Winners of 8th Annual 2013 Hot Companies and Best Products Awards were announced on May 7, 2013 in Las Vegas.

"We are pleased that the DDoS protection innovations developed at Prolexic are getting wider recognition," said Stuart Scholly, president and Prolexic.

As such, PLXabm delivers a platform for a level of forensic analysis the DDoS mitigation industry has never seen before."

Prolexic's on-premise PLXabm appliance collects and sends data back to Prolexic's Security Operations Center (SOC) where alerts and forensic sets are created. Armed with this information, Prolexic's SOC can pinpoint the precise nature of an attack in minutes.
