Due to the increased prevalence of Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Attacks targeting enterprises and network infrastructure providers, Las Vegas-based hosting firm Versaweb will now include DDoS protection at no additional cost on all of their dedicated server hosting plans.
Versaweb has been offering hosting and other Internet services customized for small and medium businesses for over 10 years. Recently, however, the company has seen a dramatic uptick in the size and frequency of DDoS attacks targeting dedicated servers hosted on their network, requiring swift action to ensure protection was available for all of their customers.
“We’ve been offering DDoS mitigation services to our customers for several years as an optional service, and many of our customers were already subscribing to our various protection plans,” said Rob Tyree, Versaweb’s CTO and founding partner. “However, after several very high-profile recent attacks which caused millions of dollars in lost revenue and other damages, we decided that it was time for a shift in our thinking as far as protecting our customers is concerned. After months of development and beta testing, we’re proud to announce that we are now offering protection for every server on our network.”
Mr. Tyree also noted that while all servers on the Versaweb network are now protected by their DDoS mitigation platform, premium protection levels would still be available for customers requiring higher levels of protection or that need protection services backed by a Service Level Agreement (SLA).
Versaweb is an Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and cloud-based hosting services provider based in Las Vegas, Nevada. The company services clients from across the globe from its Las Vegas and Seattle data center locations.
