December 23, 2013 No Comments
(The Hosting News) – GigeNET, broadly recognized as a pioneer and leader in Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) security, is headquartered just outside of Chicago, where it owns and operates a state-of-the-art 17,000 square foot datacenter. Its latest DDoS solution uses sophisticated algorithms and proprietary hardware to monitor and detect malicious traffic, and reroute it through its new scrubbing center, while allowing legitimate traffic to pass through uninterrupted. The introduction of GigeNET’s Automated DDoS Protection and Monitoring further extends GigeNET’s DDoS protection suite, which also includes GigeNET’s DDoS Protection ProxyShield its enterprise-class reverse proxy protection.If your business continuity plan doesn’t cover potential DDoS attacks, you may be putting your company at risk. According to many recent studies, the size, speed and complexity of attacks are becoming more devastating in terms of cost, and reputational risk.“DDoS attacks are no longer a question of if but when,” said Ameen Pishdadi, President and CTO of GigeNET. “As DDoS attacks become more prolific and costly, businesses can’t afford to wait for an attack to happen. Instead, they need to be proactive and protect their revenue stream and reputation. We developed this solution to allow our clients to get a better night’s sleep knowing their servers are being monitored, and mitigation is automatically activated if an attack occurs.”

Automated DDoS Protection enables GigeNET to provide DDoS monitoring and mitigation on dedicated servers for new and existing clients. Setting up this service takes just minutes, and there is no need to change your IP address.

In preparation for this solution, and to position GigeNET to handle the anticipated greater demands for bandwidth and the larger DDoS attacks predicted GigeNET has recently completed the initial build out and installation of its own dark fiber ring. Using dark fiber allows GigeNET to increase its data center capacity by almost 100 times while strengthening its reliability and security.
