Limelight Networks, Inc. announced the availability of DDoS Attack Interceptor, powered by the Limelight Orchestrate platform. As a central component of the Limelight Orchestrate Security service, DDoS Attack Interceptor provides multiple lines of defense to protect customers – proactive notification in the event of an attack, traffic scrubbing, and protection from unplanned costs due to traffic spikes. Aligned with this customer preference, DDoS Attack Interceptor is integrated directly into Limelight’s global CDN.

Going beyond simple signature matching techniques, the detection engine uses patented behavior-based techniques that compare measured baseline of both volume and patterns and more intelligently differentiate good traffic from compromised traffic. Limelight also announced the availability of the Orchestrate 3.0 platform, a comprehensive platform, purpose-built for the delivery of digital content with exceptional Quality of Experience (QoE).
