New service enables NetStandard to mitigate the threats of DDoS attacks for customers in hosted and cloud environments.
KANSAS CITY, Kan. – May 15, 2014 – Businesses in Kansas City will soon be safer from cyber attacks, thanks to NetStandard’s addition of enterprise-level DDoS protection services. Delivered via Radware, a global provider of application delivery and application security solutions, the service offerings will position NetStandard as the only data center in Kansas City with coverage for an unlimited number of DDoS attacks and for unlimited attack duration.
“In 2014, we have witnessed sustained DDoS attack sizes exceeding 10 Gbps,” says John Leek, CTO of NetStandard. “To put that in perspective, that is about the effective capacity of most internet backbone pipes today.”
According to a 2013 report conducted by IDG Research Services, the average cost of an outage caused by a DDoS attack could run an internet-reliant company as much as $100,000 an hour. With these protection services, NetStandard will be able to prevent outages caused by multiple kinds of DDoS and cyber attacks for its internet-reliant customers, including attacks launched by hacktivist groups and attacks designed to consume the target company’s internet bandwidth. NetStandard’s ability to offer protection from cyber attacks is particularly important to companies that leverage cloud computing for their critical applications and companies that rely on their internet presence for business operations. Companies such as these will benefit from DDoS protection, as these services will prevent total shutdown of the company in the increasingly likely event of an attack.
Additionally, NetStandard is pleased to announce that DDoS protection services will be implemented at no additional cost for all cloud-based Microsoft Dynamics and AccessPortal virtual hosted clients housed within NetStandard’s Kansas City-based data center.
Leveraging Radware’s services will allow NetStandard to deliver the same DDoS and cyber attack protection services as are offered to many Fortune 500 companies. Through this partnership with Radware, NetStandard customers will have access to the same DDoS mitigation tools as several popular social networks, major financial institutions, and popular retailers.
