Dahua Technology Launches Retail Epidemic Safety Protection Solution To Enhance Store Operation Safety Under COVID-19

KINGSTON, Jamaica, July 24, 2020 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — A recent report from AP News shows that a lot of major non-essential retailers worldwide have been affected by COVID-19. According to Neil Saunders, Managing Director of GlobalData Retail, more than 190,000 stores have temporarily closed, accounting for nearly 50% of U.S. retail square footage. At the same time, Swedish fashion retailer H&M also implied that after temporarily closing 3,441 of its 5,062 stores globally, it may be forced to lay off some employees permanently. How to survive during the pandemic and take effective prevention and control measures after work resumption has become a major consideration for retailers across the globe.

In response to the challenges facing the retail industry, Dahua Technology, a world-leading video-centric smart IoT solution and service provider, has launched a professional Retail Epidemic Safety Protection Solution to help retailers maintain safe operations and improve business efficiency during the pandemic, as well as providing upgraded plans to increase ROI after business resumption.

Featuring thermal body temperature monitoring and customer flow control, the Dahua Retail Epidemic Safety Protection Solution combines two technological advantages enabled by AI to provide double value for retailers, assisting in slowing the spread of the virus while creating a safe in-store shopping experience for customers.

The Dahua thermal body temperature monitoring camera allows highly accurate body temperature monitoring of ±0.3℃ (with blackbody). With built-in AI algorithm, it can simultaneously monitor a group of people from up to 3-meter distance, enabling fast and non-contact access. When installed at the entrances of supermarkets and shopping malls, it can help retailers with preliminary screening of employees and customers with abnormal body temperature. It notifies users to take corresponding measures before the temperatures change significantly, thereby enabling the appropriate protocol and conducting a second verification by medical professionals if necessary.

For retailers who require limited customer flow during the pandemic, the Dahua AI-empowered people counting camera can automatically and accurately calculate the real-time number of people entering the store, avoiding congestion and helping to mitigate the spread of the pandemic. When the number of shoppers exceeds the set value, the device will alarm and will display on the digital signage at the entrance of the store that the number of people inside is full, reminding customers to wait at the door. No extra employees are needed to count customers manually at the door, which can help retailers reduce labor costs and improve their management efficiency.

GM Sectec and Visa promote the adoption of secure payment technologies and practices in Latin America

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico and MIAMI, June 18, 2020 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ – GM Sectec, a global leader in cybersecurity, and Visa, the world’s leader in digital payments, have announced the development of a virtual initiative – following a series of successful roadshows in Latin America in 2019 – where they will work together, with the objective of evangelizing, educating and guiding companies in the adoption of secure payment technologies and practices, taking into consideration the moment that we are living in worldwide due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

The COVID-19 health crisis is putting the world at risk. The impact on businesses, markets and economies is already beginning to be felt, and in business ecosystems the demand for strong measures to ensure business continuity is fundamental.

At a global level, the changes and challenges that companies have faced include adapting to new tele-working scenarios, unknown until only about three months ago, have created unique opportunities on all ends of the digital divide. For many large corporations, this option has become the norm and many have chosen to adopt it permanently, at least for the rest of 2020.

As a result, the number of people making electronic payments has multiplied, as shown by the recent Visa study which presented that more than 13 million of its cardholders made an e-commerce transaction for the first time in the first quarter of 2020, in key markets in Latin America and the Caribbean. This means that two out of every 10 active e-commerce cardholders are “new to e-commerce,” representing up to 14 percent of all active Visa accounts in key markets during this period.

“Our intention in developing our GM Sectec & Visa ‘PaySec Talks’ on the heels of our successful ‘PaySec Day’ Events throughout Latin America in 2019; is to promote the adoption of secure payment technologies and practices in concert with our Strategic Partner, Visa. Offering organizations and individuals who are working from home, the opportunity to learn about the tools, tactics and procedures they have available today to prevent multi-vector fraud and identity theft is a critical objective for all of us here at GM Sectec.” said Héctor Guillermo Martínez, President of GM Sectec.

