The Planet Deploys TippingPoint Security Solutions for Websites

As large enterprises struggle against cyber threats, The Planet, a leading provider of Internet and hosting services in Dallas, achieved superior security with Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) from TippingPoint, a division of 3Com Corporation (Nasdaq: COMS - News). The advanced solution was the only product that could operate effectively in The Planet's ultra high-volume environment, where gigabits of traffic at any moment access one million customer Websites residing on the firm's 23,000 servers.

The TippingPoint Intrusion Prevention Systems prevent malicious traffic like viruses, worms and other threats from entering The Planet's network and its customers' networks, home to 10,000 clients, which range from individuals to multinational corporations. The Planet is one of the fastest data centers in the world, with aggregate throughput of over 16 Gigabits per second (Gbps) of traffic per data center. TippingPoint's IPS delivers the most thorough and preemptive security available without degrading performance.

"Our customers depend on The Planet to safeguard their networks and Websites, and now that we've deployed the TippingPoint Intrusion Prevention Systems, we are doing so with even greater confidence and an unparalleled level of security," said John Bradberry, vice president of information security at The Planet. "We're also improving our market position by demonstrating security as a clear differentiator over our competitors."
