(The Hosting News) – DDoS mitigation provider Prolexic recently stepped in to help 1ink.com’s e-Commerce Sites in the aftermath of DDoS attacks.
1ink.com provides replacement printer cartridges via its online retail presence.
“The 1ink.com network was hit with the first of three DDoS distributed denial of service attacks that grew in size and complexity. The first DDoS attack brought down 101inks.com, one of the smaller 1ink.com e-Commerce sites, for more than a day,” described Prolexic via a press release.
Prolexic noted it succeeded in mitigating the attack within just five minutes and said 1ink.com’s websites were most likely “mistakenly targeted.”
Aside from mitigation, the company’s DDoS-related services include monitoring, intelligence and network protection.
