When I joined the BitNinja team in 2016, I heard the story about how BitNinja was born. It is a sister company of one the leading Hungarian shared hosting businesses and firstly it was only an in-house project to eliminate the hackers and bots. I wanted to learn more about the story and about how BitNinja changed this company's life, so I asked their CTO then. We wrote the case study, however, it was only available for our resellers yet, but now I'd like to share it with you too:
Web-Server is a Hungarian web hosting company with more than 10 years of experience. Their main profiles are web hosting, websites, domain registration, and email service. Furthermore, they can offer solutions for special needs, for example, physical servers. They have more than 15.000 clients including Discovery Hungary, Vodafone, and Husqvarna, that’s why it is necessary for them to have a reliable server security system.
„Before we started using BitNinja, we got a lot of DDoS attack from our competitor websites and the protection against them was very hard for us. Now, thanks to BitNinja’s special modul, all the botnet request are being rejected.” - Daniel Mecsei
They also got lots of complaints when a vulnerable website got an attack.
„Our clients were usually angry, when their websites became a victim, but now the WAF rejects these illegitimate requests” - Daniel Mecsei
„BitNinja offers a complete solution for us. It blocks the harmful attacks and puts the IP address to greylist at first, and after more attacks to the blacklist. These lists are centrally available and easy to access who, when and where started the attack.” - Daniel Mecsei
Besides the listing Daniel Mecsei, the CTO of the Web-Server, highlighted the 2 topmost modules:
„It is very great, that BitNinja makes Honeypot sites, which are vulnerable, but there are no real data available, because BitNinja is in the background. If these sites get an attack, they put the attacker’s IP address also on their lists. We also like the Malware module very much, which cleans the infected files, which our clients want to upload their websites. If the Malware cannot clean it, than it won’t let it run” - Daniel Mecsei
„BitNinja takes away all of our problems for what we spent 90% of our time before. In the past, our stability and availability were decreased, but BitNinja affected both of them very positively.
Thanks to the weekly reports, finally we have statistics about how many attacks were blocked, from which IP addresses, from which country, which were the most commonly attacked sites etc.. It’s good to be aware which country attacks us and also we can inform the owners if their websites are being attacked on long-term.” - Daniel Mecsei
