DDoS Protection

Secure your cloud servers from attacks

In a DDoS (distributed denial-of-service) attack, an attacker sends thousands of fake requests in an attempt to exceed the bandwidth, flood a server's resources, and overload the system. By doing this, valid requests can only be processed very slow or not at all. A massive amount of compromised computers called botnets are usually used to create massive data traffic. We utilize these automated protection tools to safeguard your web applications, websites, servers, and IT infrastructure from this threat. Our automated system identifies almost all attack patterns in advance, allowing it to block the attacks and stop the vast majority of them. It uses the latest hardware applications and sophisticated filter technologies, providing you with first-rate protection against large-scale DDoS attacks. And all that free of charge.

The security solution: DDoS Protection

Our system protects you and your data by utilizing Arbor and Juniper hardware.

Automated recognition of attack patterns

In addition to recognizing an attack based on the amount of traffic or the number of packets, we can clearly define the actual attack and then specifically home in on and react to that specific type of attack. For example, a UDP flood with 500k PPS is harmless for a server. A 500k SYN packet, however, could pose a problem. Our DDoS protection tools can detect precisely this type of difference.

Filtering traffic for known attack patterns

This method allows us to effectively filter out the most commonly known attacks by putting them through traffic scrubbing filters. The process successfully scrubbed out the following attacks: DNS reflection, NTP reflection, and UDP floods on port 80.

Challenge-Response authentication and dynamic traffic filtering

This final layer filters out attacks in SYN floods, DNS floods, and invalid packets. We can also flexibly adapt to other unique attacks and reliably mitigate them. The above technologies support a high level of automation, which our technicians continually optimize step by step. We can improve the system by analyzing each attack and constantly adjusting our filters and responses.

How does it affect customers?

DDoS protection has not caused costs or prices to increase and is available to all customers. Our system detects DDoS attacks at all times, and its ability to recognize them continually improves. Once an attack is identified, the dynamic DDoS protection tools immediately go into action and filter out the attack. The DDoS protection system usually does not affect your traffic due to its dynamic mitigating methods.
