Prolexic Defends Middle Eastern Free Speech Forum
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Jan. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Saudi Arabia based web forum, Tomaar, has selected Prolexic Technologies to protect it from continuous cyber attacks. Tomaar is an outlet for freethinking Saudis that aims to influence government policy and drive social reform. The website tackles issues which are often not acknowledged, let alone discussed publicly, such as women's rights, equality, discrimination and homophobia. As a result, it has some strong opposition, including religious fundamentalists who have targeted it numerous times with Distributed Denial of Service attacks. Mohammed, Tomaar's co-founder and an administrator at Tomaar said: "Tomaar represents the acceptance of different types of thought, and its existence represents the voice of the people -- we have a duty to Saudis to keep it running. None of the ISPs we have used have been able to protect us from these DDoS attacks but once we started working with Prolexic we were able to maintain access for our members and readers for which we are extremely grateful." Keith Laslop, President, Prolexic Technologies, said: "DDoS attacks are launched for a number of reasons -- usually extortion or competitive advantage, but we do see attacks motivated by opposition to a website's ideology. Tomaar has been targeted with constant DDoS attacks, however under Prolexic's protection the site has been unaffected by efforts to bring it down. We're proud to have assisted Tomaar in its mission to promote free speech and drive social reform in the Middle East."
