New Blackholing features, unmissable interconnection summit, and a big win!
October ended with a big celebration: DE-CIX was named the Best Internet Exchange for the fifth time in the Global Carrier Awards. Without our customers and partners and our great team, we would not have been able to build our unrivalled interconnection ecosystems. So a big thank you goes out to all of you!
In other news, we constantly get requests from our customers for new features for our popular Blackholing service. We hear you loud and clear: we have now – first as a beta version in Frankfurt – introduced Blackholing Advanced and Blackholing Insights to help you to optimize your response to a DDoS attack. If you are a customer in Frankfurt, check out the website and login to the customer portal to take advantage of these new features.
November 12 is the date for the DE-CIX interconnection summit – Madrid edition. This online event is taking place in virtual reality and is a must for anyone interested in how the digitalization of enterprise business models impacts interconnection services, and the the role of Southern Europe on the global interconnection map. The event is both in English and in Spanish with simultaneous translation – make sure not to miss it!
