Distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks attempt to deny legitimate users access to your systems or networks by overwhelming them with bogus requests. They target important resources, like network bandwidth, server sockets, web server threads, and CPU utilization.
DDoS Mitigation helps maintain availability for your Managed Hosting services through a unique hardware-based protection system. It combines two powerful alerting technologies to identify an attack (network-level packet scanning and server-level anomaly detection) and then precision elimination of DDoS traffic to mitigate its effects.
Identify and filter hostile traffic 24x7x365 with layered protection built using multiple technologies for the most comprehensive protection.
Offload DDoS processing
Keep your infrastructure resources focused on business workloads by offloading DDoS processing to our mitigation hardware.
When our network security team is alerted to an ongoing or imminent DDoS attack, they immediately initiate mitigation measures and contact you.
Backed by security specialists. During initial setup, a security engineer works with you to set up your DDoS solution. After that, our system continually tunes your server profiles for peak performance. If you ever have questions or need help, security specialists are available to provide Fanatical Support®—24x7x365.
Get the robust, multi-layered protection needed to mitigate today's advanced DDoS attacks—without upgrades or changes to your architecture. Our system works independently from your production infrastructure.
Network-level traffic analysis
Sophisticated detection technology, capable of handling tens-of-millions of packets per second, examines all incoming packets for patterns of malicious activity.
Server-level anomaly detection
Continuous monitoring compares current traffic to a custom profile of your server's "normal" network and port behavior. Anomalous behaviors immediately trigger an alert to our network security team.
Packet filtering and rerouting
When suspicious traffic is detected, your traffic is routed through a sanitation engine that filters out and diverts malicious traffic. All legitimate traffic continues to its intended destination.
