INCO partners with Cloudflare to protect school websites

blog cloudfare protect school websites

One of INCO's servers was hit with a DDOS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack against a school website. This hit the server with 2Gbps traffic. The server was re-enabled after the initial attack ceased but the attack started again.

A DDOS attack on a school is unheard of. Typical targets would be Sony, Xbox and iTunes. We don't host any sites that would be considered targets.

As a result of this we partnered with Cloudflare to provide, amongst other things, a DDOS protection layer for all sites on the affected server. Further details of the Cloudflare solution and the roll-out to all of our clients will be provided in the next few weeks.

We have over thirteen years experience working in the education sector and can tailor our services to you and your budget, please do get in touch by emailing us at info@inco-education.co.uk or by calling 01902 784800.
