Cybersecurity at PlusServer in detail

DDoS Mitigation

DDoS Mitigation

DDoS attacks differ in intensity and use a variety of attack vectors. They target different areas of application and network infrastructure. More complex attacks often also combine several attack vectors to strengthen the attack or elude bypass mechanisms. Sophisticated solutions are therefore required to ensure efficient DDoS protection. Our portfolio of DDoS solutions range from an entry-level solution through to a dedicated product, so we can optimally cover every need.



A modern firewall solution is another important component of your cybersecurity. High levels of visibility of the users, applications and devices in your network help you to ensure the security of your critical resources. Our firewall products cover the full spectrum of multivector threats and filter out harmful or unwanted traffic to proactively protect your valuable data from hacking or theft.
