Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 30, 2013
Host Virtual, Inc – a leading cloud platform with public clouds available throughout the US, Europe and South Asia is pleased to partner with Black Lotus, the leader in carrier grade DDoS protection, to provide DDoS protection services for Host Virtual customers.
“As a long time Black Lotus customer, we’re pleased to partner with them to offer DDoS protection services.” said Sandy Bhargavi, Sr. Vice President of Host Virtual, Inc. “Services powered by our AnyCast Cloud IaaS platform and protected by Black Lotus give our customers an easy way to deploy DDoS protected cloud servers within a few minutes.”
To get started, customers simply visit the Host Virtual DDoS protected cloud site. Unlike tunneled or proxied services, Black Lotus DDoS protection operates at the network level for both IPv4 and next generation IPv6 traffic. As a network operator, Host Virtual is able to take advantage of Black Lotus’s carrier grade protection network.
“We’re seeing increasing incidents of DDoS attacks against company websites, both small and large,” said Jeffrey Lyon, president of Black Lotus. “After working with Host Virtual over the past few years we’re pleased to partner with them to offer DDoS protection.”
Black Lotus offers protection against DDoS attacks that typically penetrate slowly enough to bypass other available mitigation solutions. The widely used method of DDoS attack infiltrates the network at the application layer (Layer 7) and mimics acceptable Web traffic behavior, exhausting the resources of servers and resulting in service outages. Black Lotus monitors for this kind of traffic behavior and discerns between legitimate and malicious traffic with an intelligent DDoS mitigation platform, ensuring uptime continuity.
The Host Virtual, Inc. Cloud allows customers to easily deploy over 300 Linux, FreeBSD, VOIP and Hosting appliances in just a few minutes, with native dual-stack IPv4 and IPv6 support to any of its 12 worldwide locations.
Combined with advanced tools and services, such as BGP AnyCast, Load Balancing, and worldwide CDN support, Host Virtual provides a seamless IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) base for its customers.
In addition to its public cloud options, Host Virtual offers managed cloud hosting, dedicated private/public clouds, white-label cloud solutions and cloud consulting.
