The Global Leader in DDoS Protection and Mitigation
CAMBRIDGE, MA and HOLLYWOOD, FL – December 02, 2013 – Akamai Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: AKAM) and Prolexic Technologies, Inc. announced today that the two companies have signed a definitive agreement for Akamai to acquire Prolexic, a provider of cloud-based security solutions for protecting data centers and enterprise IP applications from distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks.
It’s a fact. Prolexic, now a part of Akamai is the world’s largest and most trusted distributed denial of service (DDoS) mitigation service provider. We successfully block the biggest and most complex DoS and DDoS denial of service attacks that often overwhelm other vendors. And we typically do it in minutes. In an industry full of DDoS protection service providers making big promises, only Prolexic has the expertise, experience and track record to detect and stop all DDoS attacks. That’s why DDoS attacks end here.
