(DDoS) attacks, will introduce a new routed mitigation service called PLXconnect at the 2012 RSA Conference.

PLXconnect is a new way to activate the company’s existing DDoS mitigation service through a private cloud. The PLXconnect Routed Service Plan relies on a physical connection to a private cloud to allow Prolexic to onramp the customer’s incoming traffic and inspect it for anomalies or misbehaviors. Then the safe traffic is sent out and attack traffic is dropped, the company said.

The Hollywood, Fla.-based company said a direct physical connection from a client’s network to the company’s scrubbing centers provides clients with a high bandwidth, predictable latency option using a service-level agreement (SLA), and is a good fit for customers with a large, complex network.

Using a private cloud may also eliminate complex network changes sometimes required by an Internet-based routing technology like Generic Route Encapsulation. As a result, Prolexic claims PLXconnect can be used by companies that operate Internet edge deployment using many protocols and site-to-site VPNs or have complex application interactions.

Additionally, Prolexic’s SLA for PLXconnect will include latency and packet loss guarantees.
