Virginia Beach, VA (Gawkwire) October 5, 2010 – Black Lotus, a leading distributed denial of service (DDoS) protection services company, announced today its new partnership with ServerOrigin Communications. The Black Lotus/ServerOrigin partnership offers customers the ability to experience DDoS protection and mitigation capabilities beyond the traditional scope of DDoS protection services. Additionally, the Black Lotus/ServerOrigin partnership offers customers robust, high capacity, enterprise grade DDoS protection solutions with the ability to generate enhanced network integrity, cost reduction opportunities, and significant productivity gains.
“ServerOrigin prides itself in creative partnerships that provide more ROI for our customers," says Kevin Hatfield, Director of Operations of ServerOrigin. “Denial-of-service is becoming a fast growing problem with average attack sizes increasing every year. The partnership with Black Lotus allows us to take advantage of the knowledge and expertise that has made Black Lotus the well-known brand that it is today. By working together with Black Lotus, we are mixing two of the best brands in the DDoS protection host industry to create a service where the customer truly benefits in terms of service and price for DDoS protected hosting services."
Black Lotus has officially named ServerOrigin as a Solutions Partner. ServerOrigin will be using Black Lotus’ new MitigationPro appliances by IntruGuard – network behavior analysis appliances designed to stop DDoS attacks. ServerOrigin will also receive IP connectivity from the Black Lotus network in Los Angeles. ServerOrigin will combine internal, proprietary filtering technology and experience with commercially available DDoS protection solutions from Black Lotus.
“Building a network resilient to large-scale DDoS attacks is a tremendous challenge," says Hatfield. “It requires vast experience, a significant investment, and ongoing upkeep in order to remain stable in the face of multi-Gbps attacks. This is where both the Black Lotus network and MitigationPro appliances shine. Black Lotus has already made a big investment and their infrastructure is a solid building block for us to continue our DDoS protection hosting business while allowing Black Lotus to do what they do best."
An experienced and trusted DDoS protection host, Black Lotus has been providing DDoS protection services at every level, from DDoS protected dedicated servers to colocation, web hosting DDoS protection, and LotusCloud VM to prevent DDoS attacks. Black Lotus’s DDoS protection network is capable of multi-gigabit DDoS mitigation and can process millions of packets per second from every type of known attack.
“As an industry pioneer, Black Lotus brings over 10 years of DDoS mitigation experience to ServerOrigin in order to allow them to continue their rapid growth as one of the emerging leaders in the DDoS mitigated hosting and protection industry,” says Jeffrey Lyon, Director of Black Lotus. “Black Lotus MitigationPro appliances will allow ServerOrigin to provide DDoS protection hosting services at a savings of at least 53%. This savings can then be passed on to ServerOrigin customers.”
The Black Lotus/ServerOrigin partnership will leverage synergies between Black Lotus technology and ServerOrigin DDoS hosting solutions to market distributed denial of service protection more efficiently and cost effectively, resulting in an improved customer experience. The Black Lotus MitigationPro DDoS platform will also allow Black Lotus and ServerOrigin to work in tandem to defeat new, zero day attacks and botnets.
