Prolexic, the global leader in distributed denial of service (DDoS) protection services, announced today that it is now providing DDoS detection and DDoS protection to PayPro Global, a leading Canadian software distribution service.
Headquartered in Toronto, PayPro Global hosts an e-Commerce infrastructure for software developers worldwide. Last November, the secure HTTPS payment transaction servers supporting payproglobal.com were taken offline for hours as a result of a Layer 7 distributed denial of service DDoS attack. During that time, PayPro Global's worldwide customer base of software developers could not generate revenue. This followed a previous DDoS attack launched against the site in the third quarter.
"The DDoS attacks against PayPro Global are proof that practically anyone can launch a DDoS attack these days," said Stuart Scholly, president at Prolexic. "As a Prolexic customer, PayPro Global is now fully protected against all types and sizes of distributed denial of service attacks, whether from an individual or a well-organized group of cybercriminals with significant botnet resources."
"After exploring and testing numerous options on the market we chose Prolexic as its DDoS protection system showed the best results in repelling cyber-attacks," said Matthew Silverman, CEO of PayPro Global. "We are confident that through the partnership with Prolexic, downtime will become ancient history for our company."
"We have been attacked several times since bringing Prolexic on board, but our site never went down," said Valeriu Braghis, marketing manager at PayPro Global. "Prolexic was successful against every DDoS attack. It is important for us to give our customers the confidence that they are no longer at risk of revenue loss due to a DDoS attack and Prolexic does that."
