Akamai Debuts Kona Site Defender
Akamai is introducing Kona Site Defender, a mitigation service for distributed denial-of-service attacks. In providing automatic protection against network layer attacks, Kona also provides real-time visibility and the ability to drill down into attack alerts to retrieve detailed information on why an attack was declared, the defense capabilities that triggered the attack declaration and what was seen in the requests that triggered site defenses. Kona Site Defender is scheduled to be generally available April 11. Pricing starts at $15,000.
