UK provider of real-time, automatic Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) cyber defence products, Corero Network Security plc, has teamed up with OneQode.
The Amersham-based firm hopes it will help bolster their latency-sensitive online gaming experience by implementing Corero’s award-winning DDoS protection solution.
As a specialist provider of high-performance cloud and network infrastructure for esports and multiplayer gaming, OneQode prioritise the user experience above all.
DDoS attacks are rampant in the online gaming industry, and these attacks ultimately ruin the gaming experience for players.
DDoS attacks can break the immersion and cause players to leave games in droves.
For game developers, that means fewer players enjoying the game, a frustrated community, and a possible loss of in-game revenue.
Protecting gaming companies against these kind of potentially disruptive attacks is something that Corero has extensive and longstanding experience in.
OneQode knew tha it needed to find a cybersecurity partner to deliver a DDoS protection solution which could keep pace with their network, and enable them to maintain uninterrupted, low-latency connectivity, even in the face of high throughput DDoS attacks.
This is where Corero shined the brightest amongst all the providers OneQode looked at to neutralise DDoS attacks in real-time and avoid any downtime while their traffic is being analyzed.
By being positioned at the network edge, the Corero SmartWall® solution ensures OneQode has an always-on, automatic detect and mitigate service that thwarts attacks in real-time.
In addition, OneQode’s infrastructure supports many of the 1.45 billion gamers across the entire Asia Pacific (APAC) region, the world’s largest geographical spread of gamers.
These hundreds of millions of gaming customers demand ultra-low latency connectivity with zero downtime.
Some of the features include:
• Delivers line-rate, always-on attack protection, as part of a solution that scales to tens of terabits per second of protected throughput.
• Inspects every inbound packet header and payload data, surgically removing the DDoS packets without disrupting the delivery of legitimate network traffic.
•Ensures that their legitimate traffic is not impacted by false positives
•Provides comprehensive forensic-level analysis before, during, and after attacks.
Lionel Chmilewsky, CEO of Corero Network Security said: “We are very pleased to be working with OneQode. esports and eGaming have become increasingly irresistible targets for DDoS attackers and with such high stakes, we’re proud to be delivering a solution that doesn’t just detect and mitigate DDoS attacks but stops them in their tracks to safeguard the gaming platforms and ensure that players can play on.”
