Amid Rising Threat to Business Networks, IaaS Provider Implements Industry-Leading DDoS Volumetric Attack Prevention Technology
NEW ORLEANS (July 25, 2016) – In a bid to shut down Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks before they inflict harm, leading Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provider Infinitely Virtual today announced that it will begin offering ZENEDGE for Networks featuring RapidBGP™, effective immediately. Infinitely Virtual made the announcement in conjunction with HostingCon Global, here through July 27.
ZENEDGE RapidBGP™, from Miami-based ZENEDGE, is a new model for real-time DDoS mitigation through the automatic analysis of DDoS alerts and deployment of routing commands to ensure that immediate action is taken when legitimate DDoS attacks are detected – all without any human intervention.
“Given the rising threat of criminal enterprises subjecting businesses to ransom demands and the sheer frequency of DDoS incidents, we’ve upped the ante in terms of security and implemented this industry-leading DDoS attack protection for our customers, across the board,” said Adam Stern, CEO, Infinitely Virtual. “As the security environment changes, so has our response to that environment. ZENEDGE for Networks featuring RapidBGP provides scalable, hardened, and easily deployed DDoS protection, safeguarding client systems and networks from threats with an industry leading time-to-mitigate (TTM) of less than 60 seconds.
“Massive volumetric attacks are something new and especially troubling, and no single firewall can stop them,” Stern noted. “ZENEDGE for Networks featuring RapidBGP is the single best defense against volumetric attacks.” According to industry analysts, volumetric attacks rank as the most common type of DDoS incident, accounting for an estimated 65 percent of the total reported.
“We’re excited to team up with Infinitely Virtual to provide peace of mind to the IV user community with ZENEDGE for Networks,” said Leon Kuperman, ZENEDGE Chief Technology Officer. “Our proven RapidBGP technology provides an affordable network DDoS mitigation solution with the industry’s best time-to-mitigate in under 60 seconds.”
With “Always-on” and “On-demand” modes, ZENEDGE security can be customized to current needs. Both options provide organizations with automatic mitigation in case of an attack, ensuring that organizations are never left vulnerable. Specifically designed for the protection of networks, service providers and data centers, ZENEDGE’s high capacity Layer 3 and 4 DDoS mitigation infrastructure mitigates disruption to network traffic. As the first point of entry, all incoming traffic is routed through the ZENEDGE infrastructure, ensuring that no malicious traffic reaches the user’s network. Outbound traffic continues to route locally, minimizing performance impact on network traffic.
