As per the media statement made by Secure Network Operation Centre Ltd (Snoc), Thailand has been a victim of Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) due to the lack of a specialized protection. To save Thailand from the DDoS attacks, Snoc and Nexusguard have merged together to extend their hands of protection by forming their first cloud protection service.
Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack, which is also known as Volumetric Attack, is an attempt to make an online service unavailable by overwhelming it with traffic from multiple sources to its intended users. Regarding these DDoS attacks in Thailand Kittipan Sri-bua-iam, who is the Chief Executive Officer of Snoc said that DDos attacks cause a damage of THB$1.3 million (about US $39,600) per hour to an organization. He said, "Volumetric attacks are popular because the method is affordable and easy to execute. The cost to launch an attack is only THB$20 (US$0.60) in Thailand, while abroad the cost is approximately US$3 per target per hour.”
Bryan Sat, Regional Channel Manager of Nexusguard said,"Often, organisations do not realise they are under attack until it is too late. The damage has been done - their systems no longer function properly. The loss in revenue and reputation is staggering. Therefore, it is imperative to have a protection solution in place proactively."
In order to save the companies from these attacks, Snoc and Nexusguard have created a direct security system - the first of its kind in Thailand - to protect against loss due to DDoS attacks. Snoc proposed that it has aimed to secure 100 clients and generate 50 million within the first year of enhancing the country's cyber security. Snoc is putting effort to support the Thai Government and its Digital Economy Policy. Snoc is also launching a “Raise Your Hand If You’ve Been Attacked” campaign, which will provide free trials to organizations of cyber attack victim.Bryan Sat from Nexusguard assured the victims of DDoS saying, "Our global network presence includes Thailand, enabling us to protect against both foreign and domestic threats. Joining forces with Snoc will provide an end-to-end solution against cyber attacks for Thai enterprises.”
