All our servers are protected from up to 600Gbps of DDoS via global filtering PoPs. Our network consists of live filters which balance the bad traffic across worldwide packet scrubbing points. We protect against common Layer 3, 4 and 7 attacks also including specific types such as A2S and VSE attacks. We can guarantee no downtime due to DDoS Attacks.
A Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack is designed to purposely interfere and overload the network of the target's server. The attacker's goal is to lag or completely take the server offline by overloading the server's network with hauls of packets which cannot be processed by the limited capacity of the network.
A Denial of Service (DoS) attack is different from a DDoS attack. The DoS attack typically uses one computer and one Internet connection to flood a targeted system or resource. DoS attacks are easier to block as usually one IP can be traced and filtered. The DDoS attack uses multiple computers and Internet connections to flood the targeted resource.
