Proto Mail raised enough money to employ to protect one year




Proto Mail is picked up by a crowd fund campaign Gofundme more than $ 57,000. According to him, this is enough to protect the service over the next twelve months against DDoS attacks. To do that, the department started a partnership with RadWare.

Last week was the Swiss Agency for encrypted e-mail traffic to endure severe DDoS attacks. Proto Mail suggests itself that the attacks were so advanced that they are reminiscent of state hackers. In order to protect the service Proto Mail Defense Fund was set up. In five days, the target amount of $ 50,000 was more than hauled. The team behind the service said in his acceptance speech that the amount collected is sufficient to allow the service to protect the next twelve months.

In a new comprehensive statement about the attacks, Proto Mail writes on his website that the ddos’en still continue, but that it no longer be able to lay the infrastructure of the department lamb. That’s because Proto Mail in sea is gone with RadWare, a company which provides protection against DDoS attacks. The RadWare Defense Pipe-service managed last week to limit the attacks, so that the service could remain in the air. However, the service users can still experience interruptions due to repairs. Who is not yet clear behind the big attack. Proto Mail calls DDoS experts to contact us to analyze the data of the attack.

Although the amount raised is enough for now, Proto Mail argues that the cost will increase in the future, as the number of users of the service increases. Therefore, it is still possible to donate money to the fund. Money left over is allocated to a “Legal Defense Fund, with which Proto Mail would fund the defense against possible future legal charges.

Proto Mail also announced that the attack has affected the development of Proto Mail 3.0. The update was scheduled for late November, but that is not feasible, according to the team. A new date has yet been announced.
