Infotech Lead Asia: VentraIP Group, a provider of domain names and Web hosting services in Australia, has selected distributed denial of service (DDoS) protection provider Black Lotus to offer DDoS protection to VentraIP’s global network.
Leveraging the Black Lotus carrier network and attack monitoring platform, VentraIP is able to mitigate DDoS attacks against clients hosted on their network.
Earlier this year, VentraIP’s clients experienced large-scale DDoS attacks, resulting in network degradation and site downtime. Black Lotus’ DDoS mitigation services help decrease turnover and preserve site uptime, preventing lost revenue and drop-off of legitimate traffic.
“As an Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) and an .au Domain Administration (auDA) accredited registrar, our partnership with Black Lotus for DDoS protection is an insurance policy for our clients that gives us peace of mind,” said Angelo Giuffrida, chief operating officer of VentraIP.
“We’re seeing increasing incidents of DDoS attacks against company websites, both small and large. VentraIP recognizes the potential risk to its customers, and our partnership allows the company to take the necessary steps to safeguard client sites and in many cases, their companies’ livelihoods,” said Jeffrey Lyon, president of Black Lotus.
Black Lotus offers protection against DDoS attacks that typically penetrate slowly enough to bypass other available mitigation solutions. Black Lotus monitors traffic behavior and discerns between legitimate and malicious traffic with an intelligent DDoS mitigation platform, ensuring uptime continuity.
