Black Lotus Communications, a pure play DDoS mitigation pioneer headquartered in San Francisco, CA, has announced that two new network traffic scrubbing centers in Ashburn, Virginia and Amsterdam, the Netherlands are now live. These scrubbing centers provide terabit-scale DDoS mitigation capacity to enterprise customers around the world, including web hosting providers.
By expanding to the East Coast and Europe, Black Lotus is allowing companies to take advantage of lower traffic latency, increased service redundancy and higher mitigation capacity to defend against the most harmful DDoS attacks.
The size and frequency of DDoS attacks would have already grown rapidly in 2014, with cybercriminals regularly using new attack vectors and exploiting new vulnerabilities to inflict maximum damage on their targets. With Black Lotus‘ additional scrubbing facilities, customers across the U.S. and throughout Europe would be able to rest assured that these new attacks will be mitigated without delays and without impact to profits or productivity.
“After experiencing DDoS attacks while on another host, we realized we had to go on the offensive to effectively serve our customers around the world,” said Dennis Steele, founder of Museter Online Radio Hosting. “We knew Black Lotus’ international footprint would ensure 24/7 service and short turnaround times on DDoS mitigation.”
