Are You Protected From DDoS Attacks?
A distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack can quickly take your network or server offline — do you have a way of protecting against them?
DDoS attacks are one of the most common weapons in a cybercriminal’s arsenal. They’re used to disrupt and harass companies, overflowing their web traffic and taking websites, databases, and online marketplaces offline. The resulting downtime can cost you a lot in lost productivity and business.
Do you know how to protect against DDoS attacks?
How Does A DDoS Attack Work?
DDoS attacks are executed using a network of Internet-connected machines that have been infected with malware, allowing them to be controlled remotely by cybercriminals.
This group of machines (referred to as a “botnet”) is used by the attacker against a victim’s server or network. The attack is carried out by sending requests to the target’s IP address, potentially causing the server or network to become overwhelmed, resulting in a denial-of-service to normal traffic.
Defend Yourself With DDoS Mitigation
The good news is that there is a proven method for defending against attacks like this — with a DDoS mitigation solution. Generation IX is proud to offer a robust DDoS mitigation service, protecting our clients from frustrating and expensive downtime.
Our DDoS solution offers the following features:
- Rapid Detection & Response: A key factor in successfully mitigating a DDoS attack is how quickly the attack is identified and responded to. DDoS attacks can be difficult to detect when compared to normal high-traffic timeframes, which is why we configure our solution with your organization’s expected network activity in mind.
- Custom Routing: Dealing with a DDoS attack requires intelligent traffic routing, breaking up the overflow into chunks that your infrastructure can handle, and keeping your systems online and available.
- Scalability: Our solution can be scaled up or down to fit the needs of your business, and even further configured for day by day or seasonal spikes and dips in activity.
