A Russian cybersecurity solutions developer BI.ZONE, and Qrator Labs company, specializing in DDoS protection and internet resources availability management, has presented at SOC-Forum 2019 a joint anti-DDoS solution.
Lately many companies have been faced with lack of funds for expensive hardware, as well as shortage of cybersecurity experts. Meanwhile, the number of DDoS attacks is rising steadily, and methods used in them evolve. The only way to ensure a company’s security is by turning to outsourcing, and in particular — by using specialized geo-distributed anti-DDoS solutions.
BI.ZONE has become a certified MSSP-partner (Managed Security Service Provider) of Qrator Labs and is now offering its customers a DDoS protection service based on Qrator’s traffic-filtering network. Thanks to this partnership, Qrator’s cloud solution becomes an integral part of BI.ZONE’s managed services. This gives BI.ZONES’s infrastructure unlimited access to Qrator’s global geo-distributed network with filtering nodes connected to the biggest backbone ISPs in USA, Russia, Europe and Southeast Asia, thus ensuring customers’ services are available 24/7.
Close integration of expertise from BI.ZONE and Qrator Labs allows to connect new customers to the cloud filtering network in under 2 hours. Clients also don’t need to constantly involve their own specialists to defend from complex DDoS attacks. Deep traffic analysis is conducted automatically by utilizing built-in machine learning algorithms, and information about incidents during any service period is always available through online account. When purchasing several BI.ZONE services a customer gets access to a unified control interface with full information about services themselves, the client’s ticket history and incidents status. This allows to create cross-correlation between cybersecurity incidents and provide a continuous and effective defense for the network perimeter.
According to the conditions of the partnership, the complete sales cycle, integration and the first line of tech support for the Qrator Labs’ solution will be done by the BI.ZONE SOC team. All the consultations within the second and third lines of defense will be handled by specialists from Qrator Labs.
“Destabilizing an organization’s online resources and making them unavailable is a surefire way to affect a company’s market position, reputation and revenue, which is why DDoS attacks are widely used for extortion and corporate warfare. We have a clear understanding of the features that a service or a solution has to have to be effective against attacks on channels and applications, and we are glad to offer our joint solution with Qrator Labs. Our new partner is an example of a Russian company providing quality world-class service, that ensures a reliable protection and availability of its customers’ resources,” says Muslim Mejlumov, the director of the Managed Services block at BI.ZONE.
“Developing partnerships with cybersecurity providers is one of our key strategic goals. BI.ZONE has been involved in DDoS protection for a long time and accumulated enormous experience in building operator-level traffic filtering centers, testing anti-DDoS measures, and providing corresponding services. We are happy to have an opportunity to join forces with BI.ZONE in creating a service that makes protection from DDoS attacks more accessible to many companies ranging from small businesses to large corporations, not just in Russia but abroad as well,” adds Alexander Lyamin, founder and CEO of Qrator Labs.