Through the “PaySec Talks”, which will be held throughout July, in three sessions – English, Spanish and Portuguese – GM Sectec and Visa will be sharing better strategies and practices on how to maintain the security of their customers’ information and data when conducting electronic transactions.

“We have seen a pivotal change in consumer shopping behaviors as a result of the pandemic, which has rapidly reinforced the multiple benefits of e-commerce and contactless payments, as consumers prioritize health, safety and hygiene both at home and when out shopping,” said Eduardo Perez, Chief Risk Officer for Visa Latina America and the Caribbean.  ”Now is the time for issuers, acquirers and businesses to invest in quickly implementing payment services that consumers will increasingly demand during and as we overcome this situation.”

for this reason, we want through the PaySec Talks, to educate companies in Latin America, where e-commerce is a growing alternative, to ensure the safety of their customers and their business.”

The “PaySec Talks” will be held on July 2nd, 16th and 30th, to participate you just have to register through the following link: https://events.gmsectec.com/visagmsectec

ContourGlobal Inaugurates Innovative Hybrid Power System in Bonaire

Project recently awarded “Best Microgrid Project of 2019″

BONAIRE, Dutch Antilles and LONDON, Feb. 12, 2020 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ – For seven years ContourGlobal and its client, “WEB” (Water-en Energiebedrijf Bonaire, the island’s electricity and water utility), have collaborated to achieve the holy grail of electricity provision on island nations: more renewable energy, lower costs and around-the-clock reliability.  This common challenge throughout the Caribbean region is now being solved on Bonaire, where ContourGlobal recently inaugurated the extension of its innovative Hybrid Power System joined by representatives of WEB, the island government and other dignitaries and guests.

The Dutch island of Bonaire enjoys strong seasonal winds, peaking from December to June.  Harnessing this extraordinary wind resource enables ContourGlobal to deliver electricity that is lower in cost and carbon emissions than liquid fuel-based alternatives. Because of the intermittency of wind and solar resources, reliable uninterrupted electricity supply requires an innovative solution that can keep the lights on even when wind speeds drop or clouds block the sun.  Utilizing a new state-of-the-art Li-Ion battery with a 6MW/6MWh capacity and power management system supplied by Wärtsilä Greensmith, ContourGlobal is able to maximize wind generation, resulting in reduced costs to WEB by 36% over the last 7 years, decreased CO2 emissions and improved engine efficiency. This has been achieved while maintaining unprecedented levels of reliability including zero blackouts for five straight years.

The hybrid generation system owned and operated by ContourGlobal Bonaire consists of a new battery and digital power management system, the wind farm and newly expanded dual-fuel engines which together supply the entire island’s electricity demand. The new battery storage system supports Bonaire’s grid by injecting active and reactive current to balance decreases in wind speed with a rapid response time of 50-100 milliseconds.  The newly enhanced electricity production system also eliminates the need for the engines to operate at costly low levels of output to support the reliability needs of the electricity grid. Instead, the battery itself can maintain a reliable electricity supply on a second-by-second basis so that during high wind periods the engines can be shut down or used only as a last resort.

Bonaire, the world’s first Blue Destination, is committed to sustainable tourism and has undertaken an ambitious plan to promote 100% sustainable electricity production, including the maximum possible contribution from renewable electricity.  ContourGlobal’s contribution to this plan through its expansion of this unique project was recently recognized by the “Caribbean Renewable Energy Forum” (CREF), which awarded ContourGlobal Bonaire “BEST MICROGRID PROJECT” for 2019.

Joseph C. Brandt, President and CEO of ContourGlobal said, “Our new innovative battery-led hybrid system will move Blue Bonaire one step closer to its ambition of a fully sustainable but still reliable grid.  The success of the project is a direct result of the productive partnership between the teams of ContourGlobal, Wärtsilä Greensmith and ILTEKNO who delivered the project without any Lost Time Incidents in record time and on budget. We look forward to continuing to partner with our client WEB to increase renewable energy production by installing new solar generation and more productive wind turbines.”

For additional information about this innovative power system please see the video embedded here or at https://www.contourglobal.com/asset/bonaire

About ContourGlobal

ContourGlobal is listed on the premium segment of the London Stock Exchange (TKR: GLO) and is an international owner and operator of contracted wholesale power generation businesses with approximately 4.8 GW in operation in 18 countries. ContourGlobal operates a portfolio of 107 renewable and thermal power plants across Europe, Latin America, and Africa utilizing a wide range of technologies.

