HUDSON, Mass. -- September 16, 2013

Corero Network Security (CNS:LN) today announced thatG4BOX INC., a leading
Publisher of Free-to-Play Online Multiplayer Games, selected Corero’s First
Line of Defense solution to safeguard its gaming sites against Distributed
Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks and other unwanted traffic to ensure
availability.

G4BOX was founded in 2006 on the principle that online, community-based video
games offer unique and compelling gaming experiences with untapped mass market
potential and wide social appeal. The company currently offers a growing
portfolio of successful, massive multiplayer online game properties.As a
business that operates completely online, system performance, game
responsiveness and availability are crucial to maintaining a trusted
relationship with its customers. A disruption or slow-down may cause their
customers to go elsewhere to play. G4BOX chose Corero to ensure the protection
of its customers and their online information, as well as continuous
availability and high performance.

“I knew I wanted to bring in the Corero First Line of Defense. I evaluated
other solutions, but they did not compare to Corero, which not only stopped
the network layer and application DDoS attacks but also other unwanted traffic
that we were unaware was hitting us at the perimeter,” said James Kim, who
manages the network infrastructure for both G4BOX and SG Interactive. Kim’s
team had evaluated several DDoS mitigation solutions, including those from
Arbor Networks, RioRey Inc. and Radware Ltd., but none paralleled the
comprehensive protection provided by Corero’s First Line of Defense.

Corero's First Line of Defense was selected because of its proven ability
tostop DDoS attacksand other unwanted traffic at the perimeter. The
company’s solutions are designed to stop both known and unknown attacks,
before they reach the firewall, freeing the existing IT infrastructure to do
what it was designed to do.

With the Corero solution in place, G4BOX has not suffered downtime from DDoS
attacks. Kim can see from security reports that the attack attempts continue,
but to no avail. “The attackers keep trying to get to us, but their tactics
are blocked automatically. They don’t quit, but they aren’t hurting us. Even
as they shift their tactics in the future, we are confident that, based on our
experience, Corero’s device will be able to block them,” Kim said. G4BOX also
feels more confident about its relationship with its customers. “Succumbing to
a DDoS attack breaks the trust that our customers have in us,” Kim explained.
“There could be other things happening on the back end that our customers
might worry about, like whether the attack is a smoke screen for data theft.
This concern has gone away now that the attacks are repelled without
repercussion. Customer trust is the strongest asset we have,” Kim added.

Corero’s CEO Ashley Stephenson said: “We are very pleased to know that Corero
is enabling G4BOX to meet its mission of providing continuously available,
high performance gaming to its customers. For organizations that rely on the
Internet like G4BOX, it just makes good business sense to use Corero as a
first line of defense in order to eliminate the risk of downtime and security
breaches associated with DDoS attacks.”
