In the late nineties, Tim Timrawi witnessed the arrival of a new cyber threat: DDoS Attacks. Having already worked in the hosting industry for four years, Timrawi immediately realized the potential of DDoS attacks to both hinder Internet traffic and, in time, only increase in scale and disruption. Noticing a lack in the market for DDoS protection services, Timrawi founded Sharktech, which was the first hosting firm to provide DDoS filtered IPs at a low price as well as to pioneer the low-cost DDoS mitigation industry.
After a decade of business growth and concentrated development, Sharktech offers businesses a complete package of high-transfer server hosting and managed services at affordable prices in three geo-diverse data centers, in addition to its DDoS protection services.
Today, Sharktech employs the most advanced DDoS protection solutions, comprised of layers of in-house engineered network equipment, hardware and software. Compared to competitors—who often require the detection of an attack, followed by the redirection of traffic through a scrubbing center—the Sharktech DDoS protection solution is always-on and does not require intervention.
Our staff members have an average of a decade’s worth of work experience in the hosting industry, including server administration as well as experience in supporting businesses similar to those of our customers. This diverse background gives us the opportunity to not only know our customers' needs but also to understand the worries and concerns they might have. Our motto always has been: "Treat a customer's server as if it were our own."
Our proprietary filtering system, which mitigates DDoS attacks and prevents them from affecting our customers' servers, gets improved upon on a daily basis. Our research and development team always has a project in the works and we communicate and collaborate with DDoS experts across the world as we strive to continually provide updates and better service to our customers.
