Website Source, Inc., is taking a proactive approach to protect its network against DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks. The Texas-based web hosting company has recently acquired two Cisco ASA 5500 Series security appliances.

A key component of the Cisco self-defending network, the Cisco ASA 5500 Series will result in increased network speed as well as security performance. Together with Website Source's DDoS Protection Suite, they provide Website Source with one of the most secure networks in the web hosting industry.

According to a March 2006 Symantec report, http://www.symantec.com/about/news/release/article.jsp?prid=20060307_01 cybercrime is increasing. In particular, the trend is for attackers to use bot networks for DDoS attempts to extort confidential information. DDoS attacks can target specific websites or whole servers. If they're successful, they impair website performance, cost businesses in lost revenue and in time fixing the damage afterwards, and possibly ruin the business's reputation. With cybercrime as a growing trend, more powerful DDoS tools are expected to be used in the future.

The Website Source hosting network architecture goes beyond simple filtering to stop attacks before they can spread through the network while ensuring that websites continue to function as normal. It detects DDoS attacks, diverts data traffic destined for the target device, analyzes and filters data packets, and forwards good traffic to maintain business continuity.

"While some web hosting companies charge extra for advanced firewall protection, we are happy to offer it with every hosting plan we offer," says Stephanie Rosendahl, Founder and CEO of Website Source. "Our combination of an Advanced Cisco DDoS Protection Suite and two Cisco ASA 5500 Series firewalls results in increased performance and higher security for our clients' websites."
