Black Lotus Communications Launches New Scrubbing Centers in Virginia and Amsterdam

New Facilities, Increased DDoS Mitigation Capacity Lead to Enhanced Security Solutions for Global Customers

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/16/14 -- Black Lotus Communications, a provider of availability security and distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) protection, today announced that two new network traffic scrubbing centers in Ashburn, Virginia and Amsterdam, Netherlands are now live. These scrubbing centers provide terabit-scale DDoS mitigation capacity to enterprise customers around the world, including service providers and hosting operators. By expanding to the East Coast and Europe, Black Lotus is allowing companies to take advantage of lower traffic latency, increased service redundancy and higher mitigation capacity to defend against the most harmful DDoS attacks.

The size and frequency of DDoS attacks have already grown rapidly in 2014, with cybercriminals regularly using new attack vectors and exploiting new vulnerabilities to inflict maximum damage on their targets. With Black Lotus' additional scrubbing facilities, customers across the U.S. and throughout Europe will be able to rest assured that these new attacks will be mitigated without delays and without impact to profits or productivity.

"After experiencing DDoS attacks while on another host, we realized we had to go on the offensive to effectively serve our customers around the world," said Dennis Steele, founder of Museter Online Radio Hosting. "We knew Black Lotus' international footprint would ensure 24/7 service and short turnaround times on DDoS mitigation."

As one of the few pure play DDoS security providers, Black Lotus has become a high-demand vendor for businesses that are interested in proactively addressing cybersecurity concerns. As cyber threats evolve over time, the company continues to develop its protection services to forecast potential vulnerabilities and address current and future attack vectors.

"As threats grow more complex in this rapidly evolving cybersecurity industry, organizations are looking to thwart new DDoS attack technology in the fastest and most efficient way," said Arman Khalili, chief executive officer of Black Lotus. "Since we are now offering the best security solution through the most efficient platform, we have strategically expanded our footprint to provide our global customers faster reaction time to ensure a more effective mitigation process."

Black Lotus' security-as-a-service platform now offers mitigation capacity multiple times larger than the biggest DDoS attack ever measured.