Dutch Caribbean Air Navigation Service Provider Deploys Space-Based ADS-B In Curaçao

Curaçao leads Caribbean region in aviation safety and efficiency

WILLEMSTAD, Curaçao, Nov. 18, 2019 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ – Today, the Dutch Caribbean Air Navigation Service Provider (DC-ANSP) announced it has deployed Aireon’s space-based ADS-B surveillance service in the Curaçao Flight Information Region (FIR). This milestone follows years of collaboration, with the two organizations signing the data services agreement (DSA) in October of 2015.

Aireon - MAKING GLOBAL AIR TRAFFIC SURVEILLANCE A POWERFUL REALITY

Effective immediately, DC-ANSP will have 100 percent air traffic surveillance over the 300,000 square kilometers that make up Curaçao’s FIR. Adjacent to Venezuela, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Jamaica and Colombia, the majority of this FIR is oceanic.

“Space-based ADS-B will revolutionize how DC-ANSP ensures the highest levels of safety and efficiency throughout the Curaçao FIR,” said Micilia Albertus-Verboom, Director General, DC-ANSP. “Before Aireon, the northwestern sector of our FIR lacked real-time air traffic surveillance coverage. Now, space-based ADS-B provides coverage where before there was none.”

The Curaçao FIR is a major throughway for flights; DC-ANSP manages critical routes between the United States, Central America, South America, the Caribbean and Europe throughout the Curaçao FIR. Because of space-based ADS-B coverage, DC-ANSP’s air traffic controllers will be able to reduce separation and guide overflight efficiency in the northwestern sector of the Curaçao FIR.

Director General Albertus-Verboom also noted, “among the many benefits we anticipate, Aireon will allow us to facilitate seamless transitions between Curaçao’s neighboring FIRs. Regions adjacent to us will benefit from safer and more efficient hand-overs, which are afforded by the minimization of human error through data-driven decision making.”

“Deploying Aireon in Curaçao FIR solidifies DC-ANSP’s position as a leader of aviation safety and efficiency in the region,” said Don Thoma, CEO, Aireon. “Our data will provide DC-ANSP more control over how they manage cross-regional and intersecting routes within their airspace and will enable complete situational awareness for DC-ANSP as they continue to deliver superior safety and efficiency to the flying public.”

For the past several years, DC-ANSP and Aireon have worked closely on the technical implementation of the system in Curaçao, which includes the use of the regional network, Mejoras al Enlace de Voz del ATS (MEVA), as a secondary telecommunication link as a means to transfer space-based ADS-B data to DC-ANSPs operations center. Additionally, Aireon has worked alongside DC-ANSP leadership to ensure preparation for the enhancements in procedural operations.

“Not only have we changed how we manage our airspace, but we are also adapting how we work with our adjacent airspaces and our customers, and Aireon has been our partner at every step of the way for the last four years,” said Director General Albertus-Verboom.

Curacao has a January 1, 2020 ADS-B equipage mandate for part of the airspace where there is no conventional radar coverage. Users in Class A airspace must be ADS-B equipped.

About Aireon LLC
Aireon has deployed a space-based air traffic surveillance system for Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) equipped aircraft throughout the entire globe. Aireon is harnessing next-generation aviation surveillance technologies that were formerly ground-based and, for the first time ever, is extending their reach globally to significantly improve efficiency, enhance safety, reduce emissions and provide cost savings benefits to all stakeholders. Space-based ADS-B surveillance covers oceanic, polar and remote regions, and augments existing ground-based systems that are limited to terrestrial airspace. In partnership with leading ANSPs from around the world, like NAV CANADA, the Irish Aviation Authority (IAA), Enav, NATS and Naviair, as well as Iridium Communications, Aireon is providing a global, real-time, space-based air traffic surveillance system, available to all aviation stakeholders. For more information, please visit www.aireon.com.

