Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks can strike at any time with potentially devastating effects to your network.
At a minimum, these assaults compromise your customers’ experience and can often shut down networks completely, resulting in lost revenue and costly bandwidth charges. With these attacks becoming a regular threat to the online business community, it pays to be prepared. Xfernet has deployed devices with robust DDoS mitigation capacity and is prepared to combat large scale attacks like those mentioned below.
When notified of a possible DDoS attack, Xfernet’s expert security engineers analyze key network data and rapidly re-direct your incoming traffic to flow through our mitigation platform. The DDoS Protection Service platform is built on best-of-breed technology, which removes the attack and passes clean traffic through to your network, keeping you open for business online.
Comprehensive DDoS Protection
Xfernet protects applications and infrastructure against all types of DDoS threats. These include network-based attacks (e.g., Slowloris, ICMP or TCP & UDP floods) as well as application layer attacks (e.g., GET flood) that attempt to overwhelm server resources. Supporting Unicast and Anycast technologies, the service leverages a many-to-many defense methodology, automatically detecting and mitigating advanced DDoS attacks that exploit application and Web server vulnerabilities, hit-and-run DDoS events, and large botnets.
As the size of network DDoS attacks, such as SYN flood and DNS amplifications, continues to grow, organizations require robust network capacity to mitigate any threat that might come their way. Xfernet’s network infrastructure offers high capacity to thwart multi-gigabit DDoS attacks.
Automatic Detection and Activation
Xfernet offers automatic always-on DDoS protection, well-equipped to handle Hit and Run DDoS events, consisting of short bursts of traffic in random intervals over a long period of time. This type of attack can wreak havoc with DDoS protection solutions that need to be manually activated on every burst.Automatic detection and activation enables Xfernet’s DDoS protection to take full responsibility for both detection and mitigation of all attacks.
Xfernet’s Real-Time view supports the mitigation process by providing accurate visibility into Layer 7 traffic. Through Xfernet’s dashboards you can monitor Layer 7 DDoS attacks in real time, analyze the malicious traffic flow and adjust your security measures, while also benefiting from live and accurate feedback on every action taken.By providing accessible and actionable live information, Xfernet’s Real-Time view serves as an important security tool which enables data-driven response to DDoS threats and any other unwanted scenarios.
Block Any Type of Attack
Xfernet’s DDoS Protection service can detect and block the following types of DDoS attacks. Note that Xfernet proxies Web requests, so network layer DDoS attacks are never relayed to the client’s origin servers. Therefore, Xfernet’s DDoS protection can mitigate all network level attacks.
Mixed SYN + UDP or ICMP + UDP Flood
Ping of Death
Reflected ICMP & UDP
