(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – ControlCircle, the leading datacentre and managed services provider, today introduced a rapid deployment Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) mitigation service for both SMEs and global organisations. ControlCircle offers a scalable, fully-managed and integrated DDoS service to protect organisations of all sizes and profiles from malicious cyber-attacks that are designed disrupt or disable Internet-facing services.
“Integrating network-wide intelligence and carrier-class threat management capabilities, ControlCircle’s DDoS mitigation solution offers the market one of the most intriguing propositions in the cyber-threat domain. The rapidly-deployable technology is delivered across ControlCircle’s high-capacity global backbone, enabling the real-time identification and mitigation of a DDoS attack,” said Damian Milkins, president and founder of ControlCircle. “DDoS attacks have returned with a vengeance and any sustained attack has the potential to incapacitate IT infrastructures, servers, websites and all communications associated with IP compromising an organisation’s integrity and revenue opportunities, as well as causing collateral and reputation damage.”
The ControlCircle solution monitors access points at the network perimeter of the customer’s infrastructure to identify and stop network and application-layer attacks. The DDoS mitigation solution utilises complex match algorithms to halt any attack and provides visibility into critical applications such as VoIP/SIP, DNS, HTTP and P2P running on the network and the monitoring of key performance metrics and reporting.
“When you consider our reliance on technology and web operations there is a climate of fear over the harm that a cyber-attack could unleash. We think DDoS protection should be available to all organisations irrespective of size and ControlCircle with its technology partners has made this a reality,” added Milkins.
Palringo, the provider of the consumer mobile instant messaging (IM) service, is currently using the DDoS solution. Martin Rosinski, chief technical officer, Palringo said, “After experiencing a crippling DDos attack on our website we engaged with ControlCircle who were able to help immediately. The service, deployable on a need’s basis, takes away the capex dilemma and provided a multi-layered defense architecture that extended visibility and control to the edge of the Internet. ControlCircle’s DDoS Solutions has helped us prepare for, monitor, manage, and mitigate the impact of any further malicious DDoS attacks and enabled us to stay focused on our core business.”
