StarLink links Prolexic for the region

The Channel Post Staff
StarLink signed a strategic alliance with the leaders in Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection services, Prolexic Technologies to represent Prolexic in the MENA region and provide an additional sales channel for the company's monitoring and mitigation services. A DDoS attack is an attempt to make a computer resource (i.e. web site, e-mail, voice, or a whole network) unavailable to its intended users. By overwhelming a web site and/or server with data and/or requests, the target system either responds so slowly as to be unusable or crashes completely. The data volumes required to do this are typically achieved by a network of remotely controlled Zombie or botnet [robot network] computers.