About DC-ANSP
DC-ANSP was founded as Netherlands Antilles Air Traffic Control (”NAATC”) which was incorporated in Curaçao on 9 February 2005 and became operational on 1 April 2006. DC-ANSP is an Air Navigation Service Provider (”ANSP”) which is responsible for the Air Traffic Services (”ATS”) within the Curaçao Flight Information Region (FIR). DC-ANSP operates 3 air traffic control facilities: an Area Control Centre located in Curaçao and two Aerodrome Control Towers, one located at Hato International Airport (Hato Control Tower) and the other one located at Bonaire International Airport (Flamingo Control Tower).

Cloud Carib Ranked Among top third World’s Most Elite 501 Managed Service Providers

12th Annual MSP 501 Identifies Top Forward-Thinking Global MSPs & Leading Trends in Managed Services.

CARIBPR WIRE, BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, July 18, 2019: Cloud Carib has been named as one of the world’s premier managed service providers on the prestigious 12th-annual Channel Futures MSP 501 rankings. Coming in above all other providers in the Caribbean and Latin America, and #160 out of 501 managed service providers worldwide, there’s a lot to be proud of for The Bahamas owned and headquartered company.

Every year, MSPs worldwide complete an extensive survey and application to report their product offerings, growth rates, annual total and recurring revenues, pricing structures, revenue mix and more. MSPs were ranked according to a unique methodology that weights revenue figures according to how well the applicant’s business strategy anticipates trends in the fast-evolving channel ecosystem.

Channel Futures is pleased to name Cloud Carib to the 2019 MSP 501.

“We’re honored to be awarded #160 out of the top 501 MSPs worldwide, and to be the highest rated in both the Caribbean and Latin American regions,” said Scott MacKenzie, CEO, Cloud Carib. “We’re proud to be recognized on a global scale and take it as further evidence that we’re helping transform this region and establishing the Bahamas as a tech hub of the region. Every year more MSPs enter the market and competition gets fiercer, our ranking demonstrates our dedication to our client’s business needs, our thirst for innovation and forward thinking as well as our ability to compete on a global scale”.

Cloud Carib Joins Discussion on Caribbean Disaster Resiliency ahead of Hurricane Season at Barbados Conference

CaribPR Wire, BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, June 04, 2019: Last week, organizations from across the globe, including 20 Caribbean countries gathered in Bridgetown, Barbados to discuss disaster resilience, priorities and solutions to tackle climate change and disaster risks at the Understanding Risk (UR) Caribbean conference. Hosted by the World Bank in partnership with the Government of Barbados, the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA) and the European Union (EU), the week-long conference brought together leaders in risk and disaster management as well as private and public sector organizations to collectively discuss and formulate an action plan to address and take steps to reduce disaster risk within the Caribbean.

The event featured demonstrations hosted by the University of the West Indies, Harvard University, NASA, the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS), Nassau-based Cloud Carib and the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction, to name a few. All this in time to kick start efforts for improved hurricane preparedness.

Barbados Prime Minister, the Honorable Mia Amor Mottley offered these thoughts in a keynote address at the opening ceremony, “Failure to act is largely because we do not believe that the problem is important enough to require such action. That’s the hardest thing for us as Caribbean people to accept. It is our contention that it is only when moral and ethical leadership is given both at the national level and the international level that we must summon the courage to fight down these battles. Until such time, it is a form of idle entertainment for those who choose to watch,” Mottley continued, “I pray that those of you gathered here will help us as policymakers understand the art of the possible. For you, as technicians more than anything else, will frame what is technically possible, whether at the level of infrastructure, science and technology, capacity to finance or general policy making,” highlighting the importance of disaster preparedness and the need for agreement and action at all levels of government and the private sector. Mottley’s comments struck a chord for the importance of disaster recovery specialists like Cloud Carib who came on as a partnering sponsor for the conference.

