Great Plains Communications Introduces Enhanced DDoS Protection, Providing Real-time Threat Protection and Mitigation

GPC Distributed Denial of Service security protection helps businesses avoid downtime and disruption due to ever-increasing cyberattacks

Blair, Nebraska, August 3, 2021 — Great Plains Communications (GPC), a growing Midwestern telecommunications provider, today announced the availability of GPC Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Protection service for mitigating today’s ever-increasing  and more sophisticated DDoS attacks.  A GPC network-based service and an enterprise best-practice, the GPC DDoS service is designed to detect and defend against high-volume distributed denial of service attacks that block customers and employees from websites and applications, thereby endangering business stability and profitability.

To meet enterprise network and application cybersecurity requirements, GPC DDoS Protection offers both proactive and on-demand mitigation services, along with network traffic analytics accessible via a web-based customer portal.

“Increasing and malicious cyberattacks are a threat to enterprises everywhere. Unfortunately, hackers continually develop new methods with the aim of overloading an organization’s online presence to prevent customer and employee access in an effort to shut down businesses,” said Todd Foje, CEO of Great Plains Communications. “The enhanced GPC DDoS solution arms our customers with a powerful tool that enables proactive action to disarm an attack, keeps the company informed throughout the event, and ultimately protects the business.”

GPC DDoS Highlights

  • GPC DDoS protection provides 24×7 DDoS monitoring and notifications for Dedicated Internet Access (DIA) bandwidth from 10 Mbps to 10 Gbps. Network traffic analysis is accessible via a monitoring portal.
  • Proactive DDoS Mitigation provides 24×7 automated DDoS protection. If a business is experiencing an attack, the GPC DDoS service will automatically take action to mitigate the threat.
  • On-Demand DDoS Mitigation is available weekdays from 8 am to 5 pm Central Time.
