Selects Arbor Peakflow SP platform to protect its infrastructure from DDoS attacks.

iomart Group plc has selected the Arbor Peakflow SP platform in order to protect its infrastructure from distributed denial of service attacks that are the primary threat to the availability of their services.

Since 1998,iomart has grown to become one of the most widely respected and trusted providers of business critical cloud and managed hosting services, enabling global customers to reduce the cost, complexity and risks associated with maintaining their own web and online applications. iomart operates 10 enterprise grade data centres at eight locations in the U.K., along with six data centres globally, including US, European, Middle East and Asian hubs. All iomart data centres are connected with a large choice of Tier 1 networks, and backed by their guaranteed service levels and 24x7 NOC team.

“Everything we’ve built at iomart, from our world-class infrastructure to our dedicated 24x7 support team, starts with the availability of our services. DDoS has become a primary threat to availability, especially within an infrastructure environment like ours where multiple enterprise customers exist side-by-side. That’s why we’ve chosen to be proactive and deploy the world’s leading DDoS mitigation technology from Arbor Networks,” said iomart Chief Executive Angus MacSween.

“The Cloud Hosting market is a highly competitive one, and businesses have many options. iomart has been able to distinguish itself because of its combination of world-class infrastructure, service and support. Many organisations wait until they’ve been taken offline to get serious about DDoS protection. Not iomart. They’re moving proactively to secure their own infrastructure and offer their customers availability protection as part of their core services. With a commitment to quality like that, it’s no wonder that their customers are so satisfied with their services,” said Arbor Networks President Matthew Moynahan.
