Gavin Lyons, CEO of Accumuli, comments: “DDoS Secure is a fantastic technology and we want to ensure it continues to thrive in the industry. We believe in this technology and the value it can add to our customers and partners. As the previous owner of the technology, we are uniquely suited to continue its development to meet our customers’ business needs.”
We now have a much larger owned IP portfolio than we had when we sold the Webscreen business two years ago. With a team of more than 15 developers we are now in a much better position to invest in and grow that IP. In addition, now that we are part of NCC Group, customers will have access to a much wider development community.”

Jon Shallow, the Chief Architect behind the DDoS Secure product since 2000, will join Accumuli Security to continue to head up work on the solution. DDoS Secure customers and partners will receive uninterrupted support and a product line that will continue to be enhanced and extended in line with a robust product roadmap, as well as accepted customer enhancement requests.
