution for Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encrypted traffic.
PLXabm SSL adds a hardware security module (HSM) to Prolexic's PLXabm appliance, which resides at a customer site and provides 24/7 visibility into application layer (Layer 7) DDoS attacks. PLXabm solves the challenge of identifying and analyzing encrypted Layer 7 attacks while maintaining the security of the customer's SSL keys. As a result, Prolexic can identify and isolate attacking bots faster, allowing for faster mitigation of encrypted DDoS attacks.
The PLXabm SSL module is compliant with FIPS-140-2 Level 2 key management standards and provides a secure way to decrypt SSL traffic so that the PLXabm appliance can be used for SSL attack detection and analysis. The decryption of traffic is performed in hardware on the HSM, but the SSL keys are always under the customer's control.
"It's an honor to be named a Gold winner and to be recognized for Prolexic's innovation in security services," said Stuart Scholly, president at Prolexic. "An increasing number of enterprises have to comply with stringent privacy and security regulations, and PLXabm SSL makes that possible in the arena of DDoS monitoring."
More than 40 judges representing a broad spectrum of industry voices from around the world participated and their average scores determined who would receive the 2013 Golden Bridge Business and Innovation Awards. The winners were honored at a dinner and presentation on September 30, 2013, in San Francisco attended by the finalists, industry leaders and judges.
