We are proud to announce the introduction of true Enterprise Level DDOS Protection services backed by an enormous 150GBPS network to protect against all known and zero day DDOS attacks. This protection will now come standard with every web hosting plan we offer.
Unlike a Denial of Service (DoS) attack, in which one computer and one internet connection is used to flood a targeted resource with packets, a DDoS attack uses many computers and many Internet connections, often distributed globally in what is referred to as a botnet. Worldwide users of pirated software are contributing to the growth of these attacks since most pirated software comes with hard to detect Trojans. These users of pirated software, without any knowledge, then become a small part of a botnet that an attacker combines with other unknowing users to perform DDOS attacks. The bigger the botnet, the bigger the attack is.
We’ve seen the rise of a new threat to worldwide networks and DDOS attacks that can no longer be filtered/stopped on the server level using standard DDOS filtering techniques. Arbor Networks found that 21 percent of all DDOS attacks topped 1GB/sec, while the most growth was seen in the 2-10GB/sec range. Networks getting flooded with 10,000,000 million packets per second don’t stand a chance without enterprise level protection. This is what enterprise hardware such as Juniper MX routers and advanced scrubbing techniques that can be applied on-the-fly are for.
