However, the problem is when small business owners are not aware of the existence of threatening attacks on the internet, such as DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks. Increase Cyber Attack Protection Dewaweb Takes Advantage of Cloudflare Magic Transit
Realizing the importance of anti-DDoS protection, Dewaweb started using Cloudflare Magic Transit technology for all of its customers.
DDoS attacks or DDoS Attacks are attacks that are often used by hackers because they can interrupt critical infrastructure. When experiencing a DDoS attack, the server or website will experience downtime which affects business revenue. In fact, anti-DDoS protection is rumored to be one of President Joe Biden’s main agendas for national security in the United States (US).
In addition to affecting the security of a country to business revenues, DDoS attacks can also affect business productivity, damage brand reputation and network performance will continue to decline. This of course can be a fear for business owners who also use the website to run their business.
Launching from Beritasatu, based on data from Cloudflare1 as of the second quarter of 2021, consumer services are the industry most vulnerable to DDoS attacks, followed by government administration, then marketing and advertising. Dewaweb’s cloud network in Indonesia and Singapore have also experienced an increase in the number of DDoS attacks since the last two years, which is quite disturbing and causing unrest.
Based on this problem, Dewaweb decided to provide the best anti-DDoS protection or protection using Cloudflare Magic Transit for all cloud hosting and cloud server (VPS) customers on the Indonesian and Singaporean networks. This action also affects the performance of the Dewaweb network because it is directly connected to the Cloudflare network in 200 cities and 100+ countries.
This free service has a bandwidth capacity for DDoS mitigation of 90 Tbps (Terabits per second). The Dewaweb network only takes less than 3 seconds to detect and counteract DDoS attacks that target websites and customer servers.
Dewaweb CEO, Edy Budiman, stated that Dewaweb’s collaboration with Cloudflare was focused on educating users about security and product integration.
“Our partnership with Cloudflare is strategic and focuses on user education and product integration. We also want to integrate Cloudflare into SaaS (Security-as-a-Service) services as a new service aimed at the business market,” Edy explained in his statement, Tuesday (11/10/2021).
Not only improving network security and quality, Dewaweb’s Network Operations Center (NOC) and Security Operations Center (SOC) teams can also work more effectively and efficiently in monitoring and mitigating dangerous DDoS attacks. Currently, Dewaweb is still the first web hosting provider created by the nation’s children to provide the best anti-DDoS protection like this.
