I am excited to announce that Juniper Networks has acquired the assets of Webscreen Systems, a leader in Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) mitigation solutions from Accumuli plc. DDoS attacks on data centers continue to increase in both scale and complexity – ranging from massive volumetric attacks to sophisticated and difficult-to-detect advanced persistent threat (APT) attacks. Webscreen has developed a track record for its unique behavior-based approach to DDoS mitigation that effectively protects against both high volume and APT attacks. With this acquisition, Juniper gains an advanced DDoS solution that will enhance Juniper’s data center security portfolio and enable us to offer customers a unique, fully automated DDoS protection system for websites and web applications.
Exploring the vision for the networking industry and the issues shaping its future.