The Bahamian company held a panel discussion on ‘Strategic Approaches to Infrastructure Sustainability’.  On the panel was Cloud Carib’s Mark Arruda, Vice President of Solutions, Shiva Bissessar, Managing Director of Pinaka Consulting, Ann Wyganowski, Vice President, of HZX Business Continuity Planning and Yohannes Kesete the Senior Disaster Risk Management Specialist at the World Bank. The panel focused on the critical issues influencing infrastructure sustainability from physical to digital infrastructure and addressed strategies on how to approach maintaining sustainability and resilience in a region where natural disasters are common, and resources limited. To take a deeper dive into these complex issues Cloud Carib also hosted a half day workshop and training session led by Stelios Xeroudakis, Cloud Carib Founder and Chief Technology Officer, Mark Arruda, Eamon Sheehy, Cloud Carib, Director of Public Sector and Ann Wyganowski.

“This event is timely, the region is looking for a path to better resiliency, the last few hurricane seasons have devastated the region and with the current trends and impacts of climate change, we expect the devastation to only increase. It is important the private sector and organizations like Cloud Carib be involved in this discussion. Our services offer entities, both public and private, the opportunity to improve their resiliency and reduce their risk profile,” said Xeroudakis.

Cloud Carib se une a diálogo sobre recuperación ante desastres en el Caribe en anticipación a la temporada de huracanes en la Conferencia de Barbados

CaribPR Wire, BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, June 04, 2019: La semana pasada, organizaciones de todo el mundo, incluyendo 20 países caribeños, se reunieron en Bridgetown, Barbados para tratar sobre la capacidad de recuperación ante desastres, las prioridades y soluciones para abordar el cambio climático y los riesgos de desastres en la conferencia Understanding Risk (UR – Comprender el riesgo) en el Caribe. Patrocinada por el Banco Mundial en asociación con el Gobierno de Barbados, la Agencia Caribeña de Gestión de Emergencia de Desastres (CDEMA) y la Unión Europea (EU), la conferencia de una semana de duración dio cita a líderes en gestión de riesgo y desastres, así como a organizaciones del sector privado y público para dialogar colectivamente y formular un plan de acción para abordar y tomar medidas para disminuir el riesgo de desastres dentro del Caribe.

Todo a tiempo para impulsar los esfuerzos de preparación ante huracanes mejorada.

La Honorable Mia Amor Mottley, Primera Ministra de Barbados, hizo una reflexión en un discurso de presentación en la ceremonia inaugural: “La falta de acción se debe en gran parte a que no creemos que el problema sea lo suficientemente importante para necesitar tal acción. Esta es la parte más difícil de aceptar para nosotros, el pueblo caribeño.  Nuestro argumento es que sólo cuando se trata de liderazgo moral y ético, tanto a nivel nacional como internacional, debemos armarnos de coraje para combatir estas batallas. Hasta ese momento, es una forma de entretenimiento vano para aquellos que observan”. Después, continuó: “Rezo para que aquellos de ustedes que se reunieron aquí nos ayuden, como legisladores, a comprender el arte de lo posible. Para ustedes, como técnicos más que nada, plantearé lo que es técnicamente posible, ya sea a nivel de infraestructura, ciencia y tecnología, capacidad para financiar o formulación de políticas en general”, y resaltó la importancia de la preparación ante desastres y la necesidad de llegar a un acuerdo y tomar medidas en todos los niveles del gobierno y el sector privado. Los comentarios de Mottley tocaron la fibra sensible con respecto a la importancia de especialistas en recuperación ante desastres, como Cloud Carib, que acudió como patrocinador asociado para la conferencia.

La compañía bahameña, sostuvo un panel de diálogo sobre ‘Métodos estratégicos para sostenibilidad de infraestructura’.  En el panel participaron, Mark Arruda, vicepresidente de soluciones de Cloud Carib, Shiva Bissessar, director administrativo de Pinaka Consulting, Ann Wyganowski, vicepresidenta de planificación de continuidad de negocios de HZX y Yohannes Kesete, especialista sénior de gestión de riesgo de desastres para el Banco Mundial.  El panel se centralizó en los asuntos críticos que influyen en la sostenibilidad de infraestructura desde la infraestructura física a la digital y abordó estrategias sobre cómo abordar la sostenibilidad y recuperación en la región donde los desastres naturales son comunes, y los recursos limitados. Para sumergirse más profundamente en estos temas complejos, Cloud Carib también ofreció un taller de medio día y una sesión de capacitación liderada por Stelios Xeroudakis, fundador director de tecnología de Cloud Carib, Mark Arruda, Eamon Sheehy, director de sector público de Cloud Carib y Ann Wyganowski.

