Webair to Discuss Multi-Layer DDoS Mitigation Strategies at Hackfest 2015

(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – Webair, a leading provider of Cloud Hosting, Colocation and Managed solutions, today announces that one of its Infrastructure Engineers, Logan Best, will present at Hackfest 2015 in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada on Saturday, November 7, 2015.  The two-day conference, taking place November 6 – 7 at the Hotel Plaza Quebec, brings together a community of over 600 IT security experts and hacking enthusiasts.

At 10:00 AM, Mr. Best will present “Multi-Layer DDoS Mitigation Strategies,” which will focus on real- world deployments of Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) mitigation strategies in every layer of the network, including an overview of methods to prevent these attacks and best practices on how to provide protection in complex cloud platforms. The session will also outline Webair’s experience in managing and running thousands of Linux and Unix managed service platforms and offer insight and examples from both business and technical perspectives.

“DDoS attacks can adversely affect a company’s productivity and reputation, and if left unchecked can become a drain on its financial and human resources,” comments Mr. Best.  “With double the number of attacks occurring in 2015 when compared to last year — perpetrated by hackers that have become increasingly more sophisticated in their methods — businesses must be better prepared than ever to prevent these assaults in every layer of their network.  Webair is experienced in assisting customers to mitigate DDoS risk through proven proxy-based and volumetric DDoS Mitigation solutions, and we’re pleased to have the opportunity to share our knowledge and expertise with the IT security community at Hackfest.”

Now in its seventh year, Hackfest is the largest event focused on IT security and hacking in Eastern Canada.  To meet with Webair during Hackfest 2015 in Quebec, please email [email protected].
