Startup Gladius presented a solution to prevent DDoS attacks
“Where my 17 years?”, — I ask myself, looking at the team Gladius. The eldest of them, the co-founder and CEO max Niebylski (left), now 20. Today you guys launched a P2P platform to prevent DDoS attacks. Simply put, blockchain-solution Gladius will help companies keep their sites safe and sound.
A denial of service or DDoS is the biggest problem for all system administrators. Imagine you had a website and here it is not. The result of such attacks, hackers overload the system and it, in part or in full, ceases to respond to external stimuli.
84% of sites are facing DDoS attack every year. The average downtime due to such an attack is 54 minutes, the average loss of $22 thousand per minute. That’s why this decision is very popular.
“A rational solution to DDoS problems had never existed, says Sibilsky. The problem is that all providers are centralized services, bot in the planet, carrying out such attacks — decentralized. Centralized companies are simply not able to oppose something to such threats. We fight with Gladius distributed attack a distributed solution.”
Gladius has created analytical tools and protective algorithm. Connecting to the platform, you can use the power of other nodes. This allows not only to optimize the performance of a network resource, but also enhance the level of protection. Administrators of the connected resources will perform the function of miners and get rewarded in tokens GLA.
Now the service is undergoing beta testing. In order to understand the potential scale of the platform, the Gladius has partnered with cloud provider Digital Ocean. According to Sibilski until the network is overloaded, one company can withstand much heavier than usual attack.
Gladius working on the Ethereum blockchain. But thanks to peer-to-peer overlay platform can operate much faster than Air.
“It’s a bit like Uber, says Sibilsky. — Many people have cars, but nobody uses them constantly. Most servers only uses 30% of its capacity, and we offer a way to monetize this resource.”