“Este evento es muy oportuno, la región busca un camino hacia una mejor recuperación, las últimas temporadas de huracán han sido devastadoras para la región y con las actuales tendencias e impactos del cambio climático, anticipamos que la devastación sólo aumentará. Es importante que el sector privado y organizaciones como Cloud Carib participen en este diálogo. Nuestros servicios ofrecen a las entidades, públicas y privadas, la oportunidad de mejorar su capacidad de recuperación y reducir su perfil de riesgo”, dijo Xeroudakis.

Xceedance Announces Global Availability of MGA Agility Suite

U.K. MGA Archipelago Risk Services adopts the next-generation offering to sell and service its personal lines coverages and package policies

CaribPR Wire, BOSTON, May 06, 2019: Xceedance, a global provider of insurance consulting, managed services, technology, data sciences, and blockchain solutions, today announced the availability and client implementation of a new software and services offering, the MGA Agility Suite.

The Xceedance MGA Agility Suite enables established and startup program administrators, managing general agents (MGAs), and managing general underwriters (MGUs) worldwide to swiftly deploy a tailored, advisor-driven sales and service engine to capture profitable market segments — a key competitive differentiator in managing diverse insurance products, especially lower-margin classes of business.

Additionally, Xceedance announced a successful implementation of the MGA Agility Suite for Archipelago Risk Services (Archipelago), helping the London-based MGA to boost underwriting efficiency and augment the policyholder experience.

“The Xceedance MGA Agility Suite provides software and associated services to support MGAs in insurance markets worldwide,” said Travis MacMillian, chief business officer at Xceedance. “MGA operations typically rely on software or platforms intended for primary insurers. In contrast, the dedicated MGA Agility Suite comprises an insurtech platform, coupled with lifecycle services for program administrators, MGAs, and MGUs.”

Through advanced software development and integration with a diverse set of technologies that support operational efficiency, the MGA Agility Suite gives MGAs and their retail agents proficient automation for personalized, intermediated policyholder services. The MGA Agility Suite combines policy-administration capabilities, an underwriting platform, distribution and communication tools, and the business intelligence (BI)/reporting functionality MGAs need to write more business efficiently and profitably. The MGA Agility Suite facilitates regulatory compliance and partnerships with organizations such as actuaries and third-party administrators (TPAs); and it enables robust integration with insurance data providers, payment gateways, general ledger applications, and document generation services. The platform can be hosted on the cloud for superior performance in managing diverse insurance products and core MGA/MGU operations.

“The MGA Agility Suite elevates our personalized service delivery to program administrators, especially with an innovative broker and underwriter portal, and a configurable rating/pricing engine,” said MacMillian. “The automated workflows and streamlined policy lifecycle processes built into the MGA Agility Suite create transactional efficiencies, while enhancing user experience and customer-centricity for MGAs and MGUs.”

Archipelago recently deployed the MGA Agility Suite, providing the company with a single platform for clients — via intermediaries — to purchase motor (auto), home, investment property, travel, and pet insurance, quickly and efficiently. In implementing the bespoke platform, Archipelago leveraged operational expertise from five principal insurance capabilities at Xceedance: technology and core systems; actuarial services; insurance data sciences; catastrophe and exposure management; and BI and reporting.

“The Xceedance MGA Agility Suite empowers us with highly-automated workflows and a streamlined policy lifecycle — boosting organizational efficiency, enhancing the policy buying experience, and lowering operating costs,” said Richard Coleman, managing director at Archipelago Risk Services.

About Xceedance
Xceedance is a global provider of strategic consulting and managed services, technology, data sciences, and blockchain to insurance organizations.

ColoHouse launches Scrubbing as a Service as it continues to safeguard its customers from DDoS attacks and provides business continuity

CaribPR Wire, MIAMI and THE HAGUE, Netherlands, Jan. 15, 2019: ColoHouse, a leading data center and managed services provider, adds DDoS protection services to its product offering for customers and prospects.

