Posted by marketing on Mon, 06/04/2020 - 13:09
The spread of COVID-19 is one of the biggest and most unpredictable obstacles business owners have ever had to tackle. You and your team may be facing some difficult decisions and feel like you’re at crisis point. Or you’re in unknown waters when it comes to moving forward with your business during this emergency. At RedSpam we appreciate with the current worldwide situation companies are putting their resources on hold, but this current climate is a hotbed for cyberattacks.
UK authorities have reported cases of fraudulent emails that claim to offer local information about this outbreak or send fake maps that deliver malware targeting sensitive data. It’s still difficult to calculate how many attacks are being carried out or how many people are being affected, but there are attacks nearly every day – and much worries since many people started working from home!
Whatever your challenges, we want to let you know that we can alleviate any cyber security, to help you steer your business through the next weeks and months. We want to support your business today, so we are offering a free RedSpam Emergency DDoS Mitigation (via DNS redirect) service during this outbreak to help with your company's remote strategy.
What is our Emergency DDoS Mitigation strategy?
If you are hit by a DDoS attack, we will invoke all the attack traffic and return to you all the good/clean and legitimate traffic. We will offer one mitigation instance free and will keep this running for 48 hours. Overwhelming a webserver could mean also taking out ALL your business communications for minutes, hours, days, weeks and prevent your customers trading online with you.
RedSpam DDoS Monitoring and Mitigation Solution has two UK cleaning centres located in Global Switch 2 and InterXion datacentres. The cleaning centre design is based on geographical redundancy providing high availability and dilution of DDoS attacks. RedSpam’s DNS solution can protect multiple services including HTTP, HTTPS and FTP.
Can you stop a DDoS attack?
Competition on the Internet is just a click away and brand awareness is crucial for businesses to generate traffic, reach the right users on the website and, in the last instance, convert this website visit into a sale. This online popularity offers great advantages but, at the same time, can make your website vulnerable for a cyberattack. This is simpler than you imagine, and anyone with bad intentions and some bitcoins could buy a DDoS attack in minutes, so you must be ready for any eventuality. Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack is an attempt to crash a web server or online system by overwhelming it with data. As attacks become more sophisticated, organisations must become more proactive in their approach against cyberattacks. Why getting exposure to DDoS attacks when it’s possible to stop them? We combat them with awareness.
- Monitor abnormal network activity and keep antivirus updated

Some market key insights about Cyber Security
Just last year, more than 30% of business in the UK suffered an attack, and most of them (89%) report identifying their most disruptive breach or attack within 24 hours, according to the latest Cyber Security Breaches Survey. Based on the latest NETSCOUT Threat Intelligence Report, the hot attack targets are wireless telecommunication sector (64%) and gaming. Satellite telecommunications saw an increase of 295% in attack frequency. Wholesale trade, which includes motor vehicle and motor vehicle parts and supplies as well as computer equipment subsectors, saw an 834% increase in max attack size.
Consider the use of DDoS website protection service that will detect abnormal traffic flows and redirect any DDoS traffic away from your company’s network. You can apply other layers of DDoS defence techniques and security measures such as firewalls, VPNs, and anti-spam. If your computer were to become infected, hackers might be able to steal not only your personal information but also data about your work.
