Verisign Releases Uptime Bundle Including DDoS Protection, Managed DNS and Threat Intelligence Services

Mar 31, 2011 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- VeriSign, a provider of Internet infrastructure services for the networked world, has introduced the company's Verisign Uptime Bundle, a new service bundle that combines protection from Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks with Verisign's Domain Name System (DNS) hosting, and threat intelligence service.

Together, the three bundled cloud-based services help improve the performance, security and availability of websites, email, and critical network services. The Verisign Uptime Bundle is designed to minimize costly downtime for some of the most likely targets of malicious attacks, including online retailers, financial services firms, providers of cloud-based solutions and hosted applications, media and content providers, and online advertising and entertainment companies.

"Businesses can no longer rely on a single line of defense to ensure the availability of web sites and applications under all conditions," said Ben Petro, senior VP of the Verisign Network Intelligence and Availability business. "Our multi-layered solution offers the best way to detect and disarm an attack before substantial losses occur. With the Verisign Uptime Bundle, we're making it easier to maintain availability with services at a price that many competitors charge for DNS hosting alone." The Verisign Uptime Bundle combines three offerings: - Verisign Managed DNS is a cloud-based hosting service that helps improve the availability of Web-based systems by delivering DNS resolution with a 100 percent SLA.

- Verisign Internet Defense Network (VIDN) provides protection from DDoS attacks by detecting and filtering malicious traffic before it reaches the network.

- Verisign iDefense Security Intelligence Services offers real-time access to accurate and actionable cyber intelligence related to vulnerabilities, malicious code and global threats.

The Verisign Uptime Bundle features four pricing and service packages to meet the needs of a variety of organizations. All four packages provide mitigation for two DDoS attacks of varying sizes annually and access to real-time email updates from iDefense about high-severity security risks.
