July 6, 2006 (HOSTSEARCH.COM) Web hosting provider DiscountASP.NET
(http://www.discountasp.net) has announced it is boosting security and protecting customers by implementing the TippingPoint Intrusion Prevention System (IPS).
The TippingPoint system will protect DiscountASP.NETs customers against known exploits by using a series of predetermined rules to establish whether data packets are legitimate or malicious. TippingPoint also utilizes Digital Vaccine, a function that regularly updates the systems filters to maintain defense against the latest vulnerabilities, viruses and rogue applications. According to DiscountASP.NET, since its deployment, the TippingPoint IPS solution has blocked over 10 million malicious packets.
"With the TippingPoint IPS we can provide a proactive security solution, and by offering the most reliable and secure ASP.NET hosting available, we further differentiate our hosting service in the marketplace," suggested Takeshi Eto, DiscountASP.NETs VP Marketing. "While TippingPoints security professionals focus on protecting our network and hosting infrastructure, we can focus on innovating our ASP.NET hosting product and services."
DiscountASP.NET offers Windows-based shared hosting with a focus on ASP.NET and SQL database hosting. The company is a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner and Microsoft ASP.NET Hosting Advantage Program featured member.
