HOLLYWOOD, FL: Prolexic, the global leader in Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection services has announced that it has introduced a number of enhancements to its customer gateway, PLXportal. These include an expanded user dashboard, additional real-time views of network activity, new views of global DDoS threat intelligence, and optimization for viewing on tablets, smartphones and other mobile devices.

PLXportal is a secure online resource that gives Prolexic customers a real-time view of what is happening on their network and Prolexic’s DDoS mitigation network before, during, and after a denial of service attack. Prolexic customers can also access real-time and near real-time DDoS intelligence and alerts provided by the Prolexic Security Engineering and Response Team (PLXsert). There is also a robust set of account management tools, including a secure wizard to upload SSL encryption keys to Prolexic for encrypted Layer 7 DDoS attack mitigation.

"This latest iteration of PLXportal provides our customers with the broadest and deepest attack forensics and network data in the industry that is updated in real-time, which is unprecedented,” said Stuart Scholly, president at Prolexic. “Because of this unique level of visibility, we can work more efficiently with our clients to detect and mitigate DDoS attacks faster.”

“Seconds count when defending against DDoS attacks,” Scholly said. “That’s why Prolexic is committed to continually updating PLXportal with additional views and more granular DDoS threat data that is far beyond what other mitigation providers can offer.”
