Anti-Network Terrorism Software Unveiled by Cyber Operations

Distributed Denial of Service Attacks Prevented While Maintaining Network Integrity

JUPITER, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nov. 15, 2001–

Company Announces Technology is Available for Acquisition

As companies and the United States Government’s Internet sites and networks are under increased terrorist attacks from so-called Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, Cyber Operations announced the availability of real-time prevention against Distributed Denial of Service attacks via their Anti-Network Terrorism (A.N.T.) technology.

A.N.T. provides on-the-fly network protection against Distributed Denial of Service attacks. The technology provides real-time detection that prevents DDoS flood interruptions while having minimal impact on normal network operations. A self-learning, artificial intelligence-based technology, A.N.T. includes a stored database of DDoS signatures with the ability to learn new signatures “on-the-fly,” This enables A.N.T to operate as a stand-alone system or in unison with other A.N.T. systems, sharing signature information with all installed databases.

“A.N.T. is unique in its approach to solving a Denial of Service problem in its ability to launch a countermeasure against a DDoS attack in real-time by blocking the network attack. A.N.T. provides companies an effective deterrent to Distributed Denial of Service attacks, without any effect to inter-company employees or customers,” said Bill Townsend, chief marketing officer of Cyber Operations. “Upon sensing a DDoS attack, the technology prevents network failure, thereby keeping the network operational while fending off the attack. Had A.N.T. been deployed during the attacks on Yahoo! (Nasdaq:YHOO), ebay (Nasdaq:EBAY), Amazon (Nasdaq:AMZN), Microsoft (Nasdaq:MSFT) and others, the subsequent site shutdowns could have been prevented.”

A.N.T.’s architecture utilizes key elements that act hand-in-hand to monitor both internal and external data traffic for potential hostile network DDoS attacks. It’s ability to identify potential hostile attacks against an end user makes A.N.T. unique in the market and provides added security to sensitive networks that is not currently available. With A.N.T., system administrators now have a system that offers “Defensive/Offensive” tools, both automatic and user initiated, to combat attacks and protect their domain.

“Widespread utilization of A.N.T. will save corporations and the government billions of dollars in lost revenues and network downtime,” stated Townsend. “Last year, and even more so today, organizations are increasingly susceptible to villainous hackers launching DDoS attacks in order to disrupt everyday operations. These attacks are expanding to targets that include local and national governmental infrastructure, utility companies, corporations, and critical infrastructure. A.N.T. provides the technology to solve the problem.”

Cyber Operations also announced the A.N.T. technology is available for acquisition. Interested parties should contact James Groves at 561/575-5018 or via e-mail at
