DDoS Mitigation Is Critical for Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery

A distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack can happen at any time, resulting in widespread service outages. Organizations must therefore take advanced security measures in order to ensure business continuity in the event of an attack.

Just recently, GTT Communications, Inc. announced the launch of its DDoS Mitigation service, which is a new capability within the company’s Managed Security suite. This service protects businesses from malicious Internet traffic, thus ensuring the security and continuity of business operations.

Preparing for the Unexpected Requires a Viable Disaster Recovery Solution

An adverse event or outage at a data center can happen when it’s least expected, causing prolonged downtime and significant financial loss for an organization. Therefore, every data center needs a reliable disaster recovery plan.

Fortunately, it’s easy to obtain a robust disaster recovery solution by working with a cloud and fully-managed infrastructure provider like Webair. Just recently, Webair announced a partnership with Data Storage Corporation that will enhance its High Availability (HA) Disaster Recovery and overall support capabilities for IBM Power Systems (iSeries, AS/400 and AIX) environments.
