StormWall Co-Founder in the Running for Prestigious Business Award

Information Sustainability business co-founder has been included in the shortlist of finalists for the prestigious MBA Entrepreneur of the Year 2021 award.

Ramil Khantimirov, the co-founder of StormWall has presented his Information Sustainability project for the MBA Entrepreneur of the Year 2021 award and was included in the shortlist of finalists. StormWall provides cybersecurity-as-a-service and introduces a concept of Information Sustainability: an idea that present-day society is dependent on the uninterrupted availability of information.

The Internet became an integral part of our lives. Our access to bank accounts, navigation systems, traffic control systems, and more all rely on the global web. But the luxury of uninterrupted access that we’re accustomed to is at risk. 

Today, DDoS attacks are the main stopping factor for the global development of the Internet infrastructure. 4.83 million DDoS attacks took place in the first half of 2020 alone, and their duration and strength keep on growing. Ramil co-founded StormWall to ensure the sustainability of the modern information-driven society by developing innovative DDoS protection solutions. StormWall is also actively involved in providing education about the importance of Information Sustainability and implementing grants for DDoS protection to ISPs in undeveloped African countries.
