Incapsula Named an Information Security Magazine and 2014 Readers' Choice Award Winner

DDoS Protection Service Receives Highest Honors in the "Denial of Service Protection" Category

REDWOOD SHORES, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 9, 2014) - Incapsula, an Imperva company providing cloud-based website security and performance services, today announced that its DDoS Protection Service has been named "Denial of Service Protection Readers' Choice Award Winner" in the Information Security Magazine™ and 2014 Readers' Choice Awards. This award was based on an extensive, in-depth survey of Information Security Magazine and readers, which included more than 1,700 information security executives and managers, who were asked to assess and rate products deployed within their organizations from a listing of more than 400 products spanning 22 product categories. 

As noted in Information Security Magazine, "Incapsula DDoS Protection received high marks from readers for its vendor service and support, as well as its ability to mitigate Layer 3 network attacks, including SYN floods and other IP-related compromises. Readers also applauded [the Company's] ability to mitigate application and protocol layer attacks. The product handles application, infrastructure and DNS attacks against all types of services, including UDP/TCP, SMTP, FTP, SSH, VoIP and more. Incapsula protection can be set up to work 24/7 or on-demand."

DDoS attacks are becoming a favored tool of malicious hackers, and increased by 240 percent1 between early 2013 and early 2014, based on a review of websites using Incapsula's DDoS Mitigation service. Over the past twelve months, Incapsula has made major investments in strengthening its DDoS protection service to protect its customers from the effects of these large-scale attacks.

"Receiving this prestigious award validates our efforts in creating the best DDoS mitigation tools for businesses large and small. With the rollout of our Behemoth servers and new DNS Protocol and Infrastructure Protection Services in the past year, we're working to protect our customers against this increasingly sophisticated threat," said Marc Gaffan, CEO of Incapsula. "It is an honor to be recognized by a panel of information security executives and managers who have first-hand experience deploying our services within their organizations."
