vXchnge’s network, location and security practices are key considerations
NEW YORK – September 27, 2016 – Today, vXchnge announced that ProTraf Solutions, a provider of Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) mitigation to enterprises, has launched in vXchnge’s Edge New York City data center, selecting the site for its carrier-neutral infrastructure, strategic location and high security standards. The addition of ProTraf as a vXchnge customer also expands the broad range of services that vXchnge customers have access to within the vXchnge ecosystem.
ProTraf Solutions provides its customers with a robust mitigation platform that protects enterprise networks against complex DDoS attacks. ProTraf’s platform inspects traffic in real-time, identifying and responding to threats in less than one second. This rapid response ensures continued uptime, even in the face of multi-vector cyber-attacks, which can quickly change its attack tactics. ProTraf Solutions selected vXchnge to provide the power and infrastructure redundancy required to keep the platform up and running, taking advantage of vXchnge’s 100% uptime guarantee. By leveraging vXchnge’s New York City PoP, ProTraf Solutions was able to secure cost-effective rack space for its colocation and dedicated server interests, as well as access to key backbone networks present in New York City required for mitigating large DDoS attacks.
“As a provider of DDoS mitigation services, we needed access to core backbone networks in a secure facility, and no other data center provider met our needs like vXchnge,” said Paras Jha, President of ProTraf Solutions. “vXchnge’s personal support and attention along with its superior track record in security, power and uptime were crucial for us as we establish our presence in the Northeast.”
Reaching more than 80 million people on nearly 500 million devices, vXchnge provides customers with data centers strategically located throughout the U.S. vXchnge’s locations position its customers at the edge, enabling them to connect with consumers and other businesses in more markets—all under one agreement with one colocation provider. This also enables vXchnge to address “distance to customer” issues for cloud and service providers that fuel the digital services economy.
“We are thrilled that ProTraf Solutions chose vXchnge New York City as its Northeast data center services provider. The frequency, size and scale of online attacks has increased exponentially and, therefore, it is important for companies to have access to the service that ProTraf provides,” said Ernest Sampera, Chief Marketing Officer at vXchnge. “Our infrastructure is designed to support services like ProTraf Solution’s mitigation platform, which require highly resilient Data Center-as-a-Service capabilities.”
