Overview/Executive Summary

Cyberattacks have become a fact of life for modern businesses. The most common is the Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) variety, which is aimed at bringing down a service by overwhelming it with traffic from multiple sources.

The security service providers protecting companies from these attacks need a strong technology infrastructure that can support the traffic, location, and compliance requirements in the market.

With its experience and global footprint, Equinix is proving to be a leading choice. In fact, since 2008 it has been helping Nexusguard – a global DDoS player with a strong presence in the Asia Pacific region – to safeguard customers and realize its growth ambitions with speed and ease.

Business Challenge

When Nexusguard was founded in 2008, a significant cyberattack was considered to be when an enterprise was flooded with 1Gbps of malicious data. Today, attacks have exploded in both frequency and potency, and can hammer defenses with hundreds of Gbps of data in a single incident.

To meaningfully combat DDoS attacks, cloud-based providers must take a two-pronged approach. One tool is proximity: that is, being as close as possible to the origin of the attack. The other is to maintain sufficient carrier access and bandwidth to provide reliable service during an attack. By working with Equinix, Nexusguard can provide both capabilities to its customers.
