When most providers would simply null-route or shut down the victim’s services, Sharktech sprang into action by combining the protection of three Sharktech data centers into one, powerful, cloud-based DDoS protection.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 06, 2015
Sharktech Internet Services, a leader in internet services and provider of Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection, has introduced advanced DDoS protection.
DDoS attacks are evolving at a rapid pace with no appearance of slowing down. A new breed of attack, known as Reflected DDoS, has greatly increased both the scale of DDoS attacks and the resulting damages.
“Recently an IRC network that Sharktech hosts and protects was under attack—a huge attack—similar to the attack Lizard Squad targeted Sony with (BBC news, Jan 27th, 2015),” Sharktech President Tim Timrawi said. “When most providers would simply null-route or shut down the victim’s services, Sharktech sprang into action by combining the protection of three Sharktech data centers into one, powerful, cloud-based DDoS protection.”
As DDoS attackers evolve and hone their skills, so must defenders. Sharktech has unified three data centers (Chicago, Denver and Los Angeles), providing DDoS protection up to 100 GigE and 140 Mpps. Sharktech is able to load balance incoming DDoS attacks into the three data centers simultaneously and relay clean traffic back to its customers’ servers. This is not the only benefit, however, according to Timrawi.
“The additional benefit of Sharktech’s advanced DDoS protection is that it introduces cloud features that result in increased performance,” he said.
Sharktech, a pioneer of DDoS protection, continues to make its protection smarter, faster and stronger. Before the attack happens, stop DDoS attacks with SharkTech Advanced DDoS Protection.
