Tucknologies Taps Liquid Web to Mitigate Cyber Attacks for Phone Apps
App platform Tucknologies needed help ensuring a malware or DDoS attack wouldn't disrupt their banking and insurance clients' apps. Liquid Web came through with security services and 24/7/365 support.
Tucknologies Founder Craig Tucker helps developers create a host of smartphone apps and a flexible data visualization platform. Their data visualization platform lets them create custom dashboards that display graphs to track sales, web traffic, and other crucial business information. While all of these complex applications require powerful development, production, database, and web servers - they also require protection from frequent malware and DDoS attacks.
The frequency and sophistication of cyber attacks on Tucknologies were threatening to have severe consequences for the business. For example, if one such attack was not mitigated for a banking and insurance company client, all of the client’s email servers could have been blacklisted, preventing them from sending emails and severely minimizing their flow of business. With large amounts of revenue and reputation on the table, preventing a breach was a serious concern for Tucknologies Chief Technology Officer Brian Novak. Because of these types of security concerns, along with the powerful capabilities offered to developers, Tucknologies turned to Liquid Web for help.