What is Scrubbing as a Service?
DDoS prevention can be explained best as Scrubbing as a Service. Scrubbing as a Service cleans all user data coming into your network and “scrubs” it through a series of global networks to ensure only clean data is transferred with no latency in the process.

DDoS attacks can disrupt any business of any size. These attacks can cause interruptions with your business operations, current users and can affect your bottom line. DDoS attacks degrade the performance and availability of your network.

ColoHouse’s DDoS protection services offer you high-performance protection against DDoS attacks. The Scrubbing as a Service model allows the quick identification of an attack as it comes in and reroutes it to the mitigation platform to start cleaning up your traffic in a matter of seconds. Additionally, ColoHouse’s solution supports real-time monitoring, proactive reporting, and automated filtering.

ColoHouse provides a customizable IT solution to include the correct level of protection necessary. ColoHouse offers Scrubbing as a Service options for colocation, cloud and managed service offerings. Through BGP, ColoHouse is able to scrub other carriers in addition to their own network to create redundancy for our potential clients.

“DDoS attacks are alive and well in 2019. We have customer who are being proactive and are already live on our services. Some of these attacks are short lived, only lasting a few seconds, making them harder to identify if it was a system error or a DDoS attack. We hope both prospects and customers alike are protecting their businesses from any interruptions that could lead to costly repercussions and damaging their credibility,” says Savvas Bout, Chief Technology Officer.

ColoHouse’s DDoS whitepaper, “Is Your Business Safe from A DDoS Attack?” provides you tips to identify and mitigate a DDoS attack:

  1. How to know if you are under attack? Typically, your network is unusually slow and certain websites are not available. Your servers experience extremely high load-level.
  2. Creating an action plan within your organization. You need to ask your IT department and executive team members the following questions: What needs to be protected? Why does it need to be protected? What are available protection options? Which is the best option? Who and how will they provide protection? And most importantly, what is the cost of to our business and reputation if your services are unavailable?

ColoHouse lanza Scrubbing como un servicio que continúa protegiendo a sus clientes de ataques DDoS y proporciona continuidad de negocio

CaribPR Wire, MIAMI y LA HAYA, Países Bajos, Jan. 16, 2019: ColoHouse, un proveedor líder de centros de datos y servicios administrados agrega servicios de protección DDoS a su oferta de productos para clientes y prospectos.

¿Qué es Scrubbing como Servicio?
La prevención de DDoS se puede explicar mejor como Scrubbing como Service. Scrubbing como Service limpia todos los datos de los usuarios que entran en su red y los “restringe” a través de una serie de redes globales para garantizar que sólo se transfieren datos limpios y sin latencia en el proceso.

Los ataques DDoS pueden interrumpir negocios de cualquier tamaño. Estos ataques pueden causar interrupciones en las operaciones de su negocio, en los usuarios actuales y pueden afectar sus resultados. Los ataques DDoS degradan el rendimiento y la disponibilidad de su red.

Los servicios de protección DDoS de ColoHouse le ofrecen protección de alto rendimiento contra ataques DDoS. El modelo Scrubbing como Servicio permite la rápida identificación de un ataque a medida que se produce y lo redirige a la plataforma de mitigación para comenzar a limpiar su tráfico en cuestión de segundos. Además, la solución de ColoHouse soporta monitoreo en tiempo real, reportes proactivos y filtrado automatizado.

ColoHouse proporciona una solución de TI personalizable para incluir el nivel correcto de protección necesario. ColoHouse ofrece Scrubbing como una opción de servicio para la coubicación, la nube (cloud) y las ofertas de servicios administrados. A través de BGP, ColoHouse es capaz de eliminar otros operadores además de su propia red para crear redundancia para nuestros clientes potenciales.

“Los ataques DDoS están vivos y funcionando bien en 2019. Tenemos clientes que están siendo proactivos y ya están en vivo con nuestros servicios. Algunos de estos ataques son de corta duración, sólo duran unos segundos, lo que dificulta la identificación si se trata de un error del sistema o de un ataque DDoS. Esperamos que tanto los prospectos como los clientes estén protegiendo sus negocios de cualquier interrupción que pudiera tener repercusiones costosas y perjudicar su credibilidad”, dice Savvas Bout, Director de Tecnología.

