Incapsula Unveils Real Time Event Monitoring for Improved DDoS Protection

Real-Time Data Feeds and Reporting Provide Unprecedented Visibility for Instant Mitigation of Attacks and Optimized Application Delivery

REDWOOD SHORES, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 19, 2013) - Incapsula, a cloud-based website security and performance service, today announced Real Time Event Monitoring, real-time data feeds and reporting capabilities that further bolster DDoS protection for Incapsula customers. The new feature empowers customers with real-time visibility into security events, and server load distribution, for instant mitigation of attacks, as well as optimized website and application delivery. 

"When dealing with security, every second counts," said Gur Shatz, Incapsula CEO. "In the case of DDoS attacks, where attackers switch sources and introduce new attack methods on the fly, one minute old data is stale data. In such scenarios the defenders must have a live data stream available to provide an organization's security team the extra edge it needs to combat even the most agile attackers."

Real Time Event Monitoring collects and aggregates large quantities of traffic data from multiple data centers across the globe. This new capability analyzes and classifies traffic in real time, and re-packages it as a unified stream -- all in matter of milliseconds. With this information, customers can make real-time, data-driven decisions about both security events and server load distribution.

"The Real Time Event Monitoring feature is a great addition to Incapsula's dashboard," said Marcus Adolfsson, CEO of MobileNations. "The multiple views option provides us with instant and complete visibility into the human and bot traffic to our websites, enabling us to stay on top of security events and improve resource utilization. This is also where we can see Incapsula in action and assess its value in mitigating security incidents and DDoS attacks."

Outside of security events, Real Time Event Monitoring also enhances Incapsula's load balancing capabilities by providing live traffic distribution data to improve server monitoring and load balancing deployment. Using the live stream, Incapsula users can analyze traffic patterns and load distribution, both globally and per server. With this real-time information, the operator can make configuration changes to optimize application delivery and avoid potential bottlenecks and overloading servers.
