Instances of DDoS attacks has been exponentially rising in frequency and scale since 2010. With Cloud Computing becoming the predominant computing model, cyber terrorist and criminal see increasing motivation and benefits in targeting web businesses. With internet infrastructure around the world and computing power constantly improving, access to DDoS and hacking tools and resources becomes increasingly available. DDoS attacks are becoming the mainstream arsenal of choice in preventing a target from functioning normally on the Internet.
Since 2011, Nexusguard has aided many organizations- particularly in the Precious Metal Exchange, Financial and Stock Trading industries- in fending off cyber attacks, thus preventing millions of losses that would have been suffered if their online trading businesses had been taken offline.
"For companies in the online-trading industry- like Gold-Bullion Trading- low-latency, high reliability and customizability are the primary requisites for a protection solution, apart from data and information integrity and security", said Karl Koh, Head of Sales at Nexusguard, who noted a marked increase in inquiries and sign ups in Hong Kong, most likely in relation to the recent bout of attacks targeted at members of the Chinese Gold & Silver Exchange (CGSE).
