Staminus has teamed up with the multi-service IT company Advania to defend their Iceland-based clients. With 70 years of experience in the field of technology services, Advania is the largest business of its kind in Iceland, and was the ideal partner to help establish a quality defense against Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attacks in the country.
“Advania served as an ideal partner for delivery of our services to the Icelandic market. Iceland is uniquely situated in that the country is well-represented online despite having a relatively small population, and that the overwhelming majority of the population is Internet-savvy,” says Staminus CEO Matt Mahvi. “The challenge we faced with most companies in the country was reliable delivery of our services. Iceland has few transport carriers so this was a point of concern for us and our customers. Advania solved this by building a high availability redundant network from multiple offshore locations. No other company in Iceland has dedicated so many resources to such an undertaking.”
After rising threats of DDoS attacks within Iceland over the past year, many of which were sent by the group DD4BC (known for demanding ransoms in exchange for stopping their DDoS attacks against their targets), both Staminus and Advania have been working to secure multiple vectors of business, including financial, retail and other internet-connected companies.
Since working with Staminus to add another layer of protection to their robust line of services, Advania’s team says they are pleased with the DDoS partnership, and that it has helped create a stable experience for clients using their network. “With excellent service and customer care, DDoS anxiety is a thing of the past for us at Advania,” says Áki Hermann Barkarson, a service engineer with Advania.
Staminus will join Advania in celebrating its 21stAdvania Fall Conference on September 4th, where both look to move forward and eradicate the threat of DDoS to Icelandic businesses.
