Press release: Acorus Networks, 1st DDoS Scrubbing Center network connected to LU-CIX


LU-CIX is pleased to welcome in its community Acorus Networks, as a new connected Gold supporting member.

Acorus Networks is a French Cybersecurity startup founded in 2014 by co-founders Benjamin Schilz and Raphaël Maunier to protect small as well as large companies against Distributed Denial of Service attacks (DDoS) both for their network infrastructure and their web application services.

As no industry is free from these risks, Acorus Networks provides a large scale Cloud infrastructure protection service to its customers like government, defense, media, ecommerce, retail, transport, healthcare, gaming etc. Acorus Networks guarantees high availability of their systems by protecting them against ever-sophisticated DDoS attacks.

After having deployed its robust infrastructure in different datacenters in France to protect its French customers, Acorus Networks has begun to expand its protection network in Europe and opened a new Point of Presence (PoP) in Luxembourg in September 2017.

“Finance and Cloud providers established in Luxembourg need efficient DDoS protection as they already suffered attacks and downtime; that is the reason why we decided to open recently a local PoP in Bettembourg (Luxembourg) to address their demands”, explains Benjamin Schilz, co-founder and CEO of Acorus Networks. “Moreover, the fact that a European company can propose cybersecurity services has interest for Luxembourg enterprise which don’t trust non-European vendors.”

“Acorus Networks has developed two complementary offers to cover all DDoS protection needs. First, Acorus Cloud Protect™ is a solution based on a robust reverse proxy architecture with WAF and anti-DDoS advanced protection to prevent http/https websites effectively ahead from multi-vector attacks. Acorus Infra Protect™ is our second intelligent mitigation solution. We launched it in November after our security experts deployed the full stack system in our own secure large-scale infrastructure in Paris and Luxembourg, to protect automatically all the customer Internet access at network and application levels against DDoS attacks”, says Olivier Melwig, Managing Director of Acorus Networks.

“Cybersecurity is a very hot topic for Luxembourg and especially for LU-CIX. Through our events we are trying to sensitize the ICT community and we are glad to include among our members Acorus Networks and their innovative solutions” says Claude Demuth, CEO of LUCIX.
