Server Mania Offers No Charge DDoS Protection To Combat Global Rise In Attacks

Buffalo, NY – Server Mania, an industry leader in dedicated hosting for small businesses, announced today that it has upgraded its DDoS protection suite. This decision, explained CEO Kevin Blanchard, was made in light of the global rise in DDoS attacks seen in 2014. Working with DDoS protection specialist RioRey, Server Mania has equipped enterprise-grade hardware to defend against what is rapidly becoming the most common and troubling type of cyber attack.

The company has added four enterprise-grade RioRey DDoS mitigation appliances to its Buffalo, NY data center, connecting them at the edge of the network to maximize their effectiveness. These devices protect the network at every layer, and mitigate every known type of attack currently in circulation. 1 Gbps protection is being offered free, and options to protect up to 100 Gbps are available.

“As the technology to execute them becomes more widespread and widely available, DDoS attacks are becoming increasingly common,” explained Blanchard. The Verisign Q3 2014 DDoS Trends Report reported a 20% increase in attacks over 10Gbps, and one attack as high as 90Gbps.

“Given that these attacks are very often used as a cover for something more insidious – such as theft or fraud – we feel it’s extremely important that hosts do everything they can to protect their clients,” he continued. “By partnering with RioRey, we feel that we’ve been able to do just that. They’re an established leader in enterprise-grade DDoS mitigation, and their protective appliances are some of the best on the market.”

Although relatively simple to initiate, DDoS attacks can have devastating results if they’re not mitigated, something which can be very difficult to do. Thanks to RioRey’s new technology, however, Server Mania can now provide its clients with a powerful system that will ensure their infrastructure is kept online through even the heaviest attack. The company, said Blanchard, counts this as one more indication of its devotion to the client – and calls on other hosts to follow suit as soon as possible.
