Earlier, Hexatom used a rate-based solution provided by its telecom carriers. The company faced its first major attack in June after taking on a gaming company as a client affecting the gaming company targeted and all the neighboring clients in the data center.
Radware ensured an in-house and automated attack mitigation solution that includes patent protected behavioral based real-time signatures technology to detect and mitigate emerging network attacks without the need for human intervention and without blocking legitimate user traffic.
“We wanted an on-premises solution to complement the protection we already had in place with our carriers,” said Emmanuel Vannier, Hexatom.
