PALO ALTO, CA – CloudLinux, the leader in security and stability technologies for hosting providers, has announced that Dewaweb hosting company is offering cyber protection powered by the Imunify360’s artificial intelligence to Indonesian businesses of all sizes. Dewaweb is CloudLinux’s first partner in Indonesia to become the official reseller of Imunify360.

“Cybersecurity is an important issue that cannot be ignored in this digital era, where all your important data are at risk of being hacked or your system being interrupted by hackers, especially in the Asia Pacific region of the world,” said Edy Budiman, chief executive officer of Dewaweb. In May 2017, a massive attack by ransomware called ‘WannaCry’ has infected more than 200,000 computers in 150 countries, including Indonesia. Based on the news released by CBS News, losses caused by this ransomware were estimated to reach US$ 4 billion.


Microsoft stated in its “Asia Pacific Malware Threat Landscape 2017” infographic that Indonesia and Vietnam are more prone to cyber attacks compared to the other Asia Pacific countries (Japan, Hong Kong, Thailand, Philippines, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, and Singapore).[2 Indonesian president, Joko Widodo, on June 1st, 2017 released presidential regulation (Perpres) about the establishment of a national cyber agency. In line with this new regulation, Dewaweb improves its web hosting service quality in order to ensure cyber security in Indonesia by offering Imunify360 to their customers.

Imunify360 is an automated all-in-one security system with powerful machine learning technology to process all insights collected from servers all over the world to keep the system protected from the latest attacks. Imunify360’s six-layer approach includes sophisticated self-learning firewall, malware scanning, reputation management, and other advanced features to provide total protection against threats.

“We have seen an increased level of attacks targeted at many websites and applications hosted on our servers. We need a smarter and a more comprehensive security system to protect our customers’ servers and Imunify360 by CloudLinux is a perfect choice. It’s easy to deploy, manage and monitor, saving us a great deal of time.” said Edy Budiman, chief executive officer of Dewaweb.

A research and marketing consultant company CyberEdge Group released its Cyberthreat Defense 2017 Report showing an increase of cyber attacks from 76% in 2016 to 79% in 2017[3 . This report analyzed the survey done by 1,100 qualified IT practitioners in 19 major industries from 15 different countries. The attacks are influenced by three main factors, such as low awareness in the importance of cybersecurity, the lack of qualified personnel to handle that matter, and the massive amounts of data to be analyzed.

“These factors can be minimized with the help of the automatic security system that we offer to our clients,” added Budiman.

“The unfortunate truth is that today, most businesses can be attacked by at any moment,” said Igor Seletskiy, chief executive officer at CloudLinux. “Imunify360 was designed specifically to protect web servers from various attacks. It can greatly increase protection for Dewaweb’s clients and ensure they have an excellent hosting experience with Dewaweb.”

Seletskiy added, “We are very excited about this partnership. To be able to help Dewaweb in protecting businesses and web servers in Indonesia, and to create a safer web experience is our goal. We look forward to a long-standing relationship between our companies.”

Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence sent letters to DreamHost and Shopify over the weekend, asking the hosting service providers to disable the GhostGunner.net and GhostGuns.com websites. The request comes in the wake of news that the mass murder in Tehama County, Calif., was carried out by an individual prohibited from owning guns with weapons he made from parts ordered online.
Giffords Law Center argues that because the guns sold on the two sites are illegal in some states, the businesses aid and abet violations of state laws by their customers, and therefore they can be shut them down for violating the service providers' Acceptable Use Policies and Terms of Service.
Weapons made without serial numbers — which are generally required by U.S. federal law — are known as "ghost guns," according to the announcement. Kits and parts sold by the websites can be assembled into semi-automatic handguns and assault weapons using 3-D printing and milling technology in a home workshop.
"The recent mass shooting in Northern California underscored how dangerous it is when people legally prohibited from owning guns can go online and buy do-it-yourself assault weapon kits from unaccountable companies with no background checks, and no questions asked," Adam Skaggs, Chief Counsel at Giffords Law Center said in a statement. "But companies like Ghost Gunner and Ghost Guns are profiting from doing just that. The Internet Service Providers hosting their

LONDON, UK – Netwise Hosting officially made the switch to true 100% renewable energy at its fast-filling London Central data centre. This places the organisation right at the head of the field in terms of its commitment to a sustainable future, as one of the first data centre operators to push entirely renewable energy in the UK.

Netwise will join ranks with the likes of Google, who are themselves committed to making the switch across their entire global estate by the end of the year.


This comes as welcome news to everyone in the industry, as current estimates predict global data centre power usage to top 500 terawatts by 2020. That’s over 3% of the world’s energy consumption, an unignorable figure that places data centres at the epicentre of responsibility for spearheading and supporting genuine renewable energy schemes.

Netwise Hosting, now two years on from launching its London Central facility, turned to specialist provider Ecotricity for the delivery of this ground-breaking change, as leaders in the supply of truly green energy.

Crucially, rather than relying on ambiguous carbon credits and misleading offset schemes, Ecotricity generate this energy themselves using the wind, the sun, and soon the sea. This is directly in keeping with Netwise Hosting’s own ethos of owning and controlling as much of the service chain as possible.

Matthew Butt, Managing Director at Netwise Hosting, gave comment on the recent change.

“This is a big step for us in setting the standard for the future of data centre operations, particularly in a major capital city like London. We are incredibly proud to be delivering our customers with what may well be the greenest data centre service set in London, if not the UK.”

This bold new move works together with the industry-leading Power Usage Effectiveness rating already achieved at Netwise Hosting’s London Central data centre, which is one of the lowest in Europe. It is through the intelligent deployment of evaporative and free cooling technologies that allows the facility to reach its impressive PUE of just 1.12 [lower is better, with the average at 1.60].

Netwise Hosting work with a wide range of clients who now consider ‘going green’ to be a major priority for their service delivery. None of these are more prevalent than Krystal, who are one of the UK’s largest cloud hosting companies, and who actively push responsible service provision. Earnestly evolving energy procurement in line with these pressures has become a primary driving force behind Netwise making the jump to a renewable supply at its private facilities, both now and in the future.

Matt Seaton, Senior Manager at Netwise Hosting, also gave comment.

“We now work with several large service providers who are feeling added weight every day in reducing their carbon impact, as computational demands continue to increase. We’ve listened to this demand, and helped our early adopters in delivering this to their end clients.”

Netwise plan to run a range of events and engagement activities to increase awareness around the importance of delivering services to end clients using energy sourced responsibly. The first of these occurred this month, with a soft launch of the company’s new ‘green wall’, now in place at its London Central facility.
