Chicago, IL (PRWEB) March 31, 2014
GigeNET, widely recognized as an innovator in Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) security, is headquartered just outside of Chicago, where it owns and operates a world-class, 17,000 square-foot datacenter. The company announced today that its latest DDoS protection solution is designed to meet the needs of Internet service providers by protecting their entire network from costly DDoS attacks.
Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks use hijacked and virus-infected computers to make online services unavailable by overwhelming websites or networks with so many requests that they load very slowly or shut down completely.
However, DDoS attacks are not limited to websites and servers as datacenters are also being targeted. According to a recent study by the Ponemon Institute, released in December, DDoS attacks have become one of the most common triggers of datacenter outages.
“By establishing direct or virtual connectivity to the provider’s network infrastructure, GigeNET empowers the provider by giving them more control over their network during an attack,” said Ameen Pishdadi, CTO and president of GigeNET. “This allows the provider to first and foremost protect itself, so that one customer being attacked does not affect the others. Today, customers are worried most about collateral damage from DDoS attacks.”
Once an attack is identified and scrubbed by GigeNET, they use tools including VPN tunnels to pass the clean traffic to their clients. Their solutions vary based on the current client network designs, and in typical GigeNET fashion, they provide custom configurations. For example, protection can be either "always on" or have an "on/off" control. Clients are also provided with state-of-the-art monitoring tools, so they are always aware of what is happening on their network.
GigeNET is a full-service, managed hosting provider offering dedicated, cloud, hybrid, and colocation hosting solutions as well as state-of-the-art DDoS protection. GigeNET is headquartered just outside of Chicago, IL, where it owns and operates a 17,000 sq. ft. enterprise-class private datacenter. This facility allows GigeNET to offer clients high performance with superior security at affordable prices. GigeNET further offers its wide range of services from a newly expanded Los Angeles, CA, datacenter. There are also plans to open an East Coast location shortly.
GigeNET has been a pioneer since its inception in the 90’s. The company continues to push the boundaries of what is possible by developing new technologies and trailblazing products for clients. One example of this is ProxyShield®, the industry’s leading DDoS mitigation system.
