How Redundancy and DDoS Protection Keep Your Data Center and Business Connected
By: Kaylie Gyarmathy on January 23, 2017
Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks has become a part of life for American business. Is it Russian hackers or just some bored kid in his bedroom? If you are a Network Administrator, CIO, or anyone concerned about the health of your business, it doesn’t matter who the attacker is. All you know is that your servers are down, your website is unresponsive, and in a digital economy, that means you are losing money every second.
Plus, once a DDoS attack has breached your business you could be vulnerable to more severe attacks. For Tech and Enterprise CEO’s the problem runs deeper, your brand's image is at stake.
The Stakes Are Increasing
The 2016 Dyn cyber attack shows that even top tech companies can succumb to a DDoS attack. Plus, the stakes of a DDoS are increasing. “The next DDoS attack may not be on your website, it may be on your car,” says John Reed, Senior Product Manager at vXchnge. That means that it is not just your company’s sales and reputation that might suffer during the next big DDoS attack - people could be put at risk.
Reed emphasized that the increased connectivity embodied by the Internet-of-Things (IoT) presents enormous opportunities and value potential for businesses and consumers alike, but also comes with risk. Every additional connection to the Internet is another likely point of entry for malicious hackers looking to breach your security. “Creating a safe, reliable path for IoT and Data Center traffic was top-of-mind when we developed vX\defend,” says Reed. “As Edge Computing continues to play an increasingly significant role in business strategy, our goal is to make sure that our customers have high-performance, secure connectivity to their services and applications at all times.”
