While some organisations face a greater risk of distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks than others, anyone with an online presence can be a victim, facing significant financial, data and productivity losses, and damage to their reputation. The costs of finding, repairing and recovering from an attack can also be excessive.

You may not be able to prevent DDoS attacks, but you can equip yourself with the right defences to deal with them if they happen.

DDoS Protection and Mitigation protects your organisation from the consequences of even the most advanced, robust attacks. It detects when you’ve been compromised, and notifies you so you can act immediately.

Maintain operations while under threat

Helping you manage the risks of network downtime

DDoS Protection and Mitigation helps you manage the risks of network downtime as well as other risks associated with attacks, such as extortion and direct financial loss.

A DDoS attack attempts to slow down or even shut down the targeted server, site or network by inundating it with illegitimate traffic. By being able to redirect traffic when the network is under threat, you can safely continue operations and won’t be at risk of shutting down completely.

During an attack, some services may be slower or temporarily unavailable, but you will still mitigate the critical risks with DDoS Protection and Mitigation. 

If you do experience an attack, you’ll be able to download a report with information that will assist you to identify and address security weaknesses.

Defend your network against DDoS attacks

DDoS security critical as attacks escalate in volume and complexity

As technology evolves, DDoS attacks are becoming more sophisticated, complex and intense. They can be launched from clusters of connected devices, such as mobile phones, making it look like traffic is coming from all over the world.

This makes it harder to block traffic, and harder to catch the perpetrators. Smaller, more efficient botnets also make detection and mitigation more challenging.

DDoS attacks are the most prevalent denial-of-service (DoS) attacks, and therefore the biggest risk to your organisation. But constantly evolving attack methods means there’s no single technique, system or tool that can handle all potential threats.

Attacks coming from multiple sources outside the network aren’t easy to detect – it’s quite possible that you can be targeted, or even attacked, without knowing it.

Detect, mitigate and recover from internationally sourced DDoS attacks

DDoS Protection and Mitigation from Internet Solutions is a DDoS security service that makes your organisation resilient to even the most advanced and tenacious volumetric attacks. The most common form of DDoS attack, they attempt to slow down (or shut down) your sites, networks or servers by flooding them with huge volumes of traffic.

By instantly analysing the type and scale of the attack, and quickly redirecting network traffic through our scrubbing centre, you’ll be in a strong position to combat these large-scale attacks.

Options for managing traffic under threat

We offer three packages to help you manage the risk of loss and damage caused by these attacks, and protect your corporate information, intellectual property and client data. These packages give you different options for handling network traffic in the event of an attack so that you’re able to maintain normal operations.

The fully hosted cloud-based packages automatically detect volumetric DDoS attacks:

  • Cloud Blackhole Mitigation sends host server requests to a black hole
  • Cloud Scrubbing Mitigation scrubs all traffic so only clean traffic gets through

The Hybrid Cloud Mitigation package automatically detects application, TCP-state and volumetric attacks, and combines a cloud-based scrubbing service with an onsite CPE solution.

Services available

Whichever package you choose, you’ll have access to the following services:

  • Automatic detection of internationally sourced volumetric DDoS attacks
  • Protection of traffic via our scrubbing centre
  • Real-time alerts, reports and traffic dashboards on our self-service portal

Start the attack mitigation process automatically or manually

You can choose to start the attack mitigation process automatically, as soon as an attack is detected, or manually, by logging into our self-service portal to view the details of the attack and start the mitigation process.

A cost-effective DDoS security solution

DDoS Protection and Mitigation is a fully managed service

Because DDoS Protection and Mitigation is a fully managed service, you won’t have to invest in and maintain the hardware and software required to monitor and manage potential threats.

We use the latest technology and intelligence to provide effective mitigation against attacks that compromise the security of your systems and data.
