Protect Your Network & Customers from Distributed Denial of Service Attacks
DDoS attacks are growing larger, more frequent and more complex as broadband speeds increase and the number of insecure IoT devices rises.
An attack on any one of your customers could adversely impact hundreds of your customers, as connections become saturated with attack traffic and your routers run out of RAM and CPU cycles.
Our DDoS Protection service provides a simple way to mitigate the impact of Denial of Service attacks (including DDoS attacks).
Unfortunately, DDoS attacks are now inevitable. You need a plan to deal with them. Otherwise, an attack could leave you with a lot of unhappy customers and a large compensation bill for SLA breaches.
DDoS Protection can be offered to your customers as a premium service. Or you could bundle it into your standard offerings to help justify a higher price point.
No firewall, circuit or router can withstand a large DDoS attack. You need our industrial-scale traffic scrubbing by dedicated hardware hosted at well-connected peering locations across the globe.
There's no hardware to buy. Just pay a small monthly retainer, plus a usage-related charge for traffic scrubbed.
There's no hardware to set up. No firewall rules to set. You simply use BGP announcements to redirect your traffic through our service's scrubbers.
We can protect you against both flood attacks (TCP SYN, UDP etc) and logical attacks (Ping of Death, Local Area Network Denial, Teardrop etc)
This isn't like email filtering, where pre-written rules result in protection that's a bit hit-n-miss. Once the traffic scrubbers are invoked, the response to the attack is directed by experienced network security specialists that are skilled at analysing traffic flows and creating attack-specific filtering rules. These custom rules maximise your protection whilst minimising false positives (innocent traffic being blocked by accident).
The traffic scrubbing service is inconspicuously by design. When your customers are under attack, normal inbound traffic flows through the scrubbers unimpeded. Your customers web site visitors will have no clue that there's an attack going on. The servers won't be feeling the strain, as suspicious requests are blocked upstream before they can reach their target. If traffic to a given IP address is routed via hSo, there's no need to change IP addresses to activate the scrubbing. There's no need to install server plug-ins.
We monitor your network 24/7 for signs of DoS attacks... including DDoS attacks. If we see anything amiss, we will let you know ASAP. You call the shots as to what happens next: You can choose to unleash the traffic scrubbers immediately. Or wait to see if the attack persists. Perhaps you'd prefer for us to 'blackhole' the traffic while you change the IP address of the attacked host to wrongfoot the attackers. Our flexible approach helps you manage your attack mitigation costs and stay in control of how your attack is handled.
