13 Sep Liquid launches DDoS Secure to protect African customers
Liquid, a subsidiary of pan-African technology group Cassava Technologies, has released a new security solution designed to halt cyber attacks.
Liquid has launched its Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Secure offering which works by scrubbing traffic and blocking known attackers or malicious traffic. It’s being offered to all potential Internet and IP transit clients, and provided to all existing customers in regions where Liquid has operations across Africa.
Ahmad Mokhles, CEO of Liquid Networks commented: “Cyber Attacks are at an all-time high. Cyber security threats cost the African GDP almost a whopping US$4.1-billion in 2021. And, DDoS is on top of the cyber security attacks. The staggering cost to our GDP is proof enough that no business can afford to be without a layer of protection against them.
“While DDoS attacks have evolved over the years, our offering is equally sophisticated. With traffic scrubbed at one of our four scrubbing centres, customers can focus on their core business requirements while keeping them safe from DDoS attacks.”
While protecting clients’ networks and operations, DDoS Secure also gives them a line of sight of attempted attacks, through post-incident reports. With the recent launch of Liquid’s Next-Gen Cyber Security Fusion Centre, the organisation will be able to monitor all online activity live and deter an attack before it reaches the network.
Mokhles added: “With this measure in place, there will be higher visibility of potential attacks, and we will be able to mitigate threats and proactively secure businesses automatically. In addition, we can now manage and protect our customers in real-time.”
