DDoS Protection

Have you seen headlines like this one recently: Prominent business’ website brought to a halt by hackers? What’s behind a headline like that is most probably a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack. Unfortunately, it doesn't matter if you think you’re an unlikely target for a DDoS attack. No business is too small, too irrelevant, too unlikely or simply not interesting to become the next headline nowadays. The real question here is, are you prepared and how?

You've invested time and cash in building a working system and your customers expect to be able to receive your service in an uninterrupted fashion. Yet, there are thugs out there that mean you harm and the bad news is DDoS attacks are getting constantly cheaper (as low as $5/hour!) and easier to deploy. Further, DDoS is hard to detect and highly effective. By leveraging the attack power and frequency produced by networks of thousands of compromised machines (botnets), attackers can effectively shut you down, and because botnets are for sale, they can do it for as little as $100 per flood. By mimicking normal connection requests and sending packets like the ones generated by legitimate users and applications, DDoS attacks conceal themselves to look like usual day-to-day traffic.

DDoS can be fueled by financial reasons or pure ideology. The first is usually driven by extortion or competition. Seeking to obtain unfair business advantage powers the competition attacks, while the extortion based ones seek ransom in return for restored operability of a web site, for example. Ideological attacks can be the most devastating and powerful, as the bottom line typically doesn't have bearing on the attacking party’s willingness to bring you down.

While a DDoS attack can cost you significant revenue or reputation loss, it may be even more costly to attempt meaningful protection on your own. Considerable investments in network engineering, bandwidth allocations, software/hardware protection stacks and trained staff come into play, so for the bigger part it’s better to outsource the protection and procure it from companies that are specialized in doing just that, and offer you their services with an adequate SLA.

Impletec offers comprehensive DDoS protection services and products, built to protect your enterprise that tie in nicely with our other offerings in Content Delivery and High-Load Solutions to form a guarantee for your investment in service provision.

Proxy-Shield Protection
On-Site Protection
There are situations and scenarios, where an organization will not or cannot use an external service to filter malicious traffic and mitigate DDoS attacks. The fact that their traffic goes to an external Data Center (DC) for scrubbing and then enters the organization’s network may constitute a breach of this organization’s internal data security regulations and may not be viewed as politically correct from a strategic point of view.

Standard proxy-shield protection services for such organizations are largely inappropriate and sometimes merely impossible.

Due to establishment specifics and data security requirements that govern in your organization, you may require special “in-house” protection setups, where the entire protection solution stack is located within your own facility, serviced and maintained by your own trained staff with your own channels accommodating all attack traffic to be cleaned and fed to your servers.

We understand such needs very well, and readily offer such bespoke configurations and training to closely match your precise goals and performance requirements in DDoS Protection.

What would the Internet look like without the web sites, which have become the single, most important means of presentation and advertising for many businesses today?
