A review of Spectre DPI and its correspondence to the company’s objectives
We chose IT-GRAD as our cloud partner because of the comprehensive package of services they provided for hosting our news portal. We are interested not only in renting resources, but also in implementing of a set of measures to ensure the portal’s efficient work, such as administration, backup, monitoring, etc.
Since the beginning of 2014, our resource has been subjected to short-term DDoS attacks, and we needed a solution that would protect us from such threats. We were very efficiently connected to a service based on the Spectre DPI hardware and software complex which can handle unplanned increases in traffic, even those exceeding the average by several orders of magnitude.Using this service has resulted in the uninterrupted availability or our resource on the Internet.
