Website users take it for granted that your website will be available and working reliably every time they visit. When DDoS attacks bring down your company’s website or cause frustrating delays in response times, they undermine the trust of users and customers, not to mention the negative impact on your bottom line.
Qrator Labs is the new leader in DDoS attack mitigation. Qrator, our innovative network filtering solution, helps mid-market and enterprise organizations proactively, reliably and affordably protect their websites from the most harmful, sophisticated DDoS attacks.
Unlike companies that charge you by the attack, we filter your website traffic 24/7 at a predictable, fixed monthly cost, so you can budget for DDoS protection and control IT costs, with no hardware to purchase. We work with organizations in a variety of industries including financial institutions, media, content aggregators, ecommerce and gaming.
Our engineers are key to our success. Hailing from some of the best technical universities in The world, the team spends much of their time engaged in research; deepening Qrator Labs' expertise in our core competencies:
In 2006 Alexander Lyamin, then a staff member of the Moscow State University (one of the world's top-rated universities), began a research initiative focused on the problems presented by DDoS attacks. For several years his team studied the mechanics of DDoS attacks and developed algorithms and measures that would allow users to effectively counter these potentially devastating threats.
By early 2009, the team had created a specialized application capable of automatic attack detection and filtering. To field-test the algorithms and hardware they developed, Lyamin released an open beta of the product. For 18 months, anyone vulnerable to DDoS attacks could test-drive the technology at no charge, in return for their feedback.
More than 600 companies and individuals took advantage of this opportunity, allowing Lyamin and his developers to assess the efficacy of the application in actual DDoS attacks, collect unique statistics, and fine-tune algorithms. To ensure optimal performance, they deployed a distributed network of specialized applications which would allow the system to intercept high volumes of malicious traffic before it could impact the intended target.
In 2009, Lyamin founded Qrator Labs, turning a highly successful research project into a successful commercial DDoS mitigation cloud. The company retains key members of the original research team to ensure continuous technology development.
In 2010, Qrator Labs launched Qrator, our own unique distributed filtering network. The first customers were Habrahabr, a leading IT portal; and Blogun, a major advertising network. Qrator's ease of use and efficiency led to much acclaim, and helped launch our company into the world marketplace, providing DDoS protection for organizations in financial services, media, gaming, government and more.
Today as our reputation for delivering preemptive, comprehensive DDoS protection grows, so does our company. Qrator is the default solution for DDoS mitigation in Russia, where we support more monthly subscriptions than any of our competitors. The increasing global demand for preemptive, blanket DDoS protection at flexible, affordable pricing has allowed us to open an office in Restone and to expand our footprint into US cities: San Jose, Dallas, Eschborn, Amsterdam, Stockholm, as well as in Russia, Kazakhstan, Hong Kong.
