LightsUp Network Solution Sdn Bhd (LNS), a next generation service provider, has teamed up with Nexusguard to become Malaysia’s first Neutral Network Carrier (NNC) capable of integrating different ISP upstreams to provide customers with better service through diverse means. Starting today, LNS offers Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) security solutions with their partner Nexusguard, a global leader in internet security and DDoS mitigation through their latest product, Abatis DDoS Security.
“Hacktivism is becoming a trend in Malaysia,” explains Mr C.L.Dang, Director of LNS, ” It is no longer only large organizations that require DDoS protection, DDoS attacks are now disrupting the SME companies in all industries.”
Last year, Malaysia Airlines was hacked and defaced by Lizard Squad, a group of notorious hacker which are trademarked for their usage of DDoS-for-hire services. This resulted in the leak of VIP itineraries. As most small and medium enterprises lack monitoring tools that detect DDoS attacks, they unknowingly become victims of DDoS.
“Lack of adequate network security and intelligence is common at most organizations”, Mr C.L .Dang said, ” Abatis DDoS Security provides different packages to suit all business level owners and it is a technology designed to serve the community in Malaysia whether it is small, medium or large business owners primarily in online business or transactions, government organizations and financial institutions.” LNS’s collaboration with Nexusguard has created a cyber-security solution that protects against loss caused by DDoS attacks. In addition to advanced DDoS protection, load balancing and SSL Attack Handling, a Web Application Firewall (WAF) protects against website hacking while Web Acceleration improves a website’s access speed. Abatis DDoS Securioty is a cloud based service which provides 24/7 customer service support and customer portal that can be accessed anytime,anywhere.
