ProtonMail comes back online, shores up DDoS defenses
ProtonMail, the Switzerland-based encrypted email service, has found its footing again after a wild ride over the past week.
The free service has said it was hit by two different groups using distributed denial-of-service attacks (DDoS) that took it offline.
Now it has partnered with Radware, which offered its DDoS mitigation service for a “reasonable price,” allowing service to resume, ProtonMail wrote in a blog post on Tuesday.
“The attackers hoped to destroy our community, but this attack has only served to bring us all together, united by a common cause and vision for the future,” the company wrote.
