BGS halts attacks on its servers
Constant attacks halted by security SaaS
Dome9 removes headache for stock business
US firm Best Growth Stock (BGS) has managed to halt attacks on its web servers thanks to security Software as a Service (SaaS) from Tel Aviv-based start up company Dome9.
BGS systems were consistently being targeted by more than 50 attacks a day with many of the perpetrators traced to China. The company, based in Lake Tahoe, Nevada, even resorted to using a DNS proxy to halt the attacks but still problems persisted.
It was only when he was referred to Dome9 and the service they provided which streamlines the company’s security infrastructure that the attacks were thwarted. All sorts of pages, including ones with a very high website ranking, could be affected by such threats so it is always wise to try and halt as many of the threats as possible.
Omar Caban, president and chief executive officer at BGS, told SearchCloudSecurity.com: “Amazingly, once it was running, we had zero attacks. Now, not only does the company not have to spend hours trying to fend off server attacks, the servers run faster, which is critical for his growing business.”
The security SaaS, which has only been available since September is already making waves in the cyber security world. It is designed to automate security management for large cloud infrastructures both private and public through its Secure Access Lease technology.
Dave Meizlik, vice president of marketing at Dome9, told the website that many private servers are vulnerable to attacks primarily because “administrators leave ports open on those machines.”
Dome9’s software however, manages to provide dynamic, time-based access to servers. This ensures that administrative access is closed automatically and is only opened for administrators for the amount of time it is needed.
Dome9 already provides services to help manage Amazon EC2 and Amazon Virtual Private Cloud Security Groups.
