(The Hosting News) – GigeNET’s continual innovation and investment in its technology enables it to combat the recent onslaught of DDoS attacks that have taken down datacenters and ISPs. This solution is designed to prevent an attack on one customer from taking down an entire network. The start of 2014 has seen a surge in the number and size of attacks against datacenters and networks.
Widely known as a preeminent leader in Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) security and mitigation, GigeNET is headquartered just outside of Chicago, where it owns and operates a state-of-the-art 17,000 square foot datacenter. GigeNET’s full suite of DDoS protection solutions includes Automated DDoS protection for servers, ProxyShield for websites, and its most recent addition, Provider Level DDoS protection. The latest solution added to its DDoS protection suite makes it possible for GigeNET to protect everyone, from the one-person start-up to the largest enterprise.
The first quarter of 2014 has seen attackers moving away from application layer attacks (layer 7) in favor of easier to deploy attacks on the network and transport layers (layers 3 and 4). Large SYN floods and NTP reflection attacks have been the most common this year.
“We are seeing an increase in ISPs and Datacenter’s looking for protection for their networks, so one customer getting a 50Gb/s attack doesn’t take out their entire network infrastructure,” said Ameen Pishdadi, President and CTO of GigeNET. “As a result, we’ve recently added a significant number of data centers and ISPs to our Service Provider DDoS Protection Solution.”
GigeNET continues to harden and expand its infrastructure in anticipation of larger and ever-evolving DDoS attacks, including the installation of its own dark fiber ring. The use of dark fiber enables GigeNET to increase its data center capacity by almost 100 times while strengthening its security and reliability.
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, Illinois where it owns and operates a 17,000 sq. ft. enterprise-class private data center that allows GigeNET to offer clients high performance with superior security at affordable prices. GigeNET also offers their wide range of services in its newly expanded Los Angeles, CA data center with plans to open an East Coast location shortly.
GigeNET has been a pioneer since its inception in the 90’s and continues to push the boundaries of what’s possible, developing new technologies and trailblazing products for their clients including ProxyShield®, the industry’s leading DDoS mitigation system.
