Local online security companies are enjoying a rise in sales after 
continuous distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks last week 
boosted demand need for protection on the Internet.

Companies here that sell software to protect against DDoS attacks 
include Nowcom, Cisco Korea, Arbor Networks and Radware Korea. Nowcom 
said it sold around 30 units of its DDOS defense system =E2=80=9CSniper DDX=E2=80=9D for 
about 200 million won ($157,729) in sales from July 7 to 10. The Korean 
company launched the system in April 2008 to compete in a field 
dominated by foreign-owned firms.

Sniper DDX blocks attacks by detecting malicious high-volume traffic and 
then shielding computer systems. Before July 7, Nowcom had sold just 60 
units of the software in over a year since its launch.

=E2=80=9CWe had to supply our anti-DDOS systems fast, even without proper 
contracts this time, because the orders just flooded in,=E2=80=9D said an 
official at Nowcom. =E2=80=9CAfter these attacks, DDoS blocking programs will 
see a rise in popularity.=E2=80=9D
