Corero wins new SmartWall contracts

Corero Network Security's SmartWall threat defence system 100Gbps technology has been selected by two North American customers, a service provider and a hosting provider, to deliver real-time DDoS protection to their respective end-customers. The combined customer orders are worth in excess of $400,000 for SmartWall products and related one-year support services.

Corero president and EVP sales and marketing, Andrew Lloyd, said: 'These customer wins mark an important milestone for our SmartWall product.

'We see growing adoption of 100Gbps connections, which in turn is driving demand for our SmartWall NTD1100 product.

'We expect this demand for our unique technology to accelerate in 2018 as these faster 100Gbps links combined with increasing end-user service-level expectations require a DDoS mitigation technology refresh.

'Corero is well placed to service these needs and to benefit from this trend.'
