Why Black Lotus Built 7 DDoS Security with OnApp

(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Malicious cyber attacks, including distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, are a concern for businesses of all sizes and in every industry. That’s why security providers like Black Lotus Communications have been vigilant about keeping up with the latest network threats ever since DDoS attacks appeared in the late 90s.

However, in today’s interconnected world, with the cloud becoming more prevalent, companies need even smarter security solutions. Black Lotus’ Human Behaviour Analysis (HBA) system, a GSN Homeland Security awards finalist, is a cutting-edge solution that picks up on threats before they take a toll on the layer 7 network. HBA is powered using an OnApp Cloud hosting service.

In a video released by OnApp, Black Lotus president Jeff Lyon further explained the company’s decision to build their layer 7 DDoS security service with OnApp. “We came to OnApp because we have hosting customers, small-to-medium businesses that require very simple, affordable clouds… but we also have enterprise customers who require Layer 7 DDoS mitigation, and we can power that through OnApp, by running our HBA engine on an OnApp cloud.”
