Effective protection against DDoS attacks

DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) mitigation to suit your needs

What is a DDoS attack?

The abbreviation DDoS stands for Distributed Denial of Service. The objective of a DDoS attack is to overload the targeted system by launching a targeted attack from several locations. Unprotected systems – computers, servers or devices networked in the Internet of Things – are also infected with malicious software. In doing so, the infected systems can be remotely controlled to direct a high number of requests to a web environment over a short period of time. There are also intelligent attacks, in which the pattern of the attack is constantly changing in order to permanently avoid the defensive mechanisms of the attacked system.

DNS forwarding solutions

Our DNS forwarding solutions efficiently protect your website or online shop against complex attacks. State-of-the-art filter technologies are used in an external, worldwide security network. In this way your hosting infrastructure is protected against most types of DDoS TCP-and TCP-HTTP-based attacks. In addition, attacks on your application are prevented with the help of a Web Application Firewall (WAF). Moreover, modern analysis methods are automated and applied virtually in real time to all data traffic in order to block harmful traffic.

BGP-based solutions

The BGP-based products work with permanent routing of incoming traffic to the Akamai Scrubbing Center. This is followed by forwarding to your hosting infrastructure. In this way the traffic is automatically filtered for DDoS and other attack patterns. Malicious traffic is detected and stopped early on before it reaches your hosted systems. With always-on you benefit from permanent protection of your web servers. Your hosting infrastructure is protected against most types of DDoS TCP-, TCP-HTTP-, UDP- and ICMP-based attacks.

Dedicated hardware

With our dedicated-hardware solutions, even intelligent and complex attacks are successfully fended off. By using the latest filter technology, your hosting infrastructure is protected against most types of DDoS TCP-, TCP-HTTP-, UDP- and ICMP-based attacks. Malicious traffic is blocked in time using modern analysis methods to automatically examine all traffic virtually in real time. The intelligent protection even identifies camouflaged attack patterns based on algorithms and previously detected attacks.

Which DDoS protection for which applications?

Websites / online shops

Web-facing applications that can be accessed via the browser are a popular target for attackers. Our DNS forwarding solutions provide the perfect protection. A Web Application Firewall (WAF) can also be used to prevent attacks on the application level.

Complete infrastructure

BGP-based solutions protect the entire infrastructure (online shop /website/VPN/FTP/e-mail/database) in the subnetworks that you assign. In addition to the website or online shop, these also include the e-mail server, databases and any other application that can be reached via TCP/IP.

Downtime Cost Calculator

What is the cost of downtime for your company?

Many companies are unaware of the actual financial loss that is involved with the temporary loss of their online infrastructure. The experts at the Gartner blog speak of an average of 5,600 dollars a minute - but there are big differences depending on the business size and the dependency on the online business.

Our cost calculator can help you bring some light into the darkness. Just enter some values and you can see in real time how your cost evolves in the course of a downtime.

Free DDoS basic protection from PlusServer

As a managed hosting provider, PlusServer operates DDoS basic protection in all its data centres. This protects you, as your systems are no longer accessible during attacks on other customers. All types of attacks are detected quickly and appropriate countermeasures are taken.

This solution does not, however, guarantee accessibility to your own systems during an attack. In addition, downtimes caused by DDoS attacks are usually excluded from Service Level Agreements (SLA).

Without DDoS protection companies can face:

Revenue losses


Your customers cannot reach you over the internet during and after an attack, meaning you do not make any sales during this time. If you have started an expensive marketing campaign your expenses may, in the worst case, have been for nothing.

Damaged reputation


Whether your customers are unnerved and go to the competition or even become victims of a breach of data protection during a cyberattack: your reputation will suffer as a result of the attack and it will take you a long time to repair it.

Productivity losses


Your employees cannot work productively if they cannot access important data. Note that cybercriminal attacks can also target applications or databases.

Loss of data


In addition to extortion, cybercriminals have also discovered the theft of corporate and customer data. This can lead to high damage claims and also cause irrevocable damage to the company.

How does a DDoS attack work, what are the trends and above all: How do you protect your company from it? The free e-book from PlusServer and RESMEDIA contains everything you need to know about technical and legal questions.

CDN

Even more security and faster data

Accelerate the global delivery of your data with a Content Delivery Network (CDN). It also increases your protection against DDoS attacks, as they are distributed across various nodes rather than burdening a single environment.

BSI certification

BSI certification

Security has always been a priority for us. This is why our data centre in Dusseldorf has been certified by the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) in accordance with IT basic protection/ISO 27001 since September 2009. The certification confirms the quality of our work and also allows us to continue to verify it in line with official standards.

Your advantages

  • Highest possible availability
  • Better protection against outside attacks (hackers, DoS attack, defacement, etc.)
  • Optimal security, even with sensitive data and the highest requirements
  • Neutral and independent certification body confirms the level of security.

Glossary

BGP

Border Gateway Protocol. The routing protocol connects individual networks on the internet and ensures that data packets reach their destination. With BGP-based DDoS protection, traffic is sent to be cleaned before it arrives at the target system.

DNS

Domain Name System. The DNS is used for name resolution on the internet, i.e. it assigns a domain (example.co.uk) to the correct IP address of the target system. For the DDoS protection solution, a DNS record is adapted to first guide the traffic through a filter infrastructure outside of the target network.

WAF

Web Application Firewall. It protects web applications by analysing, filtering and blocking HTTP traffic. The Hypertext Transfer Protocol is used for communication on the internet to retrieve data from a web server.
