JT is pleased to announce the launch of a new Cyber-attack prevention service.
The world-class software has been developed in the JT Lab by SecurityDAM, part of the global RAD Group.
Online security is of worldwide concern and one that Governments, not just companies, are focusing on. US President Barack Obama declared that the ‘Cyber threat is one of the most serious economic and national security challenges we face as a nation,’ and that, ‘America’s economic prosperity in the 21st Century will depend on Cyber-security.’
DDoS attacks have grown in such complexity, volume and sophistication that 65% of IT security practitioners reporting an average of three DDoS attacks in the past 12 months.
Attacks occur by a vast amount of information being sent via the internet to a targeted website that floods the website or server with requests, which causes it to crash. These attacks have targeted industries such as finance, e-Commerce and Internet Gambling, which can have huge reputational and financial damage for companies.
The new solution will monitor a company’s flow of email, applications and data traffic, and if it detects an unusual change in that flow, will block the malicious requests, but still allow the normal day-to-day traffic through.
‘DDoS prevention is an essential part of a service package offered to business customers’ said Eran Ziv, CEO, SecurityDAM ‘SecurityDAM facilitates the service by providing all the necessary service management elements, including a user-friendly, real-time portal to the end-customer IT manager’
SecurityDAM partnered with JT Lab which was set up by JT, so that innovative, cutting-edge products and services could be tested in Jersey. Tim Ringsdore, Chief Relationship Officer for JT said, ‘This is a fantastic success for JT Lab and for Jersey. To have a new world class solution developed right here in the Island will showcase what we are doing here and the potentials for other companies. It will provide increased revenue not just for JT, but the island as a whole. We are currently in negotiations with several other high-tech organisations to come to Jersey and use our JT Lab facilities as a European test hub.’
