Sean Newman, Director Product Management at Corero Network Security:

“With reports of more high-profile disruptions over the week-end, it’s somewhat bemusing why some providers of online gaming platforms appear to still accept a certain air of inevitability when it comes to suffering as the result of DDoS attacks.  With solutions available which can protect against DDoS automatically, and in real-time, help is at hand to keep games online, avoid lag, and ensure that player confidence and bottom lines, are preserved.”
