Los Angeles, CA — RackNerd LLC, a dedicated server, complex hosting, cloud, disaster recovery, colocation, and infrastructure services provider today announced the launch of its new product offering: DDoS Protected Virtual Private Servers (VPS). DDoS Protected VPS services, powered by KVM virtualization, will be deployed out of its new Los Angeles DC-05 facility, featuring 60Gbps of DDoS protection included with every plan.

Its on-the-fly engine fine-tunes distributed denial-of-service attacks in real-time to mitigate even the most sophisticated examples — mitigating attack traffic that would otherwise result in downtime.


With security and uptime emphasized, this sophisticated protection service proactively detects and filters complex network security threats. The result: a seamless experience where end-users encounter no downtime or increased latency.

“In recent studies, it has been found that a single DDoS attack costs some businesses as much as $2.5 million in lost revenue. With network related attacks evolving to become a serious concern for businesses around the globe, very few fine-tuned, proactive mitigation solutions existed in the marketplace until now.” discloses Dustin B. Cisneros, CEO of RackNerd LLC.

The destructive impact of DDoS attacks can result in website downtime, degraded server performance, website vulnerability, and most importantly: lost time, productivity, and revenue. An analysis by Kaspersky Lab Research announced that DDoS attacks are continuing to rise globally, costing both financial and reputational damage for many organizations.

“In these times where online presence is more critical than ever before, it is essential for businesses to have a plan in place to mitigate today’s sophisticated network attacks. Our enterprise-grade DDoS mitigation service is designed with the future in mind. DDoS attacks of all shapes, sizes, and types are stopped automatically without any manual intervention from our customers. New attack patterns are learned and systematically filtered.” Cisneros added.

Businesses looking to deploy upon DDoS protected infrastructure can now benefit from RackNerd’s new product offering. To learn more, please visit: https://www.racknerd.com/ddos-protected-vps

With NEC UNIVERGE BLUE CONNECT and ENGAGE, NEC is bolstering its global cloud communications offerings to fully support customer organizations in their migration to the cloud.

This partnership for the delivery of cloud-based communications, collaboration, and contact center solutions with Intermedia allows NEC and its global network of partners to build toward a brighter future with the utmost care for quality, cost, and customer service,” said Kimihiko Fukuda, Senior Vice President, NEC Corporation and President, NEC Platforms, Ltd.

Our formula has been pretty simple – first, deliver highly reliable and secure, easy-to-use and manage, feature-rich cloud applications that allow users to communicate how they want, where they want, and when they want. And then, back those products with the sales, marketing, onboarding, billing, and technical support partners need so they can focus on winning more business and earning greater top-line revenue. With this focus, Intermedia has built an active partner community that is 6,600 strong and growing. By teaming with NEC, we look forward to working together to provide our UCaaS and CCaaS solutions to help drive better communications for a broader global audience.”
