Centennial, CO - Centennial based Barricade Technologies www.barricadetechnologies.com today announced that it’s Incident Response team is dealing with the backlash from yesterdays outage at GoDaddy.
Yesterday up to 10.5 Million sites of customers of GoDaddy were down according to the New York Times. As of 10:09 MST GoDaddy has not explained what has happened but acknowledged the outage.
“Today GoDaddy, tomorrow Google and Facebook” was the quote from MSNBC.
“The trend we are seeing is very daunting, even more daunting is getting small businesses on the security path.” Notes Gregory Tanner CEO of Barricade Technologies. “ This comes on the back news of the Apple ID codes that were leaked in the millions last week, yesterday put some anxiety in people and now we see that business are taking a more proactive stance starting with their web assets.”
Barricade is helping build plans for recovering from such an outage, making sure businesses understand what assets they have on the web and how to avert a disaster. “Most of our customers realized that they didn’t even have a number to call when the web page was down.” Says Jonhattan Ruiz of Barricade. “The next big statement was ‘I don’t know if I have a back up’ or ‘my back up is here somewhere’.”
The team is mostly helping with plans and insuring that businesses understand what key assets are at stake if they rely on the web or cloud services. “Disaster Recovery Planning is a key aspect of layered security. If you don’t have a plan in place to deal with an outage of this type it could put you out of business. “ adds Tanner
