An online marketing firm that specializes in network marketing says it has been hit by a massive denial-of-service attack that wiped out nearly 80% of its servers.
The firm, Momentis, said Thursday that the denial- of- service attack was triggered when its website was redirected to a site that said “the page you requested has been deleted.”
Momentis is one of the first companies to embrace the growing trend of network marketing as part of its business model.
The company says its network marketing business helps clients reach potential clients in the same way they would with traditional phone-based marketing.
The company, based in San Francisco, says it is currently experiencing a high volume of traffic from users trying to reach customers on other websites.
The attack comes as a response to the fact that people are increasingly using social media to find customers.
That means that the more people interact with people on social media, the more they will want to reach out to them.
The problem, according to the company, is that traditional phone marketing isn’t really designed to meet that demand.
Momentises CEO Michael McQuade says his company has found a way to make its website a better experience by redirecting people to the right website.
Moments network marketing platform has more than a dozen clients, including Apple, Amazon, Microsoft, Facebook and Google.
The platform has been used in a variety of industries, including healthcare, retail, media and more.
