A Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack can crash any site by overloading the server with traffic from multiple bot nets or ‘zombie’ machines.
The attack can come from anyone, based anywhere around the world.
The entire Digital Planet infrastructure is protected by a DDoS attack detection and mitigation system, handling volumetric attacks at the network layer to ensure that any potential attack against a system on our infrastructure cannot impact the entire environment. Volumetric attacks send a high amount of traffic, or request packets, to a targeted network in an effort to overwhelm its bandwidth capabilities. These attacks work to flood the target in the hopes of slowing or stopping their services. Digital Planet protects against these with a combination of on-premise protection appliances and a redirection facility to cloud-based scrubbing centres.
If you want targeted protection that is specifically configured to your environment, our DDoS Protection Services delivers multi-layered defence that is optimised for all types of online business and data centre protection. Our advanced DDoS protection service can help shield your business from both volumetric and non-volumetric attacks; SYN flood attacks, low and slow attacks, HTTP floods, and SSL-based attacks with automated protection against certain incident cases.
