Tenzing Launches DoS Assure Service in Time for Online Holiday Shopping Season

New, Cost-Effective Managed Service Prevents and Mitigates all Varieties of Denial-of-Service (DoS) and Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) Attacks

TORONTO – October 11, 2012

Tenzing Managed IT Services (Tenzing), a leading provider of hosting solutions for ecommerce clients, System Integrators (SIs) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) providers, today announced DoS Assure, the latest in a series of “Advanced Managed Services” being developed and brought to market by Tenzing to help customers overcome common IT, application and business challenges. Immediately available, Tenzing’s DoS Assure is a fully managed DoS (Denial-of-Service) protection service that offers an effective, cost-friendly way to deal with the increasingly disruptive threat of DoS and DDoS attacks, along with other malicious traffic.

Designed for e-commerce retailers, SaaS providers and other organizations that depend on the web to generate revenue and market their brands, Tenzing’s DoS Assure service mitigates one of the most disruptive types of cyber attacks prevalent on the Internet today. There are an estimated 7,000 DDoS attacks reported daily, according to a recent top tier global IP Network Service Provider’s biannual assessment of key trends shaping the broadband and IP transit industry.

DoS Assure can be configured as a real-time safeguard that can stop threats before they happen. It can also be subscribed to using an “on-demand” model should an organization suddenly find itself under attack. DoS Assure is built on a network of highly available cleansing and filtering points-of-presence that can handle the largest and most complex attacks. Coupled with Tenzing’s operational expertise, DoS Assure provides “live”, 24×7 risk monitoring and management across multiple operation centres. Alerting, fast response and remediation are provided by Tenzing’s dedicated team of security experts who ensure that attacks are averted, or have minimal impact on business-critical e-commerce, SaaS and other applications relied on by Tenzing clients.

“In one way or another, almost all companies today rely heavily on the Internet and if their application is truly mission-critical, a DoS attack can bring their business to an immediate halt,” says Brian Shepard, founder and CEO of Tenzing. “Companies need to have a plan in place to prevent and mitigate DoS attacks and DoS Assure, backed by our security team’s expertise, provides an effective and affordable solution to accomplish this goal.”

“Tenzing’s DoS Assure service strengthens our portfolio of Advanced Managed Services and is another example of our commitment to deliver solutions that address complex challenges faced by our clients,” says Raj Atwal, Vice President and General Manager, E-commerce at Tenzing. “With the busiest time of year for e-commerce retailers fast approaching, we are especially excited about launching DoS Assure now. Protecting online sales against DoS and DDoS attacks during the busy holiday shopping season will be vitally important for many of our clients.”
