HUDSON, Mass. -- October 7, 2013

Corero Network Security (CNS:LN), a leading provider of First Line of Defense®
solutions for Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) and cyber threat
protection, has entered into an agreement under the Strategic Alliance Program
with Neustar, Inc. (NYSE: NSR), an information services company and leading
provider of cloud-based DDoS protection services. As a Neustar Strategic
Alliance Program partner, Corero enables its customers to extend the power of
its on-premise always on protection with the added security and flexibility of
Neustar’s on-demand, cloud-based DDoS protection services to combat growing
cyber threats.

DDoS attacks come in all shapes and sizes, from brute force volumetric floods
to sophisticated application layer exploits.Regardless of the size or
complexity of the attack, the downtime associated with a DDoS attack can
result in significant revenue losses with some estimates reaching hundreds of
thousands of dollars per incident.

“The dilemma facing many organizations is whether to deploy an on-premise DDoS
appliance or subscribe to a cloud provider for DDoS protection on-demand.With
a hybrid approach to DDoS protection, organizations can rest easy with a
solution that combines the best of both worlds,” said Nirav Shah, Director of
Product Management, Corero Network Security.

The Corero DDoS Defense System (DDS) provides always on protection against the
full range of potential DDoS attacks from low level fragment attacks, through
session oriented SYN-floods, to advanced application layer abuse. In cases
where a customer needs expert assistance in mitigating an attack or the attack
bandwidth exceeds the capacity of an enterprise’s Internet connectivity,
additional protection would be provided using a failover service to Neustar’s
SiteProtect cloud-based DDoS mitigation service.Additionally, with the Corero
SecureWatch PLUS® service, enterprises can benefit from the collaborative
communication among the DDoS solution providers, thereby adding threat
intelligence and control to their business continuity plan.

Neustar’s Strategic Alliance Program allows partners to promote a world-class
cloud-based DDoS mitigation service to their customers. “Neustar is excited to
have Corero as a Strategic Alliance Program partner. By extending access to
Neustar and our expert mitigation teams, Corero will ensure that its customers
are prepared to address the growing threat of DDoS attacks,” said Alex Berry,
Senior Vice President of Enterprise Services, Neustar.

“Our customers have seen the robust benefits of using the hybrid combination
of on-demand cloud services and on-premise DDoS defenses to combat the ever
expanding range of cyber threats that challenges online businesses today. We
are pleased to extend a more comprehensive solution to enterprises
experiencing the damaging effects of the varied DDoS attacks,” said Ashley
Stephenson, CEO, Corero Network Security.
