Phase 2 Chooses Corero As Its First Line Of Defense

Corero Network Security (CNS: LN), the leading global provider of Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Defense and Next Generation Network Intrusion Prevention Systems (NGIPS) today announced Hawaii-based Phase 2, a leading software-as-a-service (SaaS) and hardened infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) provider, has selected Corero to provide its first line of defense at its data centers.

For Phase 2, which hosts IBM and Microsoft business software, serving the federal and enterprise markets, fortress-like security is paramount. Client applications must be secured and available without bug or defect 100 percent of the time. To augment its already robust IT infrastructure and ensure availability, Phase 2 turned to Corero Network Security.

“We take our responsibility to protect our customers’ data very seriously,” said Kevin Doherty, president of Phase 2. “We want our customers to enjoy an uninterrupted, trouble-free and secure customer experience, 100 percent of the time, and Corero helps us deliver that level of service.”

Recently, Phase 2 began noticing a significant increase in incoming cyber threats and decided to enhance its existing defense systems. After evaluating several different solutions on the market, Phase 2 selected Corero.

“Before Corero was in place, we were getting alerts from our firewalls about targeted attacks three or four times a day,” Doherty said. “Now, with Corero as our first line of defense, we are stopping those attacks in their tracks and significantly reducing the burden on other border devices.”

Corero’s appliance-based solutions defend organizations, stopping attacks and eliminating downtime.

"We are pleased that Corero is enabling Phase 2 to help meet its mission of providing the highest and most secure level of service to its customers,” said Marty Meyer, CEO of Corero Network Security. "With Corero providing the first line of defense, Phase 2’s robust security infrastructure can do what it was intended to do – not only ensuring availability and protecting Phase 2’s clients but enabling Phase 2 to maximize its IT investment.”
