I have worked with activereach as our primary LAN and wireless networking supplier for a number of years.
We recently had a site power outage that impacted the core network in our head office and the link to our main warehouse. activereach were able to supply us with replacement equipment the same day and arranged for one of their own engineers to come onsite at 4am to make sure that we did not lose a trading day in the busy run-up to our peak trading season.
Email and VoIP services were targeted more frequently by DDoS attacks than in 2017 than in previous years. This could suggest focus is shifting to exploit more vulnerable services.
