Radware®, a leading provider of cyber security and application delivery solutions ensuring optimal service level for applications in virtual, cloud and software defined data centers, announced that Hexatom has selected Radware’s Attack Mitigation System for DDoS, SSL and Web-based attack protection.
Headquartered in Vélizy (Paris area), Hexatom (hexatom.fr) is France’s leading IaaS (Infrastructure As A Service) Managed Service Provider (MSP). They offer a wide range of services from colocation and managed hosting services to storage, backup and disaster recovery and virtualization.
Prior to selecting Radware, Hexatom depended upon a rate-based solution provided by its carriers. The company experienced its first major attack in June after taking on a gaming company as a client. Despite the carrier-based solution they had in place, this attack significantly affected not only the gaming company targeted, but also all the neighboring clients in the data center.
Hexatom turned to Radware because they needed an in-house, comprehensive and automated attack mitigation solution of their own. Radware's Attack Mitigation System consists of patent protected behavioral based real-time signatures technology that accurately detects and mitigates emerging network attacks all without the need for human intervention and without blocking legitimate user traffic. Helping manage this process is a centralized attack management, monitoring and reporting solution that provides real-time identification, and response to these attacks.
“We wanted an on-premises solution to complement the protection we already had in place with our carriers,” said Emmanuel Vannier, Hexatom. “We selected Radware because of its unique detection and mitigation capabilities, the comprehensive protection against DDoS, SSL and Web-based attack, and the total cost of ownership.”
With just a few months into production, Hexatom has faced non volumetric attacks and thanks to Radware’s Attack Mitigation System, these attacks have been fully blocked. In fact, Hexatom has since launched a successful new business by providing enhanced DDoS with WAF-based services for their customers based on this integration. This protection service is proposed to several types of customers: customers hosted on Hexatom IaaS infrastructure, customers of sister company GREEN DATA CENTER (3000m² neutral DataCenter owner) and even customers outside of Hexatom/GDC footprint through the new “Scrubbing Center Service” launched this month.
“Hexatom successfully transformed an expensive operational cost into a successful new revenue stream,” said Jean Charles Labbat, Regional Director of France for Radware. “They were able to meet and exceed the attack mitigation needs of their customers, and they also successfully built a profitable high margin new service.”