El whitepaper de ColoHouse sobre DDoS, “Is Your Business Safe from A DDoS Attack”, le ofrece consejos para identificar y mitigar un ataque DDoS:

  1. ¿Cómo saber si estás siendo atacado? Típicamente, su red es inusualmente lenta y ciertos sitios web no están disponibles. Sus servidores experimentan un nivel de carga extremadamente alto.
  2. Crear un plan de acción dentro de su organización. Debe hacer las siguientes preguntas a los miembros de su departamento de TI y a los miembros de su equipo ejecutivo: ¿Qué es lo que hay que proteger? ¿Por qué necesita ser protegido? ¿Cuáles son las opciones de protección disponibles? ¿Cuál es la mejor opción? ¿Quiénes y cómo proporcionarán protección? Y lo más importante, ¿cuál es el costo para nuestro negocio y reputación si sus servicios no están disponibles?

Must Read Whitepaper, ‘Making Money With Network Slicing’, Hits The Shelves

Network Slicing Leader Cloudstreet Showcases the Vast Opportunities of this Promising New Mobile Business Model

CaribPR Wire, Espoo, Finland & Berlin, Germany, Oct. 23, 2018: Cloudstreet, ‘The Network Slicing Company’, is pleased to announce the publication of its most recent industry whitepaper, “Making Money with Network Slicing”. A business-forward take on the practice, the paper puts slicing at the very center of the mobile industry’s transition now underway. With a focus on practical, market-ready models, the authors unravel the misconceptions about Network Slicing, exploring its potential to disrupt the cultural and business logjams that have hampered growth.

Less about technology than a new way of doing business, Network Slicing has quickly risen from a mere buzzword to a budget line item, as mobile operators retool for the opportunities to come

“Inherently disruptive, it will create new business ecosystems to support unique and evolving demands that touch quite literally every industry sector and market segment. Like any evolution, it will start small and then scale exponentially as demand grows and the practice becomes more refined. The financial returns will quickly follow and soon become a core top line revenue generator.”

Showcasing several high-value, low-barrier examples including Fixed Wireless, Private LTE, Mobile Gaming and Live User Generated Content, to name a few, the study charts a carrier-friendly course for Network Slicing in today’s 4G networks, and a cogent strategy for staying competitive in what promises to be a highly competitive market in 5G.

“No doubt but that carriers need to lead the way and begin the process of transforming their businesses today” said Mika Skarp, Founder and CEO of Cloudstreet “The next generation of telecom isn’t just about improvements in speed and latency. These are not selling points in and of themselves, but reliability is,” he adds. “There are huge expectations of mobile networks that go well beyond what new antennas and spectrum alone can address. The moment that carriers move on from Best Effort to differentiated Quality-of-Experience and SLA-based business models, the next-generation of mobile will truly begin”

On the occasion of the paper’s publication, Mika Skarp wil be delivering a companion presentation at the Broadband World Forum, Network Slicing Summit, in Berlin Tuesday, October 23rd, 2018.

Analyst firm Arthur D. Little suggests that in meeting these demands, carriers can expect a 34% boost in revenues to 2026. That’s a big jump from today’s annual growth average of about 1%. But as the whitepaper points out, addressing the unique needs of multiple segments, particularly in industry 4.0, means being mission-critical ready, leveraging the power of Network Slicing to deliver virtualized dedicated resources to customers of all stripes. And it’s that special recipe, argue the authors, that will have a positive knock-on disruptive effect.

“Traditional go-to-market cycles will accelerate, mobile operator relationships with enterprise, government and small business will become more strategic, networks will become more efficient, resource allocation more logical and both current and future investments in capacity will show dramatically greater return.”

Drawing on years of experience as the first to deploy a market-ready Network Slicing capability at scale, as well as some of the most advanced PoCs, including a demonstration of End-to-End Network Slicing at the recent Telecom Infra Project’s TIP Summit 18 in London, Cloudstreet provides key insights from across functional groups, to paint a clear picture of this promising, soon-to-be defining feature of mobile networks.

Readers interested in the whitepaper can visit the Cloudstreet web site for their online or printable version.
