including a dual web application firewall, DDoS protection, bot
management, and real-time analytics and reporting –

LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Verizon Digital Media Services today announced it has added a
round-the-clock managed cloud security offering as part of its global
Cloud Security Solution. The managed cloud security component provides
access to expert security professionals who monitor and proactively take
corrective action against the latest security threats, no matter the
time of day. The addition of this offering complements features
previously available within Verizon Digital Media Services’ leading
Cloud Security Solution, including a dual web application firewall
(WAF), distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) protection, bot management,
and real-time analytics and reporting.

“Any security threat or vulnerability is a distraction of resources and
valuable time for a business,” said Frank Orozco, Chief Technology
Officer for Verizon Digital Media Services. “By leveraging our managed
cloud security feature, our customers can now lean on our dedicated
security teams to monitor and protect their web and mobile applications,
so they can concentrate on growing their business.”

The managed cloud security offering provides continuous security support
from a dedicated Computer Security Incident Response Team. Based in
Verizon’s Security Operations Center, the team provides 24×7 monitoring
and mitigation. Additionally, the Cloud Security Advisory Team from
Verizon Digital Media Services, which manages WAF and HTTP Rate Limiting
configurations, provides planning support and recommendations to ensure
maximum protection throughout web application changes.

Additional Cloud Security Solution features include:

  • One of the largest cloud security networks with advanced HTTP Rate
    Limiting to absorb the largest DDoS attacks, while maintaining
    application or mobile performance;
  • Robust origin protection to defend against direct-to-origin DDoS
    attacks;
  • A unique dual WAF capability empowering customers to maintain
    protection on a previously approved rule while simultaneously testing
    new rules — both against production traffic. This WAF is complete with
    custom rulesets that can be updated instantly to help businesses stay
    on top of the most current threats;
  • Advanced botnet detection and mitigation, powered by Distil Networks,
    which leverages fingerprinting technology to isolate botnet attacks
    while enabling legitimate users continued access;
  • Real-time analytics and reporting to monitor and deliver alerts on
    live threats and attacks within seconds of occurrence.
