Black Lotus Partners with CloudSigma to Provide Enhanced DDoS Protection in Cloud Environments

Black Lotus, a leader in availability security and provider of distributed denial of service (DDoS) protection, today announced a partnership with CloudSigma, a public cloud infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) provider with advanced hybrid hosting solutions. As DDoS attacks become increasingly common across industries, it is crucial for cloud providers to consider the cybersecurity of their customers. By partnering with Black Lotus, CloudSigma's customers are afforded enhanced protection, ensuring they aren't at risk for wasted time or resources in the event of a targeted DDoS attack.

For a global cloud provider like CloudSigma that services major enterprises across markets, a basic, automated DDoS mitigation offering is insufficient. As DDoS methods grow more complex, countermeasures require a larger portion of a business' IT team to manage the attack, pulling employees away from their primary responsibilities and incurring significant losses in revenue as a result. Black Lotus provides hands-on, customizable protection that takes into account the environments at stake to give CloudSigma customers the guaranteed around-the-clock uptime that they rely on for optimum productivity and maximum profits.

"Recent research shows that nearly 40 percent of enterprises are unprepared for DDoS attacks, which can be very hard to recover from," said Robert Jenkins, chief executive officer at CloudSigma. "Our partnership with Black Lotus enhances our existing core infrastructure DDoS protection with a more user-focused, customizable service. It will also complement our firewall policies for greater security in general, giving our customers a more seamless, protected experience in our cloud."

Black Lotus' Chief Security Officer and Co-Founder Shawn Marck said, "Our company's mission is to ensure our customers - whether websites, protected servers or data centers - can go about their business without fear of censorship or disruption due to a DDoS attack. By partnering with CloudSigma, we're able to expand into new regions and market segments and provide the proactive security-as-a-service solution that enterprises need to easily sidestep the prolonged detrimental impact an attack can have."   

Black Lotus' DDoS protection solution is available immediately from all of CloudSigma's cloud locations, including San Jose, Washington D.C., Miami and Honolulu in the U.S., and its dual locations in Zurich, Switzerland in Europe.
