Charleston, SC (PRWEB) October 16, 2013
PhishLabs, the leading provider of cybercrime protection and intelligence services that fight back against online threats, announces new enhancements to their DDoS Intelligence Service. Featuring an online portal and API integration capabilities, the upgraded DDoS Intelligence Service provides the actionable, real-time information organizations need to proactively protect against specific distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) botnet threats.
Many organizations, including leading financial institutions, have subscribed to PhishLabs' DDoS Intelligence Service since its initial release in early 2013. The enhanced service includes detailed intelligence on DDoS threats, including attacks being launched and the attack code being used to flood targeted sites.
“Response to our DDoS Intelligence Service has been very positive,” said John LaCour, PhishLabs Founder and Chief Executive Officer. “The new enhancements give our clients the intelligence and visibility they need to proactively implement effective defenses before they are attacked.”
On October 22, PhishLabs is hosting an informative webinar entitled “Intelligent DDoS Protection: Using Threat Intelligence to Protect Against DDoS Attacks.” In this live webinar, Founder and CEO John LaCour will examine modern DDoS threats and how intelligence can be applied to improve protection.

Organizations targeted by DDoS threats, including companies that have implemented DDoS mitigation services and tools, have found that better threat intelligence improves their ability to resist major DDoS attacks. PhishLabs' DDoS Intelligence Service provides detailed insight into specific threats, such as the organizations being targeted and the attack code used against them, which is needed to assess risk and make the right preparations prior to attack.
When an attack is launched targeting a DDoS Intelligence Service client, they receive immediate notification followed by expert Flash Analysis of the attack from the PhishLabs Research Team. This enables clients to quickly initiate response and mitigation plans instead of waiting for the attack to be discovered by internal monitoring systems or reports of poor site performance. Using the DDoS Intelligence Service, organizations minimize the window of time between an attack being launched and it being successfully mitigated.
