AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 07/31/13 -- Data Foundry announced today that Tangoe (NASDAQ: TNGO) selected its DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) solution to help it proactively mitigate potential DDoS attacks.
A DDoS Attack is an attempt to make a machine or network resource unavailable to its intended users by generating an overwhelming amount of traffic to web servers. This is not to be confused with a security breach where hackers gain access to an organizations IT infrastructure to capture sensitive information and cause damage. However, a DDoS attack could be a starting point for those intent on causing harm.
"As a long-time Data Foundry colocation customer, we are pleased to see them expand their managed services to include a DDoS mitigation solution," said Ian Coville, Senior Vice President of Global Information Technology at Tangoe. "No industry is immune to DDoS attacks so it's important to be proactive and stay ahead of potential threats."
The DDoS mitigation solution is a new addition to Data Foundry's suite of managed services that leverage its experienced team of on-site, highly-skilled engineers and technicians that are responsible and accountable for supporting customers 24x7x365.
"With the growth of DDoS attacks it is important to provide our customers with the peace-of-mind in knowing that their IT infrastructure has an enhanced level of protection," said Edward Henigin, CTO of Data Foundry. "The best defense against a DDoS attack is to be prepared by having a mitigation solution in place."
Data Foundry's DDoS solution is available today to all of its commercial customers.
