The relevance of this move is meaningful beyond the security community, as XBT is now planning to develop advanced solutions against distributed denial of service attacks on service providers and enterprise operations.
With its combined assets, XBT ranks in the top 10 of hosting and internet infrastructure providers. XBT’s acquisition of DDoS.com ensures that a domain of this importance is in the hands of the IT security community. Going forward XBT will launch its own sophisticated toolset for neutralizing DDoS attacks, an arsenal that combines preventative measures with ongoing attack mitigation methods.
In the Worldwide Infrastructure Security Report of Arbor Networks released a few days ago, it is clear that regardless of whether respondents were in service provider or enterprise environments, DDoS attacks were the No. 1 operational threat to these organizations.
XBT Holding is proud to expand its portfolio and join the elite few companies with the operational expertise needed to support service provider and enterprise customers in securing against the most significant threat they face.
The security professionals of Webzilla, Servers.com and all their sibling companies are no strangers to mitigating DDoS attacks. Their decades of collective experience in combination with the substantial infrastructure assets at their disposal lend to the collective services soon to be offered at ddos.com.
The acquisition of DDoS.com combined with the expertise developed by all the companies under the XBT umbrella in dealing with threats to security, including DDoS attacks, guarantees a service that will make the online world a safer place.
