Corero Network Security PLC (LON:CNS) saw its shares jump today on news it has landed two deals worth US$400,000 in total for an Intel extension of software that prevents distributed denial of service attacks (DDoS).
In afternoon trading, Corero shares were 5.9%, or 0.38p higher at 6,75p.
The two unnamed North American customers for its SmartWall Threat Defense System 100Gbps product are described respectively as a hosting provider and a service provider.
The new product, launched recently, provides real-time DDoS protection at 100 gigabits per second – hence the name.
"These customer wins mark an important milestone for our SmartWall product,” said Corero president Andrew Lloyd.
“We see growing adoption of 100Gbps connections, which in turn is driving demand for our SmartWall NTD1100 product.”
