FireHost, a secure Web hosting company, is making protection against Denial of Service and Distributed Denial of Service (DoS/DDoS) attacks available for all customers as a standard part of every secure hosting plan. The company is joining forces with RioRey, a leading worldwide DoS/DDoS mitigation provider, to give superior protection to all current and future customers against one of the most devastating kinds of cyber attacks a business can face.
“We fight DDoS attacks weekly and have worked hand-in-hand with RioRey in training our team and sharpening our attack policies,” said Chris Drake, CEO and founder of FireHost. “FireHost is absolutely committed to using premium solutions that protect SMBs from cyber attacks as dangerous as DDoS, and having a rock-solid team to back up the products.”
Dan Vertrees, senior vice president of sales and marketing at RioRey, goes on to say, “Most hosting companies either don’t offer protection against one of today’s most serious threats to IT Infrastructure, DDoS, or they offer it as an upgrade. RioRey believes the major reason behind FireHost’s massive growth is their willingness to invest in securing their clients Web presence as a standard, no exceptions. With the appropriate defenses in place, FireHost ensures its clients’ sites are always protected from attacks. That’s where RioRey’s technology comes in.”
Offering DoS/DDoS protection is no longer an option but a necessity for most SMBs. Especially those that provide B2B SaaS applications where critical data is housed, and businesses require maximum uptime and application availability. Even though Dos/DDoS attacks are less common than typical hacks, they give a painful punch when they occur. The financial impact to a business can be devastating, as well as the long-term damage to customer relations, corporate reputations and brand image.
FireHost has implemented the RioRey solution for all current customers, offering the same high level of DDoS protection for all of their secure Web hosting clients. RioRey offers superior DDoS protection over the competition by using a series of unique algorithms. This technology effectively blocks DDoS attacks at the perimeter of the network, detecting attacks and nullifying their effects within seconds. RioRey helps protect thousands of Web sites throughout Asia, Europe and North America.
