Cloud computing specialist Krystal Hosting Hosting wanted to diversify its DDoS protection and bring in a new partner to protect its Katapult platform. This blended approach to DDoS protection helps mitigate threats based on different attack vectors and offers broader security for Krystal and its Katapult customers. Krystal needed a belt and braces solution that could protect its assets and allow it to pass on the robust DDoS protection benefits to its customers. The solution needed to be smart enough to filter out bad traffic without blocking legitimate visitors. Any solution that rerouted or blocked valid customers could have a potentially huge cost for Krystal. This is on top of the risks posed to customers by cloud-based attacks.
