Prolexic Routed

Managed DDoS protection service for the entire data center

Prolexic Routed provides broad protection against Denial-of-Service (DoS) and Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attacks. Built on Akamai's globally distributed Intelligent Platform, Prolexic Routed can stop DDoS attacks for entire IP subnets, including hundreds of web- and IP-based applications, supporting network and data center infrastructure, and even the network bandwidth into the data center. Prolexic Routed uses the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) to route all of an organization's network traffic through Akamai's global scrubbing centers. Cybersecurity experts in Akamai's security operations center (SOC) then inspect the traffic for potential attack vectors, drop detected attack traffic, and forward clean traffic to the application and data center. This managed DDoS protection service delivers expert DDoS mitigation against the broadest range of DoS and DDoS attacks, including sustained, high-bandwidth attacks reaching hundreds of gigabits per second (Gbps). Prolexic Routed comes with an industry-leading time-to-mitigate service level agreement (SLA) and can help organizations stop DDoS attacks at all hours, every day of the year.
